TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Florida A&M University says all of the School of Nursing May 2019 Master’s Graduates passed their required Certification Exam.

According to University officials, the School of Nursing received the news from the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Board last week.

The class is made up of five graduate students who are now certified to be nurse practitioners.

FAMU says this unprecedented 100 percent pass rate helps establish the FAMU School of Nursing as a top-tier provider of nursing practitioners.

ANP Certification Board’s nurse practitioner certification provides a valid and reliable program for nurse practitioners to recognize their education, knowledge and professional expertise.

Officials say nurse practitioners can prescribe medicine and run their own clinics without a doctor’s supervision.
