Pre-Employment Testing

  1. 0
    I would like to apply to a few agencies in the South Florida Area. I have been off the floor for about 9 months. I am reviewing NCLEX materials. Any advice or study tips for the agency pre-employment testing? What topics should I focus on? I am a neuro-tele nurse.

    I always assumed that "pre-employment testing" was (as some of us affectionately call it in the military) a "whizz quiz".

    The only way to study is lay off the drugs for a few weeks

    Not quite. I mean the competency exams.

    Those tests are pretty easy and standard. Usually multiple choice and some dose calculations. Don't sweat it. You will do just fine.

    I'm headed back into travel nursing and have the same question. Before my last assignment, I took no less than 32 tests to start with one particular agency; they ranged from med-surg to maths to the required JCAHO required fire-safety and OSHA tests. Needless to say there was plenty of freaking out going on about having to take Med/Surg exams after ten years in cardiothoracics. I hadn't thought about gallbladders in years! I've done a good bit of studying by simply "googling" PDDS study guides and such. My question is, does anyone know if these exams are required for every single travel assignment? i know the JCAHO ones are, but the rest as well? I'd think the exam results would be on file with the company that I just traveled with not three months ago?
