Physician assistant program celebrates 100 percent pass rate

Union College’s 25 physician assistant graduates recently took the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination (PANCE). The attempt was met with total success, allowing the class to rise above the national pass rate.

 “We are very proud of their accomplishments,” said Mike Huckabee, Union College’s PA program director.  “All graduates from the class of 2009 passed the PANCE on their first try.”

The 360-question exam, administered during a six-hour period, gauges basic medical and surgical knowledge. Passing the PANCE is a national requirement to become a certified physician assistant.

“This was an excellent group of graduates who worked hard to be successful,” said Huckabee.  “This distinction is a fitting tribute to their diligence and effort.”
Huckabee attributes much of the class’ success to the support and individual attention Union’s PA faculty provide as well as the careful instruction that more than 70 associated physicians in the Lincoln area contribute.

“This accomplishment shows the hand of God in so many ways,” said Huckabee. “He continues to bless Union College with exceptional students who excel on our campus.”
