I have just been hired to work in a mother/baby at a large local hospital and I'm so excited about my new job. I was told I would have to take a competency test and I wasn't concerned about this until I read another thread on this site about PBDS testing...now I'm really scared about what will be expected of me on this test.
Has anyone recently taken this test? If so, can you give me an idea what is covered on the test? I believe I was told that I would take a test specific to OB.
I am returning to post partum after years of being out of hospital nursing (raised kids for a number of years and then returned to work in a physician's office setting for 5 years). Needless to say, my skills are a bit rusty but I'm sure that with some decent orientation, it won't take long to get back up to speed. I'm not a great test taker and an becoming more and more concerned about this test even though I was told it was not pass or fail.
Any insight anyone could give would be appreciated.
