Mercer PA Program announces 100% PANCE Pass Rate


The Mercer University Physician Assistant Program is pleased to announce the 2016 graduating class achieved a 100% first time test taker pass rate on the Physician Assistant National Certification Examination (PANCE). The national first time test taker pass rate is typically around 94%.

The PA Program attributes the success of the graduating class to the development of the Mercer 100% program. Mercer 100% is an innovative teaching strategy designed to prepare students for the certification exam and allows for early identification of potentially “at-risk” students. 

The PA Program continues to enhance Mercer 100% curriculum and anticipates the graduating class of 2017 will uphold the high standards set by the 2016 graduates.
