Quote from Smithbc1
As part of the exam, we sign a varification that we cannot discuss the exam questions.
I took the exam in, I think, 1999. I don't remember being asked to sign such a thing, and, even if I had been, I would not have signed it. We--that is, everybody in the OR where I was currently working who took it--all discussed the exam with each other afterwards. We all found out we got different exams. We all were SURE we would fail, but, we all passed.
It was hard, I remember, for this reason: As an experienced nurse, you KNEW what you would do in any given situation--however, what YOU would have done was often not a choice of what whoever wrote the exam questions would have done.
I hope to be part of future committees that write CNOR exam questions so that I can help to ensure that the questions can be more reality based, instead of "in theory" based. "By the book" often does not concur with real world situations.
