The ANCC Pediatric Primary Care Nurse Practitioner board certification (PPCNP-BC) examination is a competency-based examination that provides a valid and reliable assessment of the entry-level clinical knowledge and skills of nurse practitioners. There are 200 questions on the examination. Of these, 175 questions are scored and 25 are pretest questions that are unscored.

Pocket Prep’s PPCNP-BC practice test app is a powerful exam simulator that allows you to create customized practice tests with detailed answer explanations for every question. View your results and exam history with just a few taps. Study anywhere at any time without Internet.

The app utilizes the “spacing effect” to enhance your learning capability. You’ll space out your studying into shorter, more productive study sessions which allow your brain to retain more information. Simply tell the app how many questions you want to take, enable the timer, and filter exam content to create the perfect study experience.
