If you're planning to begin studying for an American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) exam, Varsity Tutors can help you improve your process with our ANCC prep courses. Obtaining assistance from an ANCC course as you study for any one of the specialized exams shows that you're dedicated to doing your best on test day.
Whether you're planning to earn your credentials to specialize as a Family Nurse Practitioner, an Adult-Gerontology Clinical Nurse Specialist, or any other specific nursing discipline, private ANCC classes may be the answer to gaining the edge you need to reach your potential. The type of ANCC class Varsity Tutors can sign you up for features one-on-one tutoring. This means you receive targeted, specialized guidance as you study, and that each ANCC prep class session can be tailored to your specific needs.
When you commit to completing your study through a Varsity Tutors ANCC prep course, you can count on your instructor to plan dynamic lessons with the flexibility to adapt each week as you grow and improve. Because it's just you and your instructor, they can assess where you're at when you first begin your ANCC prep classes and then continue to track your progress over time. If you're learning a particular concept more quickly than anticipated, they can adjust each upcoming session to reflect that.
Your private ANCC tutor can help with more than just the content you'll find on the exam. For one thing, learning to pace yourself during the test so that you have enough time to comfortably answer all questions or perform all tasks could be highly beneficial. Trying to reach that pace for the first time as you take the exam isn't necessary if you and your ANCC tutor work on it together, possibly through taking timed practice tests regularly until you reach the necessary speed while retaining your accuracy. Other things your instructor may be able to provide are practice questions formatted the way they are on the exam, homework assignments so you're making efficient use of your time together, and a variety of methods based on your exact and ever-evolving needs.
In addition to specific test content, your private ANCC tutor can help you become familiar with the format of the exam. Here's a breakdown of your ANCC class could prepare you for on the FNP-BC exam:
