Dermatology Nurse Practitioner Certification
Certification Review Course

Live 2 1/2 Day Course | June 21st through June 23rd, 2020
Broadmoor Hotel, Colorado Springs, CO


PLEASE NOTE: Registration for the DCNP live review course includes all online pre-conference study modules and practice questions. This course will be the ONLY course offered in 2020.

This live intensive certification review course will immerse dermatology NPs in a review of comprehensive knowledge of complex, acute and chronic skin diseases along with evidence-based therapeutics that are tested on the Dermatology Nurse Practitioner Certification Exam, the only nationally recognized certification since in 2008. This course will enable attendees to self-assess and learn knowledge concepts in preparation for the examination as well as understand the of the test format to reduce test anxiety.

Certification is critical for validating that a nurse practitioner specializing in dermatology has acquired a core body of knowledge and adheres to the highest nursing standards of care and scope of practice in dermatology. The DCNP credential validates proficiency and confers recognition by colleagues, employers, insurers, and the public. Since the majority of dermatology NPs are educated informally through on-the-job training, their curriculum has been variable.

Following CAPD’s inaugural 2019 DCNP Live Review Course in Asheville, NC, there were a record number of dermatology nurse practitioner candidates who sat for the DCNP examination. Pass rates for those who took the exam following the review course in Asheville increased from mid – 60% to 82%.
