The exam was 75 questions on: The aging adult, Stress and Adaptation, End of life/Grief, Etc...i got 90%, but 6 of my classmates failed (<80%). i dont even know how i passed! 60% of what was on that test was not on our PP's, notes or even assigned readings!
why do teachers do this??

It is all about teaching critical thinking. Taking what you do know and applying it to the unknown. I think it is all prep for the NCLEX. I could be wrong but I really think this is why they do this.
Or at least this is what I tell myself.
CONGRATS on passing with a 90%!!

thanks! but i still feel bad about those who didn't pass:-(
i did notice that most questions were "Nclex style," one of the questions was asking: what activity was recommended by the nurse for an older adult with loss of balance?
Answers were light weight lifting, standing on one foot, sit-ups, or swimming. That's not in the book!! i just figured it would be swimming because it is different from everything else, plus they can't fall:-), but it does make u think!!
