  • Gives those working in patient safety a means to demonstrate their proficiency and skill in the discipline.
  • Provides a way for employers to validate a potential candidate’s patient safety knowledge and skill base, critical competencies for today’s health care environment.

The CPPS credential establishes patient safety competency standards and elevates the professional stature of health care professionals who meet knowledge requirements in safety science, human factors engineering, and the practice of safe care. Certification requires a combination of education and experience, as well as successful completion of the evidence-based certification exam.

The CPPS examination is administered by the Certification Board for Professionals in Patient Safety (CBPPS). CBPPS was formed to oversee a rigorous and comprehensive credentialing process that attests to patient safety competencies and expertise. The board’s chief responsibility is the development and administration of an evidence-based examination that provides candidates with a process by which they can demonstrate their competency in patient safety science and application.

Candidates for the CPPS credential are those who include patient safety practices as an integral component of current or future professional responsibilities. In addition, candidates must possess academic and professional experience at one of the following levels: • Baccalaureate degree or higher plus 3 years of experience (includes time spent in clinical rotations and residency programs) in a health care setting or with a provider of services to the health care industry • Associate degree or equivalent plus 5 years of experience (includes time spent in clinical rotations) in a health care setting or with a provider of services to the health care industry.

The fee is $295 for members of the American Society for Professionals in Patient Safety, $320 for organizational members of the Stand Up for Patient Safety Program, and $400 for nonmembers. International candidates, please add $100 (U.S. dollars) for international examination fee.

Candidates are tested on five core patient safety domains: Culture, Leadership, Patient Safety Risks & Solutions, Measuring & Improving Performance, and Systems Thinking & Design/Human Factors. The vast majority of questions test application and analysis, while a small percentage test for recall.

Because questions that address application and analysis (these are the vast majority of questions) have different weighting scores as compared with rote questions, the formula for passing does not allow for us to post a singular passing grade on the exam. On a scale-scored basis (as alluded to above), the passing score is typically in the range of 70%.

If you test on computer, you receive a score report indicating pass/fail status at the conclusion of the test session. If you take a paper-and-pencil examination, your score report is mailed from our testing center, AMP approximately 6-8 weeks after the test date. For those who pass the examination, CBPPS recognizes certified status with a mailed certificate and a certification pin.

Yes, candidates are able to retake the examination provided they wait 30 days between attempts. Each attempt requires an application and full examination fee
