Do I have to complete the test in one sitting?
No. You may leave it and return to it later. You will have access to the test/questions for one year from the date of purchase.
Can I use outside resources as I take the exam?
You may decide to refer to outside resources as needed.
How can I review the questions after I’ve completed the test?
After you either earn the CE or use up your three test attempts, you will have access to all the questions in the pool. You can access these through the Menu icon under Review. Here you will see the questions broken down according to:
- Content domain (the four core areas of anesthesia knowledge)
- Answered versus Unanswered
- Correct versus Incorrect.
You can quiz yourself by clicking on the arrow to the right of any of those category rows.
Why can’t I review my test question rationales and answers after I completed my test?
Per CE rules, you will either need to achieve an 80% score on your test or complete 3 attempts to view question rationales and answers.
How can I view my test feedback?
When you have completed the CE element or the third attempt, you will have access to the test feedback. You can access this from the Menu icon by selecting My Tests. You can see a record of each test attempt on this screen. Clicking the green “Feedback” button any of these attempts will take you to a score breakdown page that contains all of the questions on that attempt. You can click the questions to review the answers and rationale.
Can I take CPCE Practice with my friends or colleagues?
No. It is to be done by one individual rather than a team. The CPCE Practice is the intellectual property of the NBCRNA. Unauthorized distribution of any aspect of the CPCE Practice, including without limitation, the CPCE Practice questions, answers to questions, and rationales is strictly prohibited.
How is my CE reported?
NBCRNA will report CE completions to the AANA on a monthly basis.
What happens if I don’t achieve an 80% score on the CPCE Practice in three attempts?
You will still have access to the questions for one year after purchase and can self-report this activity for 1 Class B credit for every 60 minutes you were engaged in the exam. This would be reported for Class B credit under the Non-Prior Approved/Non-Assessed CE category.
What is your refund policy?
CPCE Practice is nonrefundable.
Do you keep my credit card information?
No. We use Stripe to process payments and no credit card information is stored.
