Has anyone else been "tested" by "PBDS" or Performance Based Development Systems??? What was your experience? Very bad experience here! I've been a nurse for over 15 yrs, lots of competency exams, tests etc. This one was ridiculous--watched a 20 second video and had 7 minutes to make a MEDICAL DIAGNOSIS, decide what orders needed to be done 1st, 2nd etc what outcome was expected. There was one RIGHT answer!! No room for discussion!!! Now I'm being "remediated" for 6 weeks! Very humiliating. Has anyone else had a similiar experience??

if your's was anything like the PBDS i did, your first guess of what is wrong is way off base from what they want. i mean the scenarios are very general. it could be one of many things wrong, and you are supposed to pull the answer out of your hind end!!!
has anyone thought about asking The State Board if this thing is kosher? last i heard making a medical diagnosis was not in an RN's scope of practice!!!
