Advance Your MSP Career during NAMSS Education Month 2023
by NAMSS Staff
MSPs play a vital and irreplaceable role in healthcare, as their work is essential to patient safety. MSPs are aware of the level of responsibility they have to ensure those receiving medical care are in the best and most qualified hands. Thus, they understand that they must continue to expand their skillset and improve their current practices in order to become a better MSP.
As an MSP searching for ways to grow, one way to do this is to achieve certifications. By achieving certification in their field, MSPs demonstrate their commitment to protecting patients. Additionally, certifications show that MSPs are experts in their field, validate their experience in management, and enhance their overall value within their healthcare system.
NAMSS is there every step of the way for MSPs working to achieve their certifications. During Education Month, NAMSS offers three courses: the Virtual CPCS® Prep Course, the Virtual CPMSM® Prep Course, and the Virtual Credentialing 101 Course.
These courses assess MSPs’ current knowledge, teach them how to prepare for exams, and help them achieve their certifications.

All Education Month courses are taught by NAMSS course instructors who represent some of the best MSPs in the profession.
