    http://www.anccprep.com/index.cfm is the site I am using. The exams are kicking my butt.

    To Go for DNP or Not?

    I am trying to decide which route to take myself, DNP or MSN. I was all set to apply to MSN programs but the scholarship program I plan to apply to told me that they will fund DNP students first. :-( I am going the PMHNP route. I saw a job opening that said "MSN NP not to be substituted with DNP". So, now I wonder if getting a DNP is going to make my options more narrow.

    DNP student needs to ask some question to a practicing DNP

    Janice, have you received a reply? If not, I will ask on some facebook groups. I am a student too, so I cannot answer but hoping to help.

    Daily to-do list

    dianekt, I'm sorry that you haven't received a reply. I would be interested to see the same type of thing if someone wants to share. I work in Performance Improvement but mostly with Core Measures. How is the new position going?

    PMHN exam- study time?

    Wushu, I am studying for the same exam. I am using it as my clinical project for the last semester of the BSN program. I haven't worked in psych in about 2 years and I feel like I jumped in over my head but I'm gonna go for it! I bought the book suggested on the ANCC website, the practice exams on exam edge and Pearls Review. IMO, Pearls Review is not worth it if you don't need the CEUs. I have until January first to take the exam.

    Has anyone recently took the ANCC exam for psych?

    Thank you for the information and vote of confidence, Kathy! The more I read the ANCC book the more overwhelmed I feel.
  7. I recently spoke with a counselor from Brandman. He tells me that they are willing to accept a letter from my current school stating that I will graduate in December with a BSN so that I can meet the application deadline to start the DNP program in January. At first I was very excited, now I feel a little leery. Anyone have experience with this program?

    Thank you Orca, I had read that on their website but I still felt like I might be missing something. It is nice to have some reassurance.

    chevyv, did you have a BSN when you took the exam? One of the textbooks that I was using to study (from my associate degree RN program) specifically states that you have to have a BSN to take the ANCC exam. I don't remember seeing that on the ANCC website but I guess I'll go take another look.

    ChevyV, thank you for replying! The hours are 2,000 in psychiatric- mental health, 30 CEUs within the last 3 years. I would have to take the test by December to meet that criteria because I have been away from patient care for almost 2 years. I finally received the ANCC study manual yesterday, thank goodness. I also signed up on Exam edge. I really hope all of this helps me pass!
  11. I am in the final semester of a RN to BSN program. One of our choices for our clinic project is to take an ANCC exam. I have thought about taking it before but now I am really interested. I bought a membership to Pearls Review but I am not at all impressed with the material. I know the exam won't be as simple as the material on Pearls. I have ordered the book listed on the ANCC website but it hasn't arrived yet. I was wondering if anyone has taken this exam recently and could shed some light on study materials?

    RN auditor/coder

    As you can see, this information is from 2009. Core measures have certainly expanded since then, but this describes the job.

    RN auditor/coder

    Just wanted to say Hello QualityInfoRN. I abstract Core Measures too. Do you abstract concurrently or post stay? Just wondering, I have been in this position for 1 and 1/2 years and I will be trying concurrent for the first time this week.

    ER nurse here, so what do you do as PH nurse?

    Sorry, PI is Performance Improvement.

    Rearview, have you considered PI? I have been in PI about a year and a half, M-F 7:30- 4:30, mostly on a computer, no patient care so I cannot wear scrubs. I took the job for the schedule. I miss patient care and I intend to get back to it when I am done with school.
