New PANCE 2019

Recommended Posts

Hey there

I took my boards last year and failed

Has anyone taken them 2019 with the new guidelines yet?

I did not as I had no previous knowledge that they were added to the exam.

Seriously? WAY too much detail. This is in direct violation of NCCPA rules (which you agreed to when you took the exam) and your certification could be on the line. i would edit this post and delete all details if I were you.

I also took the 2019 PANCE. Still waiting for my score (grrr) but I did not buy any supplemental study material for the new ethics portion and I'm glad I didn't. The answers were either obvious or not anything you could really study/memorize. Just use common sense and you will do just fine. Some people in my class bought ethics study guides; I'd say save your money and focus on the clinical content.

Did you find the exam hard? Any study tips or study materials you suggest? I am currently using HIPPO's question bank. This will be my 2nd time taking it and the 1st time taking it with the new blueprint/guidelines. Hoping they didn't change the style of the exam too much.

It really wasn't that bad. There were a few questions that were out of left field but the majority of them were reasonable and fair. I used ROSH review and I'd say ROSH review was harder than the actual PANCE, but it prepared me well. I never took the old PANCE so can't speak to whether or not it was harder.

Thank you for your feedback, that's good to hear! Hoping you passed!
