National Consortium for Health Science Education (NCHSE)

The National Consortium for Health Science Education is a national partnership of individuals and organizations with a vested interest in health science education and providing the highest quality healthcare possible.

The consortium was organized in 1991 to stimulate creative and innovative leadership for ensuring a well-prepared healthcare workforce. Together, we shape the future healthcare workforce.

Their Story: "Driven by high cost, rapid technological changes, increased demand for health services, and dramatic employment growth in the healthcare community, a variety of studies, proposals, and legislative initiatives continue to emerge. Each of these studies, proposals, and initiatives has an impact on health science education programs nationwide that prepare healthcare employee candidates. Formation of the consortium followed numerous discussions among health careers educators from several key states. The group recognized the critical need to reduce duplication and fragmentation of healthcare educational efforts and to position the educational system to meet the human resource demands of the healthcare industry. At the initial charter meeting, the mission, purpose, and goals were formulated. These statements of intent formed the basis for futuristic planning necessary for maintaining programs that are consistent with the human resource needs of the healthcare industry, responding to changing demographics of the nation, and providing for global recognition of the highest quality healthcare available. The National Consortium for Health Science Education is an incorporated, non-profit organization and has a 501(c)(3)tax exempt status by the Internal Revenue Service."

The presence of the CareerSafe and NCHSE partnership is powerful as we speak with one voice on a health science education framework that encourages academic and technical excellence ensuring a career-ready workforce. CareerSafe joins over twenty companies in this membership category, who are partnering with our organization to support health science education programs.  CareerSafe will participate in sharing standards set forth by the National Health Science Standards (NHSS).  In addition, CareerSafe will participate at the annual National Health Science Conference and share resources with health science state educators to bring back relevant information back to their students in the classroom.
