What Percentage of AGNPs Pass the Certification Exam?

It's clearly certification season for spring nurse practitioner graduates so we're discussing certification stats here at MidlevelU this week. The certification exam is a source of anxiety (understandably) for nurse practitioner new grads. Some insight as to what to expect with the NP certification exam can help. 

If you're wrapping up your Adult Gerontology Nurse Practitioner program this year and plan to take the AANPCB certification exam, here's a peek at historic pass rate stats. 

AGNP grads have an 80.6% likelihood of passing the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Board's exam based on data from the last four years. So, most grads are likely to meet standards. Still, we suggest penciling in some study time on the calendar! 

How do you plan to prepare for your certification test?
