Nursing Alumni Maintain Perfect Pass Rate

The winter graduating class of Belmont University’s master’s program for Family Nurse Practitioners (FNP) and two post-MSN certificate students have achieved a 100 percent first time pass rate on the nursing certification examination for the 10th consecutive year.

The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) administers the the advanced practice nursing examination for family nurse practitioners. More than a quarter million nurses have been certified by ANCC since 1990, and over 80,000 advanced practice nurses are currently certified by ANCC. ANCC certification is accepted by governing boards throughout the United States as well as insurers and the military. The program validates nurses’ skills, knowledge and abilities and empowers nurses within their professional sphere while contributing to better patient outcomes.
