What is the PANCE Exam?

The Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam (PANCE) is a certification exam taken by a physician assistant before he or she can be licensed in the U.S. for the first time after graduating from an accredited program. The exam consists of 300 multiple-choice questions delivered in five 60-minute, 60-question blocks. The tests are computer-based and consist of practical medical and surgical questions. PANCE exams are administered by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA).
