Over the years covering the healthcare IT and EHR job market, our top posts on Healthcare IT Today have been around getting Epic Certification and Cerner Certification. In particular, this post about getting epic certified and this follow up post on epic certification have been extremely popular. If you’re in health care IT, then you’ve likely been interested in Epic or Cerner certification. There’s a lot of work for both of those companies and it pays well.
- Work for a health system that is implementing Epic
- Get hired by a health system who needs your skill set
- Work for Epic directly
I wish there were more options, but those really seem to be the only options out there to date. Maybe one day Epic will change that policy, but I wouldn’t be holding my breathe on that change happening.
Remember also that when you get the Epic certification from one of the customers or working for Epic directly, you’ll have to sign an agreement to not take your skills somewhere else for a certain period of time. However, that’s a topic for another post.
I’d love to learn other insights into Epic certification and Cerner certification. Please share your experiences in the comments.
