pance pass rates
- Graduates of an accredited Physician Assistant program must pass the Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam (PANCE) before becoming a PA-C. This certification is required for licensure in all states.
- The exam is developed jointly by the National Board of Medical Examiners and the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA).
- The report will be available once the first cohort completes the exam.
- Our Texas-based, Hybrid PA Program does not guarantee third-party certification or licensure. Outside agencies control the requirements for taking and passing certification/licensing exams and are subject to change without notice to Franklin Pierce University.
The ARC-PA has granted Accreditation-Provisional status to the Franklin Pierce University Master of Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS) Hybrid Program -- Round Rock, TX Campus sponsored by Franklin Pierce University.
Accreditation-Provisional is an accreditation status granted when the plans and resource allocation, if fully implemented as planned, of a proposed program that has not yet enrolled students appear to demonstrate the program’s ability to meet the ARC-PA Standards or when a program holding Accreditation-Provisional status appears to demonstrate continued progress in complying with the Standards as it prepares for the graduation of the first class (cohort) of students.
Accreditation-Provisional does not ensure any subsequent accreditation status. It is limited to no more than five years from matriculation of the first class.
