Passed EC Health Differences.

  1. 0
    I took Essentials of Nursing Care:Health Differences today and passed with an A! I was really sweating this one as Electrolytes is 30% of the exam and I was struggling with that. I've not had any problem with acid/base and can nail ABG's after finding two sites that helped me tremendously. I'm now moving on to Chronicity as I have better than half of the reading assignments already finished waiting to take Health Differences.

    The first site that I found is Hansen Nursing that has a very good ABG Tutorial:
    Welcome to Hansen Nursing

    The next site that I found is by someone named Adam Weinberg who's tutorial REALLY helped me with ABG's:
    ABG Interpretation Quiz

    After spending some time on his site I comprehend ABG's and can NAIL!!! every blood gas given.

    To also help with my exam I found appropriate sections in the Med-Surg textbook that wasn't listed in the required reading then used the Saunder's NCLEX study guide to get more on electrolytes and took the exams in the book.

    This is the first time I've done this but for every other lesson I'll use the Saunder's and any other reference material I can.

    Hey Rom,
    Nice to see another paramedic moving into a more stable environment. I used all the recommended study material (text books)in EC's study guide plus the Saunder's NCLEX Study guide. I also used the websites I referenced several posts ago, they really helped me with the logical interpretation of blood gases. Good luck with your test. Yea, I'm ready to take Chronicity and have it scheduled for next Friday. I'm just waiting on my book order to arrive to begin Repro. Health. I looked seriously at College Network but decided on Excelsior itself because I wanted to do my own study and expand on concepts with the textbooks instead of a guided study based only on NCLEX.
