Suppose K is a nonempty closed convex nonexpansive retract of a real uniformly convex Banach space E with P as a nonexpansive retraction. Let T: K → E be an asymptotically nonexpansive nonself-map with sequence {kn}n≥1 ⊂[1, ∞), limkn = 1, F(T):= {x ∈ K: Tx = x)≠ ∅. Suppose {xn}n≥1 is generated iteratively by x1 ∈ K, xn+1 = P((1-αn xnnT(PT)n-1xn), n≥1, where {αn}n≥1 ⊂ (0, 1) is such that ∈ < 1 - αn < 1 - ∈ for some ∈ > 0. It is proved that (I - T) is demiclosed at 0. Moreover, if ∑n≥1 (kn2 - 1) < ∞ and T is completely continuous, strong convergence of {xn} to some x* ∈ F(T) is proved. If T is not assumed to be completely continuous but E also has a Fréchet differentiable norm, then weak convergence of {xn} to some x* ∈ F(T) is obtained.
