Med-Challenger ENP Case Study:
Drexel University ENP Program
This ENP education case study outlines how emergency nurse practitioner ENP programs can ultimately improve ENP training efficiency and performance outcomes with the adoption of online group knowledge assessment and performance tracking tools.
With the 2017 accreditation by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) of the Emergency Nurse Practitioner – Certified (ENP-C) designation, ENP’s became one of the now three recognized subspecialties granted by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Board (AANPCB).
ENP is now one of the three certifications administered by the prestigious AANP and startup ENP programs want to maintain the high standards of the organization.
Med-Challenger provides online group medical education platform services to clinical training programs, such as emergency nurse practitioner programs.
This case study describes the problems, solutions, and outcomes of Med-Challenger platform at Drexel University’s ENP Program.
Drexel University, a a private research university located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, maintains a stellar reputation in healthcare teaching and research.
Drexel’s College of Nursing and Health Professions ranked #2 in the country in 2017. Recently, Drexel added an ENP program to their offerings.
Dr. Theresa Campo, DNP, in charge of the program launch, was looking for teaching and assessment tools for Drexel’s new ENP program, to support students that would be taking the ENP certification exam at the end of the program.
Drexel wanted their startup ENP Post-Master’s certificate program to have a 100% matriculation rate, and a 100% certification rate for their graduates.
“I was looking for a method to not only test the student’s knowledge of various topics covered during the courses but also to prepare them mentally and physically for taking the board certification exam.”Dr. Theresa Campo, Drexel University ENP Program
David Beard, CEO of Med-Challenger, said, “Med-Challenger has a long history and relationship with the acute care professions, and our belief is that the ENP-C is a needed and critical certification. We began working on ENP training well before the AAENP finalized the certification requirements.”
Drexel put Med-Challenger ENP teaching content and student management to work in its 2018 cohort, a small number of students, but a standard-setting program.
After utilizing the Med-Challenger platform for a year, the students stated it proved very useful in preparing them for the certification exam.
The ENP candidate pass rate was 100%.
“Med-Challenger has definitely met expectations for the students – as well as the program overall.”Dr. Theresa Campo, Drexel University ENP Program
This case study was produced through voluntary client feedback after a full-year cohort education cycle using Med-Challenger. Med-Challenger has no proprietary or financial affiliation with Drexel University or anyone included in this case study.
