100% Pass Rate for New AG-ACNPs

When a new adult/gerontology acute care nurse practitioner exam was pilot-tested among students at 10 U.S. nursing schools, the Hopkins nurses—every single one who took the exam—passed with flying colors.  This makes them the first certified AG-ACNPs in Maryland and among the first 82 in the United States.

“I am so proud of them,” says associate professor Julie Stanik-Hutt, PhD, ACNP, CCNS, FAAN, who revealed the exam results to students at their graduation ceremony in December. “That was followed by screaming, jumping around, hugging, and lots and lots of applause,” she says.
