Self-Assessment Exams

Self Assessment Exams (SAE) are learning tools available as web-based tests. They serve as practice tools to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of a candidate who is interested in the certification and re-certification process in hospice and palliative care nursing.

The Self-Assessment Exams are accessed on the PSI/Applied Measurement Professionals web site, You may need to create an account at no cost in the PSI/AMP E-Store to purchase the SAE.  To link directly to the SAE overviews, click on any of the SAE titles above.

HPNF is indebted to HPCC for establishing a fundraising program with its testing company, PSI/Applied Measurement Professionals, regarding the SAE. A portion of the cost is donated to the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Foundation for many of the tests that are purchased. Thank you for your generosity!

The SAE can be used as one of several mechanisms to assist you in your studies.
