To all Practicing NP's
I am a recent graduate (May 2010) of an FNP program and want to get nationally certified through the ANCC. I would really like to take a review course but $500 for the Fitzgerald is pretty steep - isn't it???? I have the Fitzgerald book and the tapes - will this be enough??? Did I make the right decision not to take the review?
Also, any tips as far as books, or other test taking study guides/tools for the exam please send my way - ie is it better to read, take mini exams, listen to tapes or all of the above?
Lastly, any advice on studying for the exam ie. when did you know it was enough? I figured I would set aside a few hours every day to review. Would 2 months be enough?? I realize its all individual but I'm just nervous and trying to gauge the best way to tackle the exam so that I succeed.
Thanks to anyone or everyone that has survived this and remembers and has a moment to offer some advice.
