You have just completed an arduous course of study which has demanded a lot of sacrifices: study, financial cost, neglected friendships, and delayed marriage plans. The initial goal was just to graduate; now you are required to take a certification examination to determine if all of your hard work was fruitful. When the large envelope arrives with your certification from the NCCPA you are then ready to start. Correct? No! Now you will now need to make more decisions that determine your future. And these decisions are just as complex as your clinical training.
