New for 2016! eBook Format for NCHEC Publications
You asked for digital format… so
here it is! The Health
Education Specialist: A Companion Guide for Professional Excellence 7th edition, and A Competency-Based Framework
for Health Educators, as now released in eBook format (new editions only).
The eBook version offers students, faculty, and industry professionals the opportunity to
utilize NCHEC study materials on whatever device they choose – without the added
weight of a textbook.
“The eBook versions are offered at a discounted price, are
immediately downloadable, and they eliminate the problem of toting a heavy manual
around,” said Jessica Wessner, project coordinator. “They also provide the ability to highlight
and bookmark material and adjust font size according to preference.”
And if you
own several devices, the eBook purchase price covers several downloads. So
study away, wherever you are most comfortable!
The new eBook format has been anticipated by students and
professors who have become familiar with the usage of digital textbooks in
their classrooms and study regimens. At the recent APHA conference in Chicago,
Illinois, NCHEC staffers noticed that interest in the eBook version was significantly
on the rise. “The Companion Guide has
been an important resource for exam candidates, as well as for existing
practitioners,” said Linda Lysoby, NCHEC Executive Director. “We are happy to
meet the request for this electronic format.”
recently published 2015 textbooks contain revised Responsibilities,
Competencies, and Sub-competencies from the latest Health Education Specialist
Practice Analysis (HESPA) model, and reflect the changes in the
MCHES exam (April 2016) and the CHES exam (October 2016).
Both publications are currently available for purchase on
the NCHEC website.
