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 10 countries.
As part of regular
exam maintenance, the Certification Board for Professionals in Patient Safety (CBPPS) will be releasing a revised exam on November 1, 2019.
All exams administered after October 31, 2019 will be based on the revised
content outline. Both the current and revised content
outlines can be viewed online. Candidates testing from November 1 – 16, 2019 will
experience delayed scoring as our testing partner, PSI, reviews responses and
reapproves the passing point of the exam. This process is a best practice for
professional credentialing programs and helps maintain the integrity of the
exam. We appreciate your understanding. If you have questions, please reach out
