by Emily Kean on 2017-12-12T11:38:00-05:00 in Health Sciences | Comments

Due to the high usage of our two existing question banks, we’ve just added additional question banks as part of our renewal. We now have access to:

  • AACN Adult-Gerontology Acute Care NP
  • AANP Family Nurse Practitioner
  • Adult-Gerontology Primary Care NP
  • ANCC Adult-Gerontology Acute Care NP
  • ANCC Family Nurse Practitioner
  • Certified Nurse Midwife
  • Pediatric Nurse Practitioner
  • Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner

You may access BoardVitals through the Nursing Research Guide e-books page:  Scroll down to "E-book spotlight" where BoardVitals is listed as a featured resource. Or, simply follow the instructions below to register for a new account.

If you have already created an account, you may need to change your account settings. Log in to BoardVitals and click your account in the upper right corner:

For occupation, choose "Nurse/Advance Practice Nurse" and for Specialty, choose "Other. Then click Save Changes, and then click Back to dashboard.

After you change your occupation and specialty and go back to the dashboard, you should now have a link above the question banks that will email you a code for full access. Click that link and that will send an email to your UC email which you can use to add the additional question banks. Go to your UC email to complete the verification. Check your Junk folder if you don't see the email in your inbox.
