The program was developed for Neonatal or Women's Health Care
The Alternate Certification Program requirements are rigorous. Candidates must complete educational requirements that consist of a series of physical assessment and pathophysiology tests followed by the Continuing Competency Assessment (CCA) and corresponding CE modules determined by the CCA educational plan. Every segment of the program has an online test that must be passed before progressing to the next step. All of the educational tests must be completed successfully before the APRN will be eligible to sit for their NCC national board certification exam, which is the final step in the ACP program.
This comprehensive and evaluative program will be utilized to demonstrate education equivalency to current eligibility requirements for certification for graduate prepared APRNs.
