100% PANCE pass rate for the second year in a row

Congratulations to the Wake Forest PA Class of 2015, all of whom passed the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination (PANCE) on their first attempt! This is the second year in a row that Wake Forest PA Program graduates have achieved a 100% first-time test-taker pass rate. According to the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA), which administers the boards, the pass rate nationally for first-time test takers has averaged 94% for the past five years.

The Wake Forest PA Class of 2015 results reflect the hard work of the class as well as multiple contributions of faculty and staff in the Department of Physician Assistant Studies. Achievement of the 100% pass rate also coincides with continued development and expansion of the Office of Academic Excellence in PA Studies. This innovative program translates adult learning theory into programmable interventions to analyze student learning styles, improve test-taking skills, and provide other types of academic support.
