When I worked at the nursing home, my former supervisor (recently retired), she graduated nursing school
in the 1940's and used to tell me the stories. There are a ton of them, but she told me how the state boards used to be half practical and she had to demonstrate how to deliver a baby in breech position!!
I seriously would have had an MI if I had to demonstrate ANYTHING in front of board members, even if it was just handwashing!!
