I don't know how your instructor actually teaches, so I can't comment on that.
However, in nursing school
, there is far far too much information that can possibly be taught in lecture.
You are 100% responsible to for your learning.
The instructor presents the basic information and clarifies questions, but it is up to students to utilize their tools to study and learn.
The tests in nursing school are a whole different beast than any test you have taken before.
If you learn how to go about answer NCLEX style questions, then you have won half the battle.
Once you understand this, you will find you can actually answer some questions correctly, even on material you haven't ccovered yet.
Also, very little has to do with actual memorization, but with actual understanding
You can't just memorize your notes or power points because the test aren't asking you to regurgitate the information... the test are asking you to to apply it.
I don't know what to think about so many students being unable to finish the exam.
Is this everyone's first real exam in nursing school?
