Preparing for Practice

****I will be taking the adult gero primary care NP certification through the AANP.***** My state is PA

Address the specific steps you will do to sit for the national certification exam, including any forms or documents you will need to obtain. What are the fees of the certifying body?

Then comment on the national provider identifier (NPI) and the DEA number. Include why you need them, the fees, and when you should obtain them.

Identify the prescription drug monitoring program in your state, addressing how this might advocate for the NP and patients in advance of prescribing.

Moving forward, after becoming certified, what do you need to do to recertify and how often?
