Board Review Question Banks


BoardVitals brings together the best content from top teaching faculty programs, leading specialists, and major publishers, to create the largest and most up-to-date training ecosystem in healthcare, covering more than 70 specialties. Available Question Banks are continually updated, based on user feedback and ratings to ensure milestone achievement in licensing and initial certification and support through maintenance of certification (MOC) continuing professional education.

Providing the highest quality content, BoardVitals does not only provide a question bank; they provide up-to-date explanations from the literature with their answers and detailed rationales as well an assessment of progress broken down by subject areas. With each question, users can see how they compare to their peers and gauge the difficulty of the question by what percentage of peers answered it correctly or chose the same option. The BoardVitals full-length practice exam is a great way to judge overall preparedness and estimate what scoring might be on the real thing.

From reputable and trusted sources, BoardVitals content references many major dermatology, surgery, pediatric, cardiology, gastroenterology, obstetrics, gynecology, emergency medicine, internal medicine, family medicine, pathology, cytology, laboratory, psychiatry, neurology, nursing, surgical tech, and psychopharmacology texts, and journals.

BoardVitals Practice Exams

Full-length practice exams for select question banks are available as an add-on feature to BoardVitals subscriptions. With practice exams, users will experience a full-length test in advance of their boards to ease anxiety prior to test day.

Each practice exam is formatted to mimic the precise exam blueprint and length of the board exam, which allows test takers to become familiar with the layout and tools they will use when they sit for their exam. Practice exam questions are a separate, additional set of questions from the ones within the question bank. Users can also find out their strengths and weaknesses with a personalized score report after the test. In addition, users can even create a custom quiz with the exam interface (on select practice exams) in case they want to get used to the interface outside of the full-length practice exam.

The following specialties have an add-on option to purchase the full-length practice exams:

  • • AANP Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner
