Licensure and Certification

Graduates will be eligible to sit for the national certification examination through the National Commission on the Certification of Physician Assistants.  Once nationally certified, graduates of the PA program will be eligible to apply to the Arkansas State Medical Board or another state board for a license to practice in the state.  Successful completion of the program does not itself ensure certification and/or licensure. It is the student’s responsibility to be familiar with licensure and certification requirements.
