About the PRPE (Professional Role Performance Examination)


Focuses on the competencies related to the roles of provider of care, leader, member of profession, and collaborator; clinical decision making and relating with others are integrated throughout the examination. To test the knowledge and skills in the designated dimensions of professional practice, this examination uses videotaped simulations that depict clinical problems and ethical dilemmas the professional nurse is likely to encounter in practice. Student must assume the role of the BSN portrayed on the videotape and respond to the situation presented by answering a series of critical elements.
The Member of Profession exam tests the studentís ability to plan and engage in a professional activity, prepare a scholarly paper, and participate in a group discussion. Students complete most dimension requirements in their home communities prior to scheduling the remaining video-simulation.
