Is APEX Live designed to help students pass the NCE?

We designed APEX Live to help CRNAs pass the CPC Assessment. For this reason, we do not recommend that students use APEX Live as their only review course when preparing for the National Certification Exam.

Instead, APEX Live is best used as a supplement to your board-prep plan. 


How can APEX Live help?

APEX Live can provide supplemental value for students who want to layer in a live experience to their board prep plan.

  • APEX Live is taught through a series of crisis management case studies. This approach will help you connect the dots, so that you'll have an easier time answering higher-order questions on the NCE.
  • You'll get a different perspective from your other review courses.
  • You won't find our world-class instructors anywhere else! Sass Elisha EdD, CRNA, FAAN is the co-editor of Nagelhout's Nurse Anesthesia textbook, and Jeremy Heiner EdD, CRNA is a chapter author. Additionally, Jeremy has served on the NBCRNA SEE item writing committee.
  • The clinical focus of the course content will give you a head start when you begin clinical practice.
  • Our 20-hour curriculum is spread out over four days (5 hrs each day).


How does the NCE differ from the CPCA?

While there’s a lot of overlap between these exams, the content outline for the CPCA is narrower in scope. It includes the four core domains of nurse anesthesia practice:

  1. Advanced airway management
  2. Human physiology & pathophysiology
  3. Clinical pharmacology
  4. Anesthesia equipment & technology

Again, APEX Live only covers the content on the CPCA content outline, so there are some NCE topics that we will not cover. Examples include (but are not limited to) regional anesthesia, pediatrics, obstetrics, chemistry, and physics, to name a few. These links will help you compare both content outlines:
