Do you have a dream of working in the nursing field, and you seek extra help with an approaching test? Consider reaching out to Varsity Tutors and signing up for an AANP prep course. The AANP, an acronym for the American Academy for Nurse Practitioners, is a certification board that administers exams for certification and recertification of nurses. If you feel that you can benefit from an AANP prep class, contact an educational consultant today to more about it.
It's required for aspiring nurses to obtain certification in order to work in the hospital or private practice of their choice. You also need to recertify every five years. There are three different exams you can take each possessing a different specialty. Here they are below:
|FNP||Family Nurse Practitioner. Tests Clinical knowledge of families and individuals from prenatal to elderly stages.||150 Questions, 15 of which are unidentified and unscored Pretest questions|
|A-GNP||Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner. Tests clinical understanding of individuals from adolescence to elderly stages.||150 Questions, 15 of which are unidentified and unscored Pretest questions|
|ENP||Emergency Nurse Practitioner. Tests knowledge of emergency care.||150 Questions, 15 of which are unidentified and unscored Pretest questions|
Because you're pursuing a career in nursing, you need to have vast knowledge of topics like signs and symptoms, legal and ethical issues, and health history. If you want clarity on any topic you're studying in class, you can ask a tutor to help clear things up in our AANP prep classes. What's wonderful about AANP prep courses is that you can request a tutor to conduct a lesson at a slower pace so that you can take your time and understand it fully.
During an AANP course, you can ask a tutor to teach a lesson in a way that best helps you. For example, if you learn best by listening to lectures and taking notes, your tutor can accommodate that. In an AANP class, you can even learn how to manage your time effectively because you have an instructor available to monitor how well you use your study hours. We at Varsity Tutors are proud to offer AANP classes that help you adopt skills for you to use now and in the future.
Another benefit of obtaining certification is that you are listed by the AANP so that employers and state boards can find you to verify your certification. If you want to take the ENP exam, here are the topics it covers:
