ANCC Introduces New Exam for Family Nurse Practitioners
The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) recently published a new blueprint for its family nurse practitioner exam that will significantly change how FNP students prepare for ANCC certification. The blueprint implements new content domains that reflect a move toward more clinical content and significantly less questioning on professional role topics. The new ANCC test content outline for FNPs will take effect May 22, 2019.
When Does the new Exam Blueprint Take Effect?
ANCC FNP exams that follow the 2016 content outline end on May 18, 2019. ANCC will suspend its FNP exams for 4 days in May to allow for exams to be updated. Candidates may test before May 18 under the 2016 blueprint or after May 22 under the 2019 blueprint. ANCC FNP exams administered after May 22, 2019, reflect the content contained in the 2019 exam blueprint.
