Passed AANP!


I frequented allnurses while preparing for my FNP boards and gained a lot of good advice, so I figured that it is my turn to post. I took the AANP exam two days ago and am finally just starting to relax after 2 years of school and 1.5 months of studying. I feel that the Leik book was most helpful to me while studying. Yes, some of the information is outdated, but the updated information is available on her website. I also recommend doing an in person review if you are able to. I did the Fitzgerald review a week before I took the exam and it really helped to tie all the information together for me. I also took the predictor test through APEA and the AANP practice exam. The other thing that I did was to buy 3 practice tests off of exam edge. While I found this was slightly helpful, I felt the questions were harder than what I saw on the exam. All of this stuff gets pretty pricey, but I needed it to help build my confidence going into the exam. I hope this was helpful and good luck to all you future NP's!

Congratulations on completing school! I'm sure your hard work paid off! What school did you attend and do you feel school prepared you for the board exam?

There was a typo in my comment. Did you feel like school prepared you or gave you a good foundation for the board?
