    Then there are the Gallup ones and then another title of which IDK. The second one I failed. It was a tricky one I remember went something like, would you describe yourself as...

    more compassionate and having the IQ of a brick?
    or -
    less compassionate and a sloppy alcoholic?



    (not really) You get the gist, they all made you feel like all questions were a trap.

    Right? I felt terrible after not passing, but then a super-competent friend also failed to pass. We figure there must be some sort of personality quality quotient they are looking for, that we don't meet. (We have similar personalities) Or it's a crapshoot. Either way.

    I don't think this test is a good indicator of a good nurse. I think this is another bad way that the nursing career has changed. I took the test and failed. I've worked in several different areas of nursing. I agree with one of the above comments that this is a way of making these firms that come up with this stuff rich. I'm sure hospitals are peeling off alot of money to use this product. Not to mention keeping good nurses out of work. And they continue to try to find ways to cut budget spending in our hospitals. The hospitals that use this tool need to get a grip on reality.

    I'm glad I am not the only one who failed it. What a shame. It had nothing to do with nursing. What a waste of money. I have to wait six months to reapply.

    I hope I don't have to take this sort of test. It's just as bad as a personality test.

    Stupid test!
    Totally failed it today at a hospital right next to home to avoid my current hour plus commute. Been a RN for more than 10 years and more than 15 years of work experience prior to nursing. I feel like a failure that I couldn't pass this but should I? Just needed to vent a bit, so angry that I can't get a job based on this test.

    But I was invited to retake in 6 months. Which I replied with why because same test same questions and I will give the same answers sucks

    I was looking at a hospital website in Eagle Pass Tx tonight - found them in a nursing mag and they are offering HUGE sign on bonus' - $24K for nights! Upon looking at the job description, I see they require this test. They have positions for new grads as well. Now if experienced RN's cannot pass this "test" how can a new grad even hope to? I have 30 years in L/D and wouldn't even bother to apply.

    Edited to add: maybe this is why they cannot get nurses, thought the location is not exactly first rate either IMHO.

    I failed the stupid test. I have no idea how I failed it. What the heck were the "right" answers that's what I'd like to know. Most of it had nothing to do with nursing! I am so depressed. They were the only prospect that I have so far. There is no way I would even think about applying with them in 6 months HA!
