Failed the AANP and ANCC - page 13

Hello everyone So I took the AANP in March 2011 after taking the Fitz course, and failed (personally I didn't think I was ready), but I thought I would try. Then I purchased the Barkley Assoc CD... Read More

    It is possible to have test anxiety and not be able to pass. A friend of mine had her doc prescribe a med for her to take on test day--she passed.

    And I thought the Fitzgerald book and questions were good. Also I attended the seminar, though I hear the CD's are the same material. We had a study group for the test and quizzed each other. We also studied the material together and we all passed! If you took the Hesi exam for NP's it is a very good predictor of pass rate.

    RNOB, did you feel prepared for the test? How did you prepare?

    I did feel prepared. At the end of test I actually thought, wow this isn't as hard as I expected it to be. I felt good hitting the submit button. Crazy thing is that the questions that I have looked up that I can remember I seemed to have gotten correctly. I used the Fitzgerald CD's, Hollier & Leik books & went back to my pharm, Bates assessment, & a primary care book that we used during the program. I made A's throughout the program. How do I prepare for the next exam? Will the next exam be any easier? I have a job waiting for me. Completely bummed right now!

    I also paid for the sample test on the AANP site.

    Don't stress...I know its easier said than done. Keep studying. You don't need any more study materials. They will send you a letter letting you know your score and where you need to strengthen. Get a study partner. Dust yourself off and take it again. You will pass

    quick question- did you have to take your att letter with you or just your IDs? I cannot find my ATT and I test tomorrow. Go figure.

    Just id's when I went. Call them and ask. I'm sure they have your att
