Scared

  1. Hello!
    I'm taking my ANCC exam for Adult Gero PC in 3 weeks and I'm slowly FREAKING OUT! I graduated in May of 2018 and my exam is scheduled this November. I really don't want to fail and I'm just so nervous about this test. I just did a free sample test online and got 272! (I mean it was only 10 questions, but still!!) Should I move my exam back? Is there anything I can do? Any advice will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Relax (if you can). Did you take a review course?

    I always advocate taking the exam as soon as possible - don't wait. Go for it - best wishes.

    Your 'balls up' responses are truly not needed. If you have nothing useful to say, don't comment.

    OP, am sorry you are feeling so nervous. Just remember, that is a normal response, but don't let it cross into unhealthy by allowing it to sabotage you! I recommend taking the test as you scheduled it; do something to clear your head, take comfort in the fact that you may try again. Use the time you have to study; don't waste it in anticipatory anxiety.

    We are rooting for you.

    Hello everyone,
    thanks for the kind words. To answer the other post, I have taken other reviews (one with 100 q and got a 377, and the ANCC question bank sampler of 100 q and got 73%). Also i took Fitzgerald online review. I just don't want to fail this exam. I'm scared. The exam is in 3 days
