Today was my first test of 2nd quarter. Let me tell you, it blew most of us away. I know I passed, but the questions seemed to be just be pulled out of the air!
I know that nursing school
tests are hard because they want the BEST answer. But these tests didn't reflect the outcomes really or what we read/heard in lecture. We did a big unit of pharmacology in lecture, reading, and on the computers. We were told to study all forms of the laxatives exhaustively. There was ONE question of laxatives on the test. We were told to study the drug laws, schedules, pregnancy categories, etc... in depth. There was NO question on that. I mean I know the info is good to have but why is it not on the test??
The truth is we have no idea what is REALLY gonna be on the test. They have these test assessment things where we can learn how to decipher a question. Well, I know how to decipher a question. There are some questions in which you either know the answer or don't. A test-taker assessment isn't gonna help for that.
Thanks for letting me vent....now I just wait for the grade!
