    Hey all
    I am a 24 year old male nursing student. I am just finishing up my 1st year in the UWO/ Fanshawe BScN program. there are 8 guys in a class off 120 ppl at my campus. Next year, if all holds true we will have even less.
    Been doing a lot of research as to what to do with my degree once I am done. I am probably going to move to Florida ( u dont have to write the state exam if u are already registered in Ontario.
    Anyways, thats me just wanted to say hi

    25 yr after nursing school, let me give you a piece of advice. I note not much has changed in the approach to testing when I go for CEUs and such. Here's one of the keys:

    1.) Don't get panicky. Easy for me to say because I don't suffer from test anxiety. Get some low dose beta blockers from your doc if you are on good terms for these sort of situations on an as needed basis. Get a good sleep.

    2.) Watch for cute little tricks like slipping in a "not" or something in the question.

    3.) Many questions are somewhat ambiguous, ie "what is the best answer?" when 2 or 3 answers may be true. Value judgement, lack of information in the scenario can throw you off.

    4.) Most importantly: Very often 4 answers are given. You can usually quickly throw out 2 of the 4 answers off the bat if you've studied. Of the remaining 2, sometimes you have to hold your nose and choose one. Now, when doing this always imagine what some horrible menopausal nazi in a pointed bra and a permanent scowl would expect. You will be right more often than not.

    Hope this helps
