Credentialing is the process by which a healthcare agency verifies that a practitioner has the required education, training, and experience to practice in their specialty. State or local laws and rules may specify the types of credentials. Healthcare facility bylaws set out credentialing procedures internally.
The NCMA may grant a credential to an applicant whom holds an active credential with another credentialing agency in the United States and Internationally through reciprocity.
The required documentation for all reciprocity applicants is listed below. The documentation must be uploaded as part of the online application process.
Current credential(s) or certification(s);
Previous credential(s) or certification(s), if applicable;
Current CPR certification from the American Heart Association at the BLS Provider level, and;
Current government photo ID.
Applicants who apply for reciprocity are required to submit proof of education, or proof of active employment as a practitioner for two of the past five years.
