90 questions..last one right...I am so worried.

  1. i know, same story, different person.

    i had 90 questions...hard as hell! - that about sums it up.

    here's the highlights:

    mostly priority and delegation
    several questions about diet (picking a food item for a specific problem)
    no drug calculations
    some medication side effects
    several patient placement questions (which room/ roommate to stick a certain patient)
    no alternative style questions, all multiple choice


    i graduated dec 16, studied a couple of hours every night for about 2 weeks and took a 3 day review class, but i still felt like all the info so jumbled up i didn't recognize it.


    i am definitely not feeling really good about it, but i am trying not to worry to much (not doing very good though). i figure i can't change it anyway, right?

    You had a lot of high level questions...that's always a good sign.

    I graduated on Dec. 20 and I am STILL waiting for my ATT! :angryfire

    Good luck and be sure to let us know.

    I have to say I'm very glad we took a pen and paper test. I was in the class where they were sure they it would on computer by then. (it turned out that it was the next year) I went into it being told that "80% of the people who took it the first time passed" I looked around the room at the other 199 people and decided I probably wasn't in that 20% percentile. Thank God, because we didn't our results for 10 weeks

    I feel for all you taking your test now. I thought it was was bad when it was 2 days and the next time you could take was 6 mos. (we all had the same test and finished at the same time)

    Good Luck!!

    The point being, we didn't have a choice about when we were ready. Good thing too, because I might never have been ready!
