    Our programs recently transitioned to year-round testing.    It hasn't been an entire year yet but the drop in applications is curious.  

    We have a short survey about the question:  Testing windows or year-round testing.

    The survey should take you less than 5 minutes to complete.   No identifying information will be collected unless you choose to provide it.   https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/G2HYNQP

    Results will be shared in aggregate. 

    I appreciate any feedback.

    Does anyone perform a survey of candidates who failed the certification exam? If so in what time frame do you send out the survey? What are some topics you cover in the survey?

    Thank you.

    Hello everyone,

    I wanted to share the link for our Position Statement on the Value of Hospice and Palliative Certification. This was a joint endeavor with our affiliate organizations, the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association (HPNA) and the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Foundation (HPNF).


    Thank you.
