So, I am currently in my last semester and am taking pediatric nursing, maternity, along with trends (our intro to theory course, basically). I am having such a hard time with peds. We just took our Unit 2 exam today & the professor was not pleased with us. I have a feeling I failed. I studied but there were some questions regarding the developmental stages that through me off guard. I went from getting straight A's in both my classes last semester (I took advanced med surg and psych) to sitting around wondering if I even scored an 80 this time around. I am so anxious because this is my last semester and I don't want to fail. I am so close to finishing. Does anyone have any advice on how to study for peds?

Developmental stages and milestones are something that just kind of needs to be memorized.

Here's a pretty good video and you can look for more like it

 

Do you have any exposures to children? Not really fair but having some exposures helps a lot. Take any opportunities you might have to observe children and make a guess about their age (helpful if someone can confirm age after you've had a chance to observe). Or, if you are around a child whose age you already know, observe to see what types of things are being done at that age.
