The Center for Advanced Practice Dermatology (CAPD) has adjusted the educational format of our 2020 DCNP Review Courses, beginning with our 2020 Summer course, out of concern for the safety of our attendees, partners, and local communities during 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 this stressful time.

Attendees will join expert faculty during the broadcast in real-time to review presentations for each session and interact for questions & answers. Live practice exam sessions take place at the end of each day, and have become one of the most valued aspects of this course.

Following the 2019 DCNP Review Course:

  • A record number of dermatology nurse practitioner candidates sat for the DCNP exam.
  • Pass rates increased from 62% to 82% for those that took the DCNP exam immediately following the review course.

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 Fall Conference. Upon registration, you will have access to pre-conference study materials and recommendations, as well as live Q & A sessions.  During the webinar, PowerPoint presentations will also be available for download.

We have heard from many dermatology clinicians that have been furloughed or laid off and would like to take advantage of this opportunity to begin studying for the DCNP certification exam.  If you, or another NP that you know, are in this situation, we are committed to supporting you in your efforts to validate your specialty knowledge and improve your marketability for employment.  CAPD is pleased to offer you our DNCP course FREE OF CHARGE.  You can reach us at for more information.
