Thank you so much! Do you remember how you scored on board vitals? My scores are all over the place, mostly 60's-low 80's. Thank you again for your feedback.
For those of you saying no one is talking about ANCC exam recently - not sure how much has changed, but the first post in this thread is very reflective of the test I took in June
I am very sorry about you not passing. I most certainly understand how you feel and what you are going through. I failed the AANP twice. I though I studied hard and felt well prepared on the second try, but I think I may have misread questions. I finished the test early. I am now preparing for the ANCC exam. I am using the ANCC yellow book which is really a pink book, Liek, Board Vitals and Hollier QBank. Board Vitals is very tough, but they have a lot of the "nonclinical" questions which may help on the exam. I am praying and trying to hold it together. The non clinical questions scare me and there is really no information out here from nurses who took the ANCC exam within the past few months. I have tried posting several times w/o feedback. I recently graduated in August and the majority of my classmates have passed the boards (AANP) so I understand where you are coming from. Please let me know of this helps. #stayfocused
I attended Fitzgerald's live review, read her other review book cover to cover, glanced through Liek, and used Board Vitals. Passed ANCC on my first try in June. If you are able - attend a live review (Fitz, Hollier, Liek) - if uable, sign up for an online review. If taking the ANCC, I can't stress enough - you need to know research, risk management, leadership issues cold. Use the strike out function to get rid of wrong answers. I didn't find it difficult - but Dr Fitzgerald told us - if you don't find the test difficult, then you are well prepared for it. Good luck all - you can do this!
I studied for about 6 weeks - did Fitzgerald's live review a couple of weeks after graduation and then her online content over the next 2 weeks. Helped me to zero in on where I needed to study further. Took the ANCC exam and passed on my first try. If you take ANCC, don't gloss over epidemiology, risk management, research, leadership, etc. Nothing tricky about the ANCC exam, clinical questions very straightforward. Don't continually review what you know cold -- focus on areas you are having problems recalling. I used Board Vitals to practice board-type questions. BV's questions are HARD! Exam was much easier!!!
Did not see one question on cranial nerves on ANCC
Congratulations!! It wasn't difficult because you were prepared!
I graduated with my MSN at 55. Age is just a number!!!
Congrats!!!! Thanks for the advice! I take my test In a few weeks... Feeling so nervous. I'm basically studying like you did... A system a day etc. there's just so much stuff!!! Are the clinical questions straightforward? Or detailed concepts? I'll probably struggle with the no clinical stuff more ugh!!! So nerve racking!
Congrats! I have failed the ANNP twice and ANCC Friday. Please if you have any suggestion on how to study, I would appreciate. I cannot taker the ANNP until nest year, therefore, I have to take the ANCC again and I so afraid. Personal email,joepatten3367@gmail .com. Please help!!!
What kind of study routine did everyone have.... Everyday? All day long? One system per day?
