    They must be at least 1/2 as good as an MD.

    See article:

    THE AMERICAN BOARD OF COMPREHENSIVE CARE (ABCC)
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    FIFTY PERCENT OF CANDIDATES PASS FIRST CERTIFICATION EXAM
    IN COMPREHENSIVE CARE FOR DOCTORS OF NURSING PRACTICE
    NEW YORK, NY (January 30, 2009) -- The American Board of Comprehensive Care (ABCC)
    announced today that fifty percent of the candidates passed the first certification exam in
    comprehensive care and will be designated as Diplomates in Comprehensive Care by the ABCC,
    the certifying body established by the Council for the Advancement of Comprehensive Care
    (CACC). The exam was developed for ABCC by the National Board of Medical Examiners
    (NBME) for graduates of Doctor of Nursing Practice degree programs.
    “This is an outstanding result for first-time candidates taking a new exam,” said Richard A.
    Cooper, MD, Professor of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and
    CACC member. “Successful certification provides evidence to the public that Doctor of Nursing
    Practice clinicians can meet the needs of patients seeking comprehensive care.”
    The ABCC exam was comparable in content, similar in format and measured the same set of
    competencies and applied similar performance standards as Step 3 of the United States Medical
    Licensing Examination, which is administered to physicians as one component of qualifying for
    licensure.
    The next certification exam is scheduled for October 2009.
    ABOUT ABCC
    The Council for the Advancement of Comprehensive Care (CACC) was established in 2000 to
    further the development of standard clinical competencies for graduates of Doctor of Nursing
    Practice (DNP) programs. Council membership is comprised of nurses, physicians, health care
    organization representatives and health and public policy experts. In order to distinguish DNP
    graduates who have achieved a high level of competence in comprehensive care, CACC
    contracted with the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) to develop a certification
    examination that will validate the advanced clinical competency of these graduates. CACC
    established the American Board of Comprehensive Care (ABCC) as the certifying body.
