LPN-BSN PhaseII CSM Exams Discussion - page 2
Hi guys, I thought it might be nice to have just a discussion on the exams for people who are currently in the process of taking them or done taking them that can give us tips on the four CSM Exams:... Read More
Oct 17, '12 by logank622, LPNCongrats on the 87! I got lucky - I found the OB module from 2006 on eBay for $25 and should get it today. I definitely need the module for that one! Good luck on 224! I'm planning to apply for the Nov 1st deadline also.
Oct 20, '12 by NurseK1mThanks LoganK622! And that is awesome you found module for so cheap, I am jealous! I am starting to hear some people say they didn't pass the med surg even with the module and it's starting to worry me. Did you use the module and pass? Can I ask how many hours you spent on studying? I feel my brain won't take in information anymore.
Thanks 2012RN for your tip.
Oct 22, '12 by logank622, LPNQuote from NurseK1mI didn't use the module - I reviewed my notes from med surg in my LPN program. I studied an hour or two every night for a week before I took it. To help me study, I made a chart listing condition, etiology, symptoms, labs, and nursing considerations for each of the body systems. (I find I remember better when I write the info myself instead of reading what someone else wrote.) My notes still weren't enough - I barely passed. You might try getting the textbook that was used for the course and studying from that as well - that's what I'm doing for OB in addition to the module.Thanks LoganK622!

Oct 25, '12 by logank622, LPNI passed OB with a 94%!! I used a TCN module from 2006, which was a huge help despite its age. I did far better on this test than any others, which is strange because:
1. I have absolutely no interest in OB nursing, which made studying and retention quite a challenge
2. I felt the material was harder than the others (even considering that I'm not interested in OB, it was still harder)
I'm so glad to have those challenge exams done! Next step - applying for Spring 2013!
Nov 2, '12 by NurseK1mI've just passed my last CSM nursing exam Nur224 Nursing for Adults with 86% using the TCN module. Good job logank622, for passing and good luck on apps!
I think the module definitely helped. Literally, if you study the module material and focus on their quizzes and practice exams, you'll pass. I am now waiting for ISU to pre accept me for the LPN-BSN program for Spring 2013.
I'm so excited right now!
Does anyone know how they set you up for clinicals? I already have a location that was under their location list, who have contracts with them, but what do I do now? I really don't want lag time when I start in Spring.
Jan 8, '14 by NursenbeeHi NurseK1m,
Have you started in the spring of 2013, how is the program so far? Please I would love to hear. I am thinking about ISU and I'm looking for positive outcomes. Thanks
