The Certified Professional in Patient SafetyTM credential (CPPS) is earned by professionals who have demonstrated a high level of proficiency in the core standards of patient safety. This credential is awarded through a thorough examination covering five patient safety domains:
- Patient Safety Risks and Solutions
- Measuring and Improving Performance
- Systems Thinking and Design / Human Factors
More than 3,000 professionals have earned the CPPS credential, representing all 50 US states and 20 countries.
As part of regular exam maintenance, the Certification Board for Professionals in Patient Safety (CBPPS) released a revised exam on November 1, 2019. All exams going forward will be based on the revised content outline. The revised content outline can be viewed online. Candidates testing from November 1 – 15, 2019 will experience delayed scoring, followed by a testing blackout from November 16 - December 16. During this time responses from candidates to examination items will be reviewed, and CBPPS will reapprove the passing point for the examination. This process is a best practice for professional credentialing programs and helps maintain the integrity of the exam. We appreciate your understanding.
