    I didn't think it was bad at all. Study your A-I assessment. Most is reviewed in class. You will be fine. And remember to always verbalize " While maintaining C-Spine immobilization..."

    oh it is so much fun.

    LOVED it. It is a lot of work and detail, but if it's what you do and you love it, you'll do just fine.

    In the center of the book should be some testing materials. I cant remember if they are practical or written help, but the items with stars next to them are fail points. Start to get familiar with these and review general pathophys of traumatic injury. (shock, emboli, mechanisms of injury, etc.) Good luck!
    you need to get down the Mnemonics of ABC, etc.... primary/secondary. Remember to think logically and chronologically.

    If you do that, you won't forget. Keep it orderly.

    I'm looking over the book now and am taking the class next week. It seems to me that its basically EMS training for RNs. If you have any EMT/Paramedic background, things should be good...it seems?
    no, it's not just EMS training for nurses.

    It's pretty detailed and specific to the emergent situation as it relates to nursing.

    It's not so different from ITLS, if you've ever had that as a paramedic. It doesn't have a prehospital focus, though. I liked TNCC.

    I took tncc and thought it was a joke, the instructors throw the info at you so fast that if you need to be a hands on learner like me or if you need to study about certain things you cant. The info is complicated and very tough to grasp.

    Did you read through the book prior to class?

    Skill stations were easy, just review the sceniarios, they all have common themes. .... Failed the test though.. help!

    Of course, I wasn't in your class, but I j took it for the first time a few days ago at my facility and the test pretty much was all stuff covered in the lecture. Most of it, anyway. I would j take really good notes during the lectures and you should be able to pass if you study your notes well.
