I really really need some advice regarding the AANP FNP exam.
I graduated last May from my FNP program. I had planned to take the exam right away but family issues occurred (my MIL was diagnosed w terminal cancer). With my already hectic life , I wasn't able to dedicate as much time or study the way I normally do. I decided to take the AANP even though my program recommended the AANC, bc i thought i could hardly get through clinical material, much less theory etc.. but now im in total panic bc everyone on this site seems to think the AANP was harder?
My problem is there are too many distractions, and I can't focus. I have been studying on and off which is worse because I notice I tend to forget the stuff I had studied before. Furthermore, since I've been out of school for 11 months I have forgotten some basic material ex labs and dx tests, a lot of the meds etc.
I have listened to the Fitzgerald CDs once but very spaced out during the past few months.
I just got the Leik book and some exams on exam edge.
I also bought the Adult and Family Nurse Practitioner Certification Exam: Review Questions and Strategies book (which I keep scoring 50-62 on).
I'm very worried bc I keep scoring so low on the questions in that book, in addition I score bw 440 - 590 on the AANP exams from exam edge (500 is passing).
I've passed 3/10.
I have to take this exam next Wednesday (in 5 days). Do I have a chance?
With such limited time -is it best to focus on :
1. review Fitzgerald?
2. Do AANP questions from exam edge and read rationales
3. Make sure I read the Leik book?
I will not have time for all if it.
And I have NO idea what the actual exam is more similar to? Fitzgerald material ? Exam edge ? Or the Leik book? This is what I really NEED to know. U can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please please HELP asap -if u have taken this exam, ESP if u recently 2013 took it? I can not Fail it w the other stuff that's going on w family.
Thank you soooo much.
