Abstract:

Graduate APN faculty use Standardized Testing to assess students’ potential for certification examination success, to identify concepts needing remediation, and to identify strengths and weaknesses within the APN curriculum. In preliminary research, an APN score of 700 or above was found to be 99.5% predictive of certification success.
