- 0Sep 23, '08 by patannI am a new traveler and will be working in a facility requires the Bkat for ICU. I was told by a friend that she knew someone who just took the test for tele and had several tele strips to analize. If anyone has a copy of the cc bkat i would greatly apprciate getting a copy or some sort of study guide . I have been an ICU nurse for only a year and half and i don't want t be sent home for not passin this test. you can pm me or email me also
- 0Oct 1, '12 by crnacrn07I have to take it as a pre-employment screen for a per diem ER position and I have been in ER nursing for 10 years! I can't find any info on it either. I think all these tests are ridiculous (including the PBDS). You can get a nurse who is book smart and can pass these tests with flying colors only to find out they are horrible or inept at the bedside. I don't think they prove anything about a nurses' ability!
