Information about the Family Nurse Practitioner AANP Certification Exam


Pass your ABEM boards with Med-Challenger

The AANP certification exams are entry-level, competency-based examinations for nurse practitioners reflective of nurse practitioner knowledge and expertise. Candidates who meet the requirements and successfully pass the appropriate certification examination to become certified by AANP are qualified to use the credential NP-C (Nurse Practitioner-Certified) to indicate their certification status. Certification is granted for 5-year periods.

The AANP FNP certification examination is an entry-level competency-based examination that tests clinical knowledge in family/individual across the life span (prenatal, pediatric, adolescent, adult, older adult, and elderly primary care).

The AANP certification exam is are administered at PSI’s Testing Centers via computer-based testing format. Candidates must create an account at PSI Exams online at www.psiexams.com before registering for an exam. Candidates receive a 120-day window to test. Candidates cannot take the certification examination more than TWICE in a calendar year (January 1st to December 31st).

There are 150 questions on each examination. A candidate's score is based solely on the 135 scored questions. Of the 150 questions, 15 are pretest questions. There are 3 hours (180 minutes) to take the exam. Before the exam starts,  a tutorial will be given that shows how to use the computer and keyboard provided. The time spent on the tutorial, up to 15 minutes, DOES NOT count as part of your test time. During the examination, minutes remaining will be displayed at the top of the screen.

Pretest questions are used on the examinations to obtain statistical information for determining how well they perform prior to vetting them for use on the scored portion of the examination. The pretest questions cannot be distinguished from those that are scored. A test-taker’s score on pretest questions does not affect a candidate's final score.

Thank you for making the ANCC FNP exam easy. Much more effective than a live nurse practitioner certification review course. Less cost. And no travel!

Kesha Williamson, FNP
Barlow, NP

Passed the AANP exam and plan on keeping this. It's a gold mine for NPs. Other reviews just don't do everything Med-Challenger does.

Barry Barlow, FNP
Michael Wortell, MSN, FNP-BC

“Med-Challenger was, hands-down, the best investment I made in my NP boards preparation. I was thrilled by the sheer volume of questions offered in their test bank. The questions were challenging and aided me in growing not only as a student preparing to test but as a soon to be professional NP. The “Smart Test” option was immensely helpful because it helped me focus on weak areas that I might otherwise skip over. Med-Challenger has done a phenomenal job of organizing what could easily be an overwhelming amount of content. The option to study by subject matter was a wonderful means by which to organize my day-to-day test preparation. I was able to move system-by-system until I completed a review of almost every aspect of the human body! I would be remiss if I did not add a note regarding how helpful the answer rationales were for each question. The rationales always included a “key point” at the outset, which I would read if I was really crunched for time and wanted the cliff-notes version of why an answer was correct or incorrect. But following the “key point,” was a thorough explanation of the topic addressed by the question. I honestly wish I had access to these answer rationales while going through school! They were so thorough and yet readable that I found myself reading up on topics I already felt comfortable with just to add to my knowledge base. I couldn’t be more thrilled with my decision to utilize Med-Challenger as my primary nurse practitioner certification test preparation resource. I would recommend Med-Challenger to absolutely anyone preparing for their NP boards! 10/10.
