Dr. Blackwell Participates in 2023 ANCC AGACNP Board Certification Item Writing Retreat

Filed under: Nursing Education and Profession — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 01:05

Dr. Blackwell spent several days in Arlington, Virginia last week completing work related to his appointment to the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AGACNP)Board Certification Examination Item Writing Panel. The retreat took place at Convene in the Pentagon City neighborhood and included item writing panels for all 17 of ANCC’s Board-Certification specialty exams.

Participating with Dr. Blackwell were clinicians and Faculty from Vanderbilt, UCF (Blackwell), Virginia, Emory, and NY Touro University. The panelists are pictured below. The items written by the panel will now be reviewed by ANCC’s psychometrics experts and the AGACNP Content Expert Panel before being finalized for placement on the AGACNP exam as “Pretest Items.” Items that score well statistically during this phase are eventually added to the AGACNP Board Certification Examination and/or the exam’s test bank.
