Is there any specific wording for including the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination on my resume/CV before I sit for the exam in January 2022? I couldn't find anything specific online but found a couple of blog posts that recommended phrasing as:
"NCCPA Board Eligible"
Put "anticipated" before your examination date if you are registered for the exam but have not taken it yet
Put "pending" before your examination date if you have taken the exam and are awaiting results
On my current CV, I have: NCCPA Board Eligible (Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination) Anticipated January 2022
Any guidance or advice on this topic is appreciated! I would hate to word incorrectly and have it hurt my job search. Thank you!
I am sure there are already several similar topics already on here, but I am struggling to find them. I am wondering if anyone has compiled a list of schools that do or do not accept online anatomy and physiology courses if taken during quarantine. I have checked the websites of several schools that make no statements on how their prereq requirements have been altered in response to the pandemic. If anyone has any recommendations I would be very grateful.
So my particular PA school uses the PACKRAT to determine if students are ready to take the PANCE or not at the end of clinical year (this is new and never counted like this before). This year's most recent PACKRAT version national average is apparently a 167, 20 points higher than the last 3 averages on PAEA's website and 40 points higher than last years national average of 128 (according to my PA school). They have informed us that if we do not get within the 2 point standard deviation, they will not allow us to take the PANCE until we reach an adequate grade on the PACKRAT. Can they legally do this?
According to PAEA, the PACRAT can be done open book so these scores are skewed and shouldn't count for my class.
There is nothing in our program handbook about the PACKRAT being a requirement for graduation.
