I had my second assessment return demo. Basically head to toe minus Neuro. The whole thing is worth 30 points. I didn't expect to be perfect and I wasn't, but I was surprised at how many points I lost. I got 5 points deducted... one point for each of 3 technical errors, one thing I forgot to do, and one she didn't see because she was writing. It doesn't seem right that I got 20 percent taken off on the assessment when about 98 percent of the assessment was done smoothly, efficiently, and correctly... so I am just frustrated.:angryfire I of course am upset with myself for forgetting anything at all, but I realize in our assessment demo environment I have a level of performance anxiety off the charts, though in clinicals I am getting less anxious.
I might even feel less frustrated if it weren't for the fact that my partner forgot nearly half the assessment, used the wrong technique for most things they did remember, and was just generally very nonfluid (stopping and thinking to remember, or saying oops I forgot....), and got only 8 points off.
Remember ladies and gents... this is just a rant (no need for flame throwers
).... I now return you to your regularly scheduled forum:spin:
