Good luck to you, thats a great hospital based program. I am a St. Francis grad myself, and I am very glad I started my education at a hospital based school, you get a edge on clinicals. Have worked with many nurses from Shadyside, they were all awesome! Keep in touch.....GO Pirates
You will be fine. I took it after being out of school for 12 years and did fine. It was a lot of word problems, reading comprehension and basic sciences. Things like what does a carbohydrate do? Hopefully they have not changed it since I took it.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I have my last 2 finals for this semester tonight and then I am off until May 2nd. I am in the evening weekend program.
I took the PSB today. I didn't think the math, verbal, or reading was that bad, but the science :uhoh21:!! Thank goodness I've had A&P and nutrition otherwise I wouldn't have known a lot of those. Still, what was with the electricity questions?
I also took it today, first i must say i liek the way that school is set up. i took my test in the Pharmacology lab. Noel did you see me i was the big tall geeky guy. Anyway i prolly failed the science wasnt hard neither was the reading but some of the math i had trouble with and the antonyms were trickey. WHat is the highest possible score you can get on that exam. I hope you did great NOEL good luck
Andy, were you sitting over by the door? I might have been seated behind you. :spin:
I saw your other post ( http://allnurses.com/forums/f198/psb...ml#post1625909 ) and wanted to comment that we have to get in the 75th percentile on each section. Meaning, if a number of other students have trouble with, say, science, then you could, hypothetically, have less that 75% right and yet still be in the 75th percentile. Hopefully, this will work to both of our's advantage. I'm sooo looking forward to receiving my scores in 2 weeks!
