    I think I work with her on Monday, I'll ask then. I might have her email address somewhere, I'll see if she can email it to me, or if she has a hard copy of it we will figure something out.

    thank you for taking the time...I just want to know what to expect.I knew what to expect for nclex, tncc,enpc,acls, etc just by preparing a little bit, and it makes all the difference in the world. I appreciate your effort!

    I think I can get you a copy of it, let me check. They tried to get us to use it, first telling us itwas for survey purposes only and then saying they were counting it against us. Le me do some checking, we had 2 versions of it. I will get back to you tomorrow if your still interested.

    Thanks...all of the nurses in this unit are stressing, and are afraid of being "weeded out" based on bkat scores...this is entirely conceivable . Again, we prepared for nclex, acls,tncc,enpc,etc...why is this so different?

    Is there any way to get a copy of the content or a list of possible questions that will be on the BKAT, I too am changing from one hospital to another, in critical care and have to take the BKAT, a little nervous bc I don't know what to expect?

    I have just taken the bkat 2 times in the past month
    because i signed up with 2 different agencies and 2 of the hospitals I would be working at required it. I have been in critical care for 11 years and did not find the test too diff. And, if you have been in CVICU for 8 years, you will do fine. There are questions over each body system. I remember a few questions i couldn't answer that were related to CVVH, but the rest were related to things I have been practicing for years.

    The test is 100 questions and you can miss up to 20 questions. It is just another test hospitals want you to do because they think passing a test means you know what you are doing!! hehehe!!

    Good luck and don't stress too much!!

    HI! I am in the same situation whereas I am nervous about taking this test since I have been out of school for 12 years. I hear new grads do well, but the experienced ones have difficulty. I am looking to obtain a copy for review. Is anyone able to forward a copy? I can't seem to individually contact those on the thread that may have access to one. You can reach me at r2serious@aol.com
    I would be unbelievably grateful to anyone who can!!!
    Thanks and God Bless, Gina
