I had my first exam in Assessment yesterday. The exam covered 8 chapters and I studied weeks in advance for it. The professor gave us a list of things to study in the review.... needless to say the way that she formatted the exam was no where near what she had told us to study.
The entire exam was multi choice and the questions were situational...
Mrs. Smith is complaining of an excruciating pain in her abdomen that has persisted for more than one week. What is the first step that you would take to assess this patient?
Considering the fact that the exam wasn't what I expected I did well. She went over the exam after all answer sheets were collected and I missed 7 out of a total of 50. I am upset that I missed 7- I shouldn't have missed any.
Anyhoo, I just felt like sharing with you guys. For those who are new nursing students- Good luck on any exam you take and make sure you verify the format of your exams
