An added program value comes from the CEUs or CMEs provided. Typically, this training provides nursing CEUs at 31.2 hours and CMEs of AMA PRA Category I Credits at 26.1. The credits are provided to healthcare professionals from all states through the Interstate Postgraduate Medical Association and the California Board of Registered Nursing. Enrollees may wish to verify with their state licensing Board which is most appropriate to acquire.

Certificate of Competency in Clinical Health Coaching

Once participants successfully complete the online portion of the Clinical Health Coach training, they are eligible to earn a Certificate of Competency in Clinical Health Coaching. The Certificate of Competency is earned by receiving a passing score of 70% on three multiple choice examinations provided through the web-based course experience and achieving a passing score on a Competency Evaluation.

The Competency Evaluation is a 15-minute telephonic coaching encounter with a standardized patient in a clinical scenario.  Detailed information regarding the Competency Evaluation is provided in the online learning portal. Competency Evaluation coaching conversations are recorded and evaluated by an experienced third party coach/evaluator.

Compass PTN requires that participants take the competency evaluation. If the participant does not pass and would like to take the evaluation again, Compass will not pay the $100 fee for the retake. Whether or not the participant passes the evaluation, they will benefit from gaining insightful feedback on their performance.
