    Hi. Question. I am currently a certified pharmacy technician. And I'll be starting school in jan 2013 for RN. I'll be taking pre requisites. Should I start going over some nursing books to familiarize myself and possibly get a headstart?? Or will it be useless? I'm shooting to make the best GPA possible. TIA

    edited to add: I found this link and there are two helpful docs to take a look at - it may very well be the .pdf (+ another doc) we were all looking for. No exact questions, just good basics, folks.

    Hi Goodie, that is the forum I looked at for the .pdf! Thank you for kindly posting it on here.

    Dametriss, I recommend that you focus on the classes you are taking. If they are pre-nursing (chem, micro, anatomy, physio) focus on those subjects, as those are very different and hardly overlap too much in nursing classes. Plus, nursing will teach you a different way to test and think and that may become frustrating. Take it as it goes. I know a lot of my classmates during 1st semester were frustrated because nursing is a lot different in that you can't just memorize, you need to be able to critically think and apply, choosing the best answer.

    I had maybe 5-6 pharm questions, 2-3 on very common medications SE/patient teaching. One pharm question was SATA where they gave you the medication and disease/condition. That question was a bit more difficult than the others. For pharm, I suggest you know common medications' SEs and patient education.

    I had 1-2 OB and peds. NO med calculations. TONS and TONS of SATA. Like 1/3rd - 1/4th of my test and I must admit that SATA are NOT my favorite. I also had many priority questions. My best advice for that is ABCs and know your expected findings and complications!

    Anyways, to everyone going to take it, study hard and efficiently. While taking the test, don't stress yourself out. Give yourself a break if you start getting anxious or you keep dwelling on some question you could not find the answer to. I passed with 75 ?'s on the first try, and I admit I had some questions that were so basic that I was sure I was barely threading along the pass/fail line. Stay positive everyone .
