i got a letter the other day from my program that said something like........."we're just doing a study to asses the effectiveness of our prerequisites. if you would please fill out this survey and drop it off..........and oh yes, we've arrainged a scheduled time for you to answer some test questions on a computerized program. you will be alloted three hours, although, it shouldn't take you that long. remember, the survey is anonnymous (they didn't say the test wasn't) it's just part of a 2 year study."
i have heard that some schools
are testing or getting ready to do their tests on computers, maybe that's all it's about.
who does a survey for three hours?
is the test the survey or part of the survey, i'm confused
but that is nothing new.
they also said to try to give notice early if you can't make your scheduled survey so arraingments can be made to have you rescheduled.
books have been purchased
uniforms paid for.
tuition paid for.
had two nursing information sessions that did not mention a three hour test before your first class.
so is this required? i believe i'd be asking a few questions about it, acting more like i was really interested in getting it right rather than being concerned about it, if ya know what i mean, lol this is where all the psych stuff you love so well comes into play, it goes both ways. but seriously i would ask if this is something that can or will be held against you if you do poorly on it.
another thing to get ready for in my experience so far is, learn to go with the flow in nursing, things charge all the time. for example, in my program, one of the instructors father became seriously ill and we ended up changing the whole schedule around (did diabetes instead of cardio, etc) even ended up changing where we went to clinicals.
anybody else have a similar experience?
no, but i'd bet it has to do with future computerized testing.
