Very very nervous ANCC

  1. Hello all. I'm just very scared about taking my ANCC adult/gero np exam. I studied but I just hope I studied enough. I feel like crying cause I just don't think I can take it. Any advice to calm my nerves or tips for preparing for this exam? Thanks in advanced.

    If it is any constellation I wrote AANP FNP last month and prior to going into that exam I felt like you did. Keep in mind that certification exams are testing the most basic entry-level competencies. They don't expect you to know what an NP working 10 years knows. Good luck

    I'd be more worried if you had high confidence. In my experience, arrogant students are usually the ones who need to study up. A little fear is healthy. After reading your post, I'm sure you'll do fine. Try and get a good nights sleep, take a little break the day before, and some caffeine can help. Good luck.
