Just took the ANCC and passed. I was really disappointed with their application process and the time it took to get a test date!! Horrible customer service! The exam was exactly like I read in the forums. No way to really study for the test at all. Just diversify everything possible like ethics and theory and research. I was so frustrated before the test I applied to AANP and heard very quickly. Hence I'm taking their exam next week. I'm looking forward to see their exam style versus ANCC. I wish I had only applied to one but my patience was short and I didn't like what I was reading about the ANCC. Also one must consider that recertification should be a smooth process. In 5 years if ANCC gives me the run around I have another option!! I'm glad I passed it though and wish everyone luck who is sitting for that exam. Be optimistic with positive thoughts!
