Failed Boards and finally Passed

Hi everyone,

I finished my DNP since 2018 and was struggling to pass my FNP boards. I finally did on 01/16/2021. I am currently actively on orientation as an Integrated Nurse Practitioner in an outpatient clinic. It was a long road with many bumps but it is allover now.

Let me summarize how I finally did it working full time at the same time.

-I secured Shaira Cohen's and Sarah Michelle's FNP reviews on Youtube and contacted them for the full reviews. I studied those everyday for eight weeks three hours daily.

-I also secured Mosby's FNP review online mostly for the tests

-I also bought APEA 2020 online review and went through it twice

-I read all of Leik's third edition exam tips and did all her 746 questions

-I did 700 questions from FNP mastery

With all this, I signed up for the ANCC test and only wrote on my dump sheet; "I will pass in Jesus' name" and took the test and passed. 

If anyone is in my situation, do not give up. Check out these reviews I mentioned. You'll be glad you did.

Now I can proudly announce myself as DNP, FNP-BC, APRN

The problem IMHO with the boards is that they are not clinical enough. Questions about medications/diagnoses are important skills to test, and line up with our expected role as an NP. 

 

The other 50% of questions are bizarre fluff about historical court cases and other non-science, non-medical topics. Those questions are somewhat embarassit at the provider level. Our boards should look similar to PA boards.
