“I used these questions to pass my Acute Care Nurse Practitioner board exam through the AACN. They were so comprehensive, that by the time I sat for the exam, although I was nervous, the actual exam questions seemed much more simple. I started using BoardVitals, roughly 6 months prior to taking the exam and wish I would have started using them even earlier because they helped me with my exams in school as well. And finally, when my classmates saw me using BoardVitals, almost all of them purchased a membership, and I’m proud to say that we all passed on the first try.”Danielle LeVeck, DNP
