One of our graduates just took his boards Thursday and he said there were lots and lots of med questions on it--many he had never heard of
. The computer shut off at 75 questions and he was having lots of prioritizing questions by then (such as 'You are the community health nurse... which patient would you be most concerned about', etc., etc.), so the higher order questions at the end is a good sign.
One of the questions involved the TB drug INH. Our former student stated that it asked about a drug beginning with 'M' (he doesn't remember the name) and the question asked why 'M' is given with INH? Does anyone know what this mysterious 'M' drug is? ... and why it is given? I know that vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is often given with INH to decrease the chance of nerve damage in the extremities. Thanks for any information on this mysterious medication you can offer.
