Congrats! I passed AANP - AGNP exam today. I found (APEA) Ameile Hollier's live course (videos) beneficial and also AGNP Cert review 3rd ed, premium access, I did about two weeks intensive studying, finished exam 1 1/2 hours
I just graduated from Duke in 12/2018. They have a great distance based program that is pricey. But what are you comparing it to? I also chose them because of their specialty education. I had a job before I even finished my program. I just passed my boards today. They do have part time options (I went full-time, and worked full-time) possible but hectic. Did you look online they show tentative schedules. good luck in you choice. Duke is a great school and has great support and rankings.
I got my notifications as well. I understand we cannot get into anything until Wed. I will look for the FB page. Yes there is a book list. message me i can get it to you or FB group. From what I can tell I actually think we really start next Monday

Just curious, you talk of going into leadership vs. NP because of pay? I am in leadership and realize this is not what I like to do (even though my staff think it is ). I am starting an NP program in Jan and cannot wait to get back into what I came into nursing for the patients not the drama...I say go where you will find the balance of enjoying what you do and pay
I was just accepted into a program with a specialty in HIV, I know I will likely need to move and am willing to do so after graduation. Psych is in great demand, not sure about peds. I would look to many other resources. Search all the facilities and private practices you would be willing to commute to. Don't just look at one resource. Will you be doing family or Adult/geriatric? you should also consider jobs that may not be in the area you choose to specialize in but are there FNP or AGNP jobs available? You can never predict what the job outlook will be in two years when you graduate.
