CNS Certification


I just graduated and want to take the AACN Acute Care Adult Gero CNS certification. I have been told ANCC is easier, but I want the AACN certification because I have a critical care background and I am already a member of that organization. For those of you who took this exam, what did you use to prepare? Barkley? Fitzgerald? Mometrix? Thank you!

Most discussions of exam prep for CNS grads have focused on the Mometrix products.  The grads from our program that take the AACN typically are using CCRN prep books (to get the feel for the style of questions), Synergy Model, and Mometrix.   I suppose that acute care NP prep tools could be useful as well.
