The DCNP Practice to Pass program will offer dermatology NPs exam preparation opportunities leading all the way up to the day you sit for your certification exam. The interactive DCNP Practice to Pass program on September 12th will provide focused test-taking skills through technique and modeling. The following three months will then provide NPs with repeated online practice question sessions to be taken at your own pace and convenience.
