    Health Safety / Old NC1 Exam - Nsg Process, Health Wellness and Illness, Environmental Safety, Biological Safety,Med safety, Psych. Safety

    Health Differences-/Old NC2 exam- Nutrition, Elimination, Oxygenation, Fl & electrolyte Balance, Activity, Mobility, Sleep

    OB is Reproductive Health or the Old NC3
    Med-Surg is pretty much all of the Health Differences Across the Lifespans (or NC4-6) which includes information on Peds within each course.

    Hope this helps.

    As you can see from the breakdown that Felicia provided, Excelsior does not break down their exams according to the traditional subject listings. Developmental differences (peds and geriatric populations) as well as pharmacology, are integrated into each test.
