For Nurse Practitioner Faculty

APEA provides a roadmap for success by providing a variety of exams, learning resources, and remediation tools to fit the needs of both students and faculty. Check out our products to find the ideal resources for your program and curriculum.



APEA offers three secure FNP and AGNP exam databases; the 3P Exam, Pre-Predictor Exam, and Predictor Exam. Each uses randomized, multiple choice questions tested and analyzed for reliability, validity, and predictability.

  • The 3P Exam tests in Pharmacotherapeutics, Pathophysiology, and Physical Assessment. A passing score of 67% or greater indicates clinical readiness.
  • The Peds Competency Exam tests competency in Pediatrics. A passing score of 61% or greater indicates pediatric readiness.
  • The Pre-Predictor Exam is administered at the beginning of the last semester, allowing students to remediate weaknesses in preparation for the University Predictor.
  • The University Predictor Exam is administered at the end of the last semester as preparation for the certification exam. A score of 70% or greater predicts success. APEA’s University Predictor Exam is considered a National Standardized Comprehensive Exit Exam and can be used as a tool for student and curriculum evaluation.
  • The Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Predictor Exam is a high-stakes exam designed to assess a student’s pediatric knowledge. It can be used as an exit exam to determine a PNP student’s likelihood of success on the pediatric primary care certification exam. A score of 70% or greater predicts a high likelihood of success on the certification exam.
