Graduate Pass Rates for National Board Exam
Following Graduation, and prior to beginning practice, all graduates must pass the National Board Exam.
The UND PA Program is proud to be oriented to the mission of serving rural and under served communities. To achieve this goal, the program accepts students from rural and underserved backgrounds with the understanding that they will return to their home areas for clinical practice. This is reflected in the first time pass rate. For over forty years, the Program has chosen to sacrifice a perfect pass rate on national board performance in return for meeting the mission of graduates returning to rural and underserved clinical practice.
The NCCPA (National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants) pass rate 5 year report compares the first-time test takers for UND to all PA Programs in the United States.
