ClinicIan Feedback:

I wanted to tell you that I used BoardVitals for my AANP certification. It was extremely helpful and I would recommend your product to any advance practice nursing students to help prepare for boards. The questions were well written and provided a thorough explanation for the correct and incorrect answers. I passed boards without difficulty. Thank you for a wonderful product to prepare for certification.

AANP Family Nurse Practitioner Sample Questions:

Question 1

The anovulation associated with polycystic ovary syndrome increases the risk of which of the following?

A) Pregnancy
B) Symptomatic ovarian cysts
C) Hydrosalpinges
D) Endometrial cancer
E) Ovarian cancer

D) Endometrial cancer

Correct: (D) Endometrial cancer. Explanation: Endometrial cancer is preceded in most cases by endometrial hyperplasia, a disorder caused by "unopposed" estrogen, meaning the endometrium is exposed to estrogen without cyclic exposure to progestins or progesterone. Ovulation is the precursor to progesterone secretion by the ovary, and women who do not ovulate do not produce sufficient levels of progesterone to protect against endometrial hyperplasia and carcinoma. A. FALSE: Because ovulation is required for spontaneous pregnancy, polycystic ovary syndrome increases the risk of infertility, not pregnancy. B. FALSE: Although "polycystic" ovaries are part of the diagnostic criteria for the syndrome, the cysts that are described are <10mm and asymptomatic. C and E. FALSE: Ovarian cancer and hydrosalpinges are not increased in women with polycystic ovary syndrome.

Question 2

Which of the following is consistent with the Institute of Medicine's recommendations for the practice of a nurse practitioner within a team?

A) Team-based care is a regulatory construct that mandates autonomy of nurse practitioners
B) The healthcare team should have a structured format led by a designated qualified healthcare professional appointed by statute
C) Current healthcare laws allow full participation of all team members to the potential of their training and skill
D) Coordinated care delivery should follow strict guidelines established by the IOM
E) The role of nurse practitioners on a healthcare delivery team may vary

E) The role of nurse practitioners on a healthcare delivery team may vary

Correct answer: (E) The role of nurse practitioners on a healthcare delivery team may vary. Explanation: The American Association of Nurse Practitioners supports implementation of the concept of team-based care, proposed by the Institute of Medicine. Team-based care refers to the provision of health services to individuals, families, or their communities by at least two healthcare providers who work collaboratively to provide coordinated, high quality, and patient-centered care. The role of nurse practitioners on the healthcare team may include clinician, consultant, advocate, educator, leader, manager, and evaluator. (A) Team-based care refers to a systems model of care delivery, but it is not a regulatory construct. (B) The healthcare team should be able to work in flexible frameworks to implement innovative solutions to provide high-quality care for diverse populations. (C) Current healthcare laws must be modified to remove barriers that will allow healthcare systems to realize full benefit from all team members. Research shows that when nurse practitioners are able to perform to the limits of their ability, access and quality outcomes improve and cost decreases. (D) Coordinated care delivery should be tailored to meet the needs of the consumer.
