The 2019 NCCPA™ PANCE Content Blueprint is made up of 14 organ systems (ranked by percent of exam content) along with 105 subsections (within each organ system) and 482 diseases/disorders.
The layout is familiar and similar to previous versions of the Blueprint.
Some careful planning now will go a long way toward making your home special and convenient for you and your family.
Cabinet elevations are generally provided with your plans and, like the electrical plan, this is mainly a guide for estimating purposes.
Your builder may be able to help you with your site plan, a drawing that shows your building site and locates your home plan, building setbacks, utilities, etc.
If you are building on acreage, a septic plan and permit will be required.
An important advantage to choosing a PDF package is the ability to email your plans to builders and sub-trades and avoid printing up extra sets and driving all over town distributing the plans for bids, etc.
The CAD formats, while more expensive, are essential for having major changes to your house plan made locally — it's getting harder and harder to find designers who still draw by hand.
Cabinets are an area that is easy to customize and your builder, or his cabinet maker, will work with you early on in the process to ensure that the correct cabinets are specified.
Do not rely solely on the cabinet elevations that are provided! Assuming that you have your building site and you now have your plans in hand, you will be ready to find your builder and begin to assemble the additional elements you'll need to get your building permit.
