Practice Exams

Practice exams for Hospice and Palliative Credentialing Center certification exams 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 recertification process in hospice and palliative care nursing.

The first step to achieving certification is to take a practice exam to gauge your strengths and weaknesses. These web-based tests enable candidates to better understand areas of focus that will help them excel on the certification exam. 

These practice exams are accessed on the PSI/Applied Measurement Professionals website at You may need to create an account at no cost in the PSI/AMP E-Store to purchase the exam. All practice exams are $35 unless otherwise marked, and all proceeds benefit the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Foundation.  To link directly to the practice exam overviews, click on any of the titles below.
