AANP FNP Certification Exam ---urgent HELP needed pleaseeeee - Page 2Register Today!
- Aug 27 by verypatientWell don't be scared about the new changes. I took mine July 31 and had no pictures or none of that. So I don't really know...
- Sep 10 by BarinbassI just finished in August and finally scheduled myself to take my test. I bought Fitzgerald's 3rd Edition which I found very helpful and was carrying it with me everywhere I went to go over the chapters I did poorly on on the Hesi Exit exam my school made us take. My school also required us buy a Review Course of our choice. I bought Fitgerald's CDs with workbook and listened to them through once while on a trip in the car and them did them with the workbook and online graphics. I am just finishing some of the other online material she has available. I bought the Leik book recently, but it is much bigger book than I had thought. It does have practice tests in them. I also have the huge book of nothing but questions by Hollier. I did poorly on the first test I took in that book but scored 74% on the AANP practice exam. I bought that exam because I wanted to see ow their tests looked, but the questions were those that had been removed from past tests so i wonder if the material was accurate. I think I will focus on the practice tests now and the Leik Book and then thumb through many Fitz workbook and read over my highlighted materials. I am registering to take both exams to have a back up in case I do not pass the AANP which I will take in two weeks. I am scared and do not do well on tests like this. My Hesi score was pitiful! Any help on where to go from here to make sure I pass the first time would be appreciated!! BY the way Fitgerald said to know how to read an EKG and mentioned to know ow to read a genpgram and she did mention pictures. I will be taking the Adult-Gero exam which is new, so it may have pictures I hope not though. AANP gives the nornal labs on the test and ANCC does not!
I suggest listening to Fitzgerald's CDs in all spare time such as when driving in the car etc. Do it with the workbook as it is like a thorough class, and I feel that whatever she stresses is very important to know. It seems that about 66% or so is required to pass. Anyone know what what we should be scoring on these practice tests to pass the certification exams? Congrats to all those who passed!!
- Sep 10 by BarinbassWhich test did you take? AANP or ANCC and which track?
- Sep 10 by verypatientTook both AANP and ANCC. For the AANP leik will help you. Once you read the book, note the exam tips. Fitzgerald did not help a bit. I had the 2007 version of leik and it seemed that the questions were taken from her notes! For the ANCC exam , I bought the certification review
Course book for the FNP and passed both!
- Sep 12 by CSThelenI passed ANCC FNP exam this August, which did have pics and did have multiple multiples. I also had very many family distractions & crises during those weeks of study. The only way I could study was to dedicate hours by myself at an academic library reading room, bringing my snacks, books, etc. NO COMPUTER or SMART PHONE, even though it would have been occasionally helpful to look something up, it would also be too distracting, leading me to look too in-depth on topics, etc.
I had graduated in May. I used the 3d edition Fitzgerald book, which I found very good. I also took the Fitzgerald F2F course, plus did the Fitzgerald post-weekend online modules, all were very good. I really intend to use those materials in practice, they are so helpfully concise, well-written, and up to date. I also bought the Hollier book, but it made me so mad with its various errors and out of date info (out of date mainly due to peds items, e.g., vaccinations), that I chucked Hollier after a short while.
Best wishes on your studies, you just have to clear away the distractions, as demanding as they may be, and appear to be self-centered, at least for this little while.
- Oct 2 by BarinbassI took and passed the AANP exam last wed, Sept 25. Woo hoo!! Glad that is over, but I studied my rear off! Hard to figure out what to do now with nothing to study.
