    Thank you everyone for sharing your experiences and supporting those of us in preparation for certification. I was wondering if any one had to take the NP HESI prior to graduation. We are taking ours in November. I am hoping to take the AANP cert exam soon after. I'm wondering if it is a good trial run of the actual exam. If anyone took the NP Hesi prior to certification, I would appreciate your thoughts.
    Thank you so much and congrats to those that passed and good luck to those preparing.

    Not the OP, but I did both too and have never quite figured out how to swing it .

    I use my state designation for rx etc, i.e. APRN. My resume reads "APRNlife, MSN, FNP-C, APRN-BC."

    Would like to see a consolidation between the two at some point in the future. Each was a very different exam with unique content, and a single exam combining elements of both would be a good challenge. Plus I want to buck the nursing paradigm and aim for as few letters as possible after my name!
