Credentialing exam

  • 1.  Credentialing exam

    Did anyone use the National HIV Curriculum to study for the exam? National HIV Curriculum

    I do have the Fundamentals of HIV Medicine book, but the national HIV curriculum has the question bank which I really like. I did not purchase the practice tests from AAHIVM, but I have been doing the quizzes on the National Curriculum... wondering if others have found that helpful?

    Thanks all, I take my test next month :)

    I would like to follow this thread. Thanks for the question. I am using National HIV Curriculum as well, i like how they presented the information, and i feel like i retain more doing that than reading the book.

    Hi Gina,

     

    I work on the National HIV Curriculum and I can share with you that the National HIV Curriculum is listed as a suggested resource to prepare for the ACRN exam among other resources which you might find helpful. Several learning groups have been formed on the National HIV Curriculum for the specific purpose to prepare for a credentialing exam. AAHIVM also suggests the National HIV Curriculum to prepare for their exams. With the launch of the National HIV Curriculum 2nd Edition on 9/1/20 which means a new CE accreditation period, we now offer Maintenance of Certification points which will be of interest to American Board of Internal Medicine board certified physicians.

     

    I'm glad to hear that our board review style Question Bank section with more than 450 questions have been of assistance. Good luck with your exam!

    Thank you Julia!
    Yes I agree with Nadejda above, it is much easier to study using the questions in the question bank rather than reading the AAHIVM book! :)

    Hi Gina,

    We are on the same boat here :) I love the National HIV curriculum as well, in fact, I have covered the whole question bank. Also with the HIV Medicine book, you can try and do the question bank online as well. 

    Best of Luck!
