ANCC ACNP prep help


I am got my MSN as ACNP and then did FNP right after. In my job I really could use either one because it was adult male only patients. I stupidly let my ACNP lapse and now must take the boards over. I have been out of school for 10 years and I am scared and my motivation is slowly returning. I know the new ACNP programs include Geri now. What are ya'll using for board review prep?

You need to check if you can still sit for the adult. If you take the new one you have to have the additional education for gero.

Imccrn62, I have checked with ANCC, I have till Dec 31, 2014 to take the existing ACNP exam, it will be retired at that time. If I don't have board certification at that time, my only recourse is to go back to graduate school to obaint the geri content I don't currently have. So I MUST prepare and pass for the ACNP exam in 2014. I am also trying to get on with the VA in Lubbock. I have submiited the required forms and the positiion closed this week. Waiting to hear something.

Some are using Barkley , Fitzgerald, APEA, and Leik Intensive Review Book. Also did you look at ANCC website for any review books?

I am currently doing the Barkley CDs and am going to get the Fitz online next. APEA and I believe Leik, do not have acute care just adult geri primary. I love APEA! She is so down to earth. Also I have Sally Miller Acute Care review book questions. I have been out of school 10 years.
