    I'll probably register to take both exams basically due to fear of failing one exam and passing the other. It's a realistic option but I appreciate all the comments on the ANCC exam being the easier of the two. In the end, you only have to maintain licensure with one of the organizations according to a coworker of mine.

    I totally don't agree that the ANCC is easier...BTW, it has a lower pass rate when compared to the AANP! I took the GNP and ANP through the ANCC and it was DEFINITELY more difficult than the FNP through the AANP.

    I just took the FNP with AANP and it was NOTHING like the Fitzgerald review. I also paid $60 for the additional cert exam and practice prep by Fitz while at the review. I FAILED!!!!! NONE OF THE QUESTIONS WERE LIKE THE REVIEW AT ALL.

    That sucks, I am so sorry to hear this. I sit in a couple of weeks and I am just sick reading your entry I also took the Fitz Review and have been studying out of Leik. If you don't mind me asking, what were some of the areas concentrated on on your particular exam? e.g. diabetes/TB/asthma, etc...

    So sorry, hold your head high and re-take asap!!!
