I found the live webinar review course extremely helpful because the information provided were easy to understand and retain. I also took APEA practice exam which helped me find my readiness for the certification exam also find my knowledge holes and by fiiling those holes I was able to pass my FNP certification exam. Thank you APEA team for such a wonderful learning experience.
Excellent Course.
I took AANP exam (after waiting nearly 6 months after graduation to take the exam) a few months ago and did not pass. I did not do any formal review program, but had done a few hundred practice questions and was scoring approximately 75% on those practice questions. I felt like the exam went okay, but only missed passing by 34 points. I decided to not mess around the second time and purchased the APEA Video Review Course and FNP Predictor Exam. I watched the videos 2-3 times each and took the predictor exam. When I went into the testing center this morning, I did not feel any test anxiety that I had felt prior to the first time I took it. I felt more confident and knew how to approach the questions, what they were asking, and things to look for in each question to help pick out the correct answers. I did not learn any new content from this course, but that is not the intent. If we were learning new material, it would not be a "review" course. We would still be in school.......NO THANKS! I am so grateful to Dr Hollier and all other instructors for putting this together to help those of us who needed the extra little boost. I would recommend this course to every single person before taking the FNP Certification Exam.
Hi there, I attended the live review course in Memphis, Tennessee Aug. 3-4. I graduated Aug. 14th and I am happy to announce that I passed the ANCC exam on October 23, 2023. I could not be more excited and thrilled that I passed on my first attempt.
Good evening, I just wanted to take a quick moment to notify you that I passed, on my first try, the AANP board certification exam for FNPs on Monday 10/9/2023! I took the APEA live review course on August 15th & 16th and allotted myself 6 weeks to review before taking the exam. I found the APEA lectures remarkably helpful in my studies! I also purchased a QBank subscription and a couple of practice exams to help keep me on track. After reviewing each section, I would note all the first-line medications for each disease process within that system and any other important points, such as gold standard diagnostics, or emphasized points I noted during the live review. Thank you all for what you do to support students' successes and I appreciate each of the instructors and their willingness to share their knowledge and expertise!
I passed the AANP exam today on the first attempt. I purchased it around September, I watched her video 3 times. I strongly recommend this course to understand the content, especially for AANP takers. Thank you Amallie, Mimi, and Lindsy for helping me to pass.
