Pre-reqs are important!!!

  1. I probably only need to remind myself of this but i figure there may be others out there like me. So here goes, during anatomy 1 i really was annoyed that i had to learn the crainial nerves, where they exist the brain, how to exam for whether they are functioning or not, but lo and behold, i was reading an nclex review book and one of the questions was: A nurse is examining trigeminal nerve V what is the nurse asking the patient to do? the answers were close eyes, puff cheeks out and something else. I cant remember, but i couldnt believe that it was on there, now i feel really bad for not putting enough into anatomy. i plan to go back to my a&p book and review a couple things. well i just wanted to share that with everyone...... bye for now

    Thanks for this. I hope I learn stuff really well, not just learn it until the class is over. :uhoh21:

    Yep, I just started Nursing school (ASN) and the first day they gave us handouts on the cranial nerves for health assessment.
