    I have heard of Allied, but I don't know much about it. I have decided to take the CNA test as a "challenger." In the state of Fl, you don't need any number of training hours to take the test, so I have been studying on my own and working with a nurse to prep me for the practical. If anyone has any advice for me, I would appreciate it. I take practice test after practice test on the written portion and seem to pass them all. It is the practicle that I am concerned about.

    Quote from coolpeach
    I just finished nutrition online, and it was a tough course. I have found that with online courses you never know what your going to get. I have taken some which were useless. The professor basicaly gave tests which were the chapter review at the end which already had the answers written in. I have taken online courses which were major confusing, and tests came out of the blue (the good news is your allowed to use your book). The nutrition class I took was awsome because you actually had to learn to do well, and the tests made sense.

    If I were you I would email your instructor and tell her your concerns. Asks if she posts an online review. With online courses you are allowed to use your book, but if she posts a review it would allow you to concentrate on stuff the instructor feels is important.
    I did e-mail my instructor and expressed my concerns. She only gave us 30 min. to take a 20 question test. There was not much time to use my book. I think that was her intention. As far as the test questions went, a few of them were from the 4 review tests that were offered. We did have a lot of material to review in addition to the review tests. I feel more calm today than yesterday. I have to take this class on as a challenge, know that I have a tough instructor, and just do my best. There is no giving up here! This is my livelyhood! Thank you all for your responses!

    I need some guidance.....I have decided to make a career change from education to nursing and am very passionate about it. Nursing has always been something that I wanted to do but never had the time to pursue it. Now, I am beginning to take my prerequisites to get into the program. At this time, I am working full-time at my children's school, and we will be entering summer vacation in 2 weeks. I am taking 3 online courses. Nutrition, Art Apprec. and Sociology. What I am most stressed about right now is my Nutrition Class. I have a good general knowledge about Nutrition. I have been "nutrition smart" for 15-20 years now. I have been working full time, and studying obsessively for a week now. I took my first quiz today in Nutrition (4 days early) and did bad. 70%...a C or D. I am horrified! I am an A student!!!! I froze during the online test, and non of the questions were what the instructor had prepared us for! Am I jumping the gun to be full of anxiety already? I am just not used to doing this bad on a test! I need advice! I am worried that this is my first Nursing course, first test and I bombed it! Can anyone relate or give me advice? I hope that I haven't made a huge mistake. I really want to do well and make this work! HELP!
