Dermatology Certified Nurse Practitioner
(DCNP) Exam Review Course 2020

2 1/2-Day Summer and Fall Courses

June 21st through June 23rd, 2020
October 9th through October 11th, 2020


The Center for Advanced Practice Dermatology (CAPD) has decided to adjust the educational format for the 2020 DCNP Review Course out of concern for the safety of our attendees, partners, and local communities due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We appreciate our colleagues’ concerns about airline travel, time away from work, and expenses associated with an on-site conference during these stressful months. Therefore, NPs who would like to attend the Summer 2020 DCNP Review Course, scheduled for June 21-23, will be able to complete the conference through a virtual broadcast. Attendees and faculty will join the broadcast in real-time to review presentations for each session and interact with the faculty for questions & answers. Live practice exam sessions will take place at the end of each day. In order to deliver a more effective program using this platform, we have made small adjustments to the agenda.

Many dermatology clinicians furloughed or laid off and would like to use their time to begin studying for the DCNP certification exam in order to validate their specialty knowledge and improve marketability for employment. If you or any other NP you know has been laid off and would like to prepare for the certification exam, we are happy to offer the course at no cost. Please contact us at or for more information.

Due to the high volume of requests, a second DCNP Review Course, mirroring the summer course will be held in the Fall of 2020. The course will be broadcast from Friday, October 9th through Sunday, October 11th for your convenience.

Over the coming weeks, we will continue to share updates on our website and through email. We urge you to register at your earliest convenience as spaces will be limited for the conferences. You will have access to pre-conference study materials and recommendations once registered. Online learning modules will be available beginning on April 5th. It is our hope that these changes will provide support to our NP colleagues trying to mitigate the impact of this current health crisis.


“Appreciate the content in the hand-out as well as your presentation. You and the DermNP team did an outstanding job organizing. This was an impressive and well-run course. Thank you for all of your time, attention and energy.”

“Great information. Your enthusiasm, organization, and energetic style continued throughout the day to fill the room. Thank you”

We are Grateful for the Support of our Media Partners.
