What are the AACN exams?

Seeking certification in a critical care specialty area? The AACN (American Association of Critical Care Nurses) Certification Corporation offers specialty, subspecialty and advanced practice exams for candidates seeking certification to meet specialized needs. Exactly what can you expect with the AACN certification exams?

The AACN exams were created to protect healthcare consumers by validating the knowledge of nurses who care for and/or influence the care delivered to the acutely and critically ill. Eligibility requirements to sit for an AACN exam are dependent on the area of certification. All areas require an unencumbered RN or APRN license. Specialty and subspecialty areas require a minimum number of hours of clinical practice experience. Completion of a graduate level advanced practice program is required for the advanced practice exams. All eligibility requirements must be verified before an exam can be scheduled.

All AACN exams are conducted in cooperation with Applied Measurement Professionals, Inc., a PSI business. The exams are computer-based, but a paper-pencil test is available at certain locations. While the length of the exam and the number of questions is dependent upon the certification area, the range is 2 hours to 3 ½ hours for 90 to 175 multiple-choice items. Twenty-five of the questions do not count toward the score as they are used to gather statistical data on item performance for future exams. Specific content outlines for each specialty area of certification are available at the AACN website at

All exams are criterion referenced. Computer-based test results are presented on-site at the completion of testing. Paper-pencil exam results will be mailed 2 – 4 weeks following testing.
