I think everyone knows this by now, but I took the damn thing 5x..... I just passed. I have severe test anxiety. My teacher told me if I didn't relax, I wasn't going to make it through nursing school
. I made it. I think you have to sit down, clear your head and start from the beginning. Make a list of stuff you are confident in and stuff that you know you could brush up on. Start with the weaker list and focus on that daily. Mine was endocrine, psyche and maternity. The disk I had allowed me to choose whichever subject I wanted questions on, then I went back to my textbooks. The lady that I had as my review teacher said to take the question at face value. Do not put in "what if" All the information you need is right there. Delegation, I memorized this way. Please no offense to anyone it's just a way I learned to remember stuff. RN's get the patients that require assessment, teaching and discharge they are the head honchos;; LPN's get all patients that are considered stable and do not require the 3 that RN's have. They can do meds, dressing changes, etc.;; CNA/UAP get the left over little stuff that MA's can do Vitals, UA's, specimen collection, I &O etc. I studied stuff from previous tests that I was weak in and of course I only got 1 psych question, NO maternity and about 6 endocrine. Each time I took the test, I made mental notes. If I flunk, I have to look up Addison's and Cushings, I need to check on the question i had about newborns and Rhogam or whatever the case was. Just take your time. Next time you take your test, get a good nite's rest, eat a light breakfast, take a deep breath and focus. Look at the question at face value quietly talk it out to your self, throw out the answers you know are wrong and narrow it down. Good luck on your next try.
