    I heard there was going to be some sort to change, but never could figure out what. I have a friend taking it in a months time and I'm anxious to hear what she says.

    I just took it May 23, there were a ton of questions about evidenced base practice, HIPPA, nursing research. I was expecting more clinical questions, but those were few and far between. BTW I passed.

    Just curious on what kind of EBP questions and HIPAA ones they had. The AMSN had a ton more clinical and few of the others you mentioned. Mine did anyway.

    Congrats lotus32 on passing your exam. Were the questions similar to the practice questions on the ANCC website. Also what book did you use to study? I am thinking about using the new Lippincott medical-surgical review book, but the evidence based practice section is only a few pages. Again, congrats on your accomplishment.
