The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued status to the Saint Francis University Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Saint Francis University. Accreditation-Continued is an accreditation status granted when a currently accredited program is in compliance with the ARC-PA Standards.
Accreditation remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards. The approximate date for the next validation review of the program by the ARC-PA will be September 2026. The review date is contingent upon continued compliance with the Accreditation Standards and ARC-PA policy.
The 2020 graduating class of the Master of Physician Assistant Science Program achieved an 100% first-time taker pass rate. The Program's first-time taker pass-rate on the Physician Assistant National Certification Exam (PANCE) for the past five years is 98% compared to the national average of 96%. Take a look at our last five years’ of performance on the PANCE. Please feel free to also take a look at the
NCCPA First-Time PANCE rates for the most recent graduating classes, as reported by the NCCPA.
In addition, the Board Pass Rates Chart graphs the pass rate of first-time takers for the NCCPA exam at Saint Francis University against the national average since 2010:
