AANP and ANCC recently published their certification statistics for 2022. The AANP FNP pass rate dropped from 85% in 2021 to 75% in 2022. https://www.aanpcert.org/resource/documents/AANPCB%202022%20Statistics.pdf The ANCC FNP pass rate remained steady with a pass rate of 85.9%, down slightly from 86.6% in 2021. https://www.nursingworld.org/~498ced/globalassets/docs/ancc/ancc-cert-data-website.pdf What happened? Did the ANCC's FNP board certification just become the easier exam? These passing rates are for INITIAL EXAMINATIONS (first-time test takers). Did you take the FNP board exam in 2022? All comments are welcome.
