As outlined in the Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner ANCC outline the examination evaluates a candidate’s knowledge of primary care of the adult and geriatric patients. This includes entry-level clinical knowledge and skills of nurse practitioners, basic pathophysiology, clinical decision making, role of the nurse practitioner, and a candidate’s ability to use this information for problem solving in the diagnosis and treatment of patients.
The AGPCNP Exam contains 200 questions, however only 175 are scored questions. The other 25 are pretest questions that do not affect a candidate’s score. The examination includes four types of questions: 1) multiple choice; 2) multiple response; 3) drag and drop; and 4) hot spot. Most of the test questions are multiple choice.
The BoardVitals AGPCNP Question Bank contains approximately the same distribution of topics in a similar format to the actual exam.
While it is always encouraged to prepare as early and as thoroughly as possible, enrolling in a review course is a decision based on your own personal circumstance and level of preparation. The BoardVitals Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Question Bank provides practice questions with detailed explanations and assessment to identify areas of strengths and weaknesses. Given that the explanations in the question bank cover both correct and incorrect responses, they are often referred to as “mini-lectures” and candidates typically find these sufficient for understanding most topics.
