NRP online examination

  1. 0
    I remember the last NRP test I had to take was a written test and it was much easier!

    I'm doing the online test right now and I only got to part 3 of part 12 and I failed already. Had to repay the $23 and start all over.

    any advice tips? I don't want to have to do that again... err.

    I did the same thing. I sat with the book, a study guide and a coworker and was sweating bullets everytime I hit submit. Section 3 is KILLER.

    You have the book, right?

    I feel for you. Section 3 was the worst, but there are some very tricky questions in some later chapters as well. Keep the book with you at all times.

    I only missed 3 questions total in the whole thing. Keep the book with you, look up each question.

    I'm doing an online NRP refresher type course before I have to go do the on site skills validation course.. I'm on Chapter 2 and I'm really confused about something and wondering if anyone can give me more insight...

    I have been NRP certified before through a hospital where I was a nurse extern on a L&D floor...

    As I'm going through chapter 2, there is a section on suctioning the trachea... as I'm reading the procedure on what to do and taking notes... all of this seems a little out of the scope of a RN and has me worried... I feel like inserting a laryngoscope, inserting an endotracheal tube... is that within the scope of a RN?

    I guess what I am asking is this... can anyone who has had to put their NRP skills to use in a real life situation tell me if a nurse was the one putting in the ET tube/laryngoscope...

    I'm a little concerned about if that is an expectation... if it is then I'll go back and find a way to practice it before I get to the skills validation course...

    Thanks!

    It is my understanding that there are few places where RNs are trained to intubate. That being said, all RNs need to understand the correct technique to be able to assist the intubator. I have done intubation in skills drills but at my last recert our instructor very specifically stopped short of having us intubate as part of the megacode, focusing on the steps that we would be expected to know and practice within our scope.

    I would check with the facility you'll be/are working for. If they don't teach RNs to intubate I can't see that it would be part of your exam in practice.
