AANP OR ANCC?

Posted

Hello!

Just got done with school and would like to know what is your take on AANP vs ANCC for FNP focus? What is the difference in the test and the value of having the certification of one or the other or is it better to have both?

Thanks a lot!

Specializes in Adult Internal Medicine. Has 10 years experience.

For all intents and purposes they are equal.

ANCC is broader and slightly more difficult.

AANP is more clinical and perhaps slight easier.

They award different credentials (FNP vs NP-C).
