  1. I just do not understand all the hate? It's not like the exam is that difficult and frankly if you cannot pass such a basic/general exam then I would be concerned as to the quality of care you are providing. I'm not standing up for every decision that NCCPA has ever made. I am simply stating that I really do not see anything wrong with taking a recert exam periodically. The fact that people are so up in arms over the whole topic is actually a little concerning to me. So let's say Joe Somebody gets out of PA school and decides he is going to go to conferences and rack up CME but really not pay attention or study to stay up to date on topics. He will still be allowed to practice medicine. Now say you get sick one day and go to an urgent care and you are going to be evaluated and treated by this same person. Would you feel comfortable and think you are getting good quality care? I'm not trying to "diss" anyone and I am not taking up for NCCPA. Could the current setup be reworked? Sure! All I am saying is that I do not mind a periodic exam to make sure current practicing PA's stay up to date on topics. If that makes me less "humble", "superficial", "unintelligible" or whatever else you want to call it then so be it. I take pride in being a PA and knowing that I am tested on my competency to provide good quality care. Again, I mean no disrespect to anyone in this forum. We are all fellow PA's with differing opinions so take it for what it is worth.
  2. I'm sorry but I disagree with those stating the PANRE is not useful and comparing the PA profession with NP's. Have you guys not seen the difference in PA's vs NP's? Now I agree there are some bad PA's and good NP's but come on. I for one like to think of my profession as one of integrity. If you are so against a generalist exam and would prefer an orthopedist exam then CHOOSE THE ORTHO EXAM for PANRE. Does the generalist exam help with generalist quality of care? Well of course it does! Will the ortho exam help with ortho quality of care? Well of course! I for one like holding myself and my profession to a higher standard! Of course the re-certification is time consuming and stressful; however, the end result is a title I can be proud of. If studying for my boards only helps one patient then that's enough for it to count! If you are so against being held to a higher standard than a run of the mill NP then you chose the wrong profession. I enjoy the flexibility of being a PA and being able to work in ortho today then derm tomorrow if I so choose. Having said that, I need to at least have a good grasp on medicine as a whole to be able to do so. I feel our re-certification process allows for that. I just think people need to stop and think before complaining about something that really is beneficial to them and their chosen profession. I'm sure I'll catch a lot of hate for this but oh well. This is what makes our profession shine above the others. If you do not agree then you need another profession. Good luck to all with their boards!

I used this course and DOMINATED the PANRE so it is a great study tool. Let me know if interested or would like to make an offer.
  4. I just took the PANRE and used kaplan q bank. I found these questions to be more difficult than the actual exam for the most part. I found them to be set up similar to exam questions as well and am pretty sure I saw a few of the exact same questions from kaplan on the exam.
