    Hi everyone!

    I took the written test on 4/20/11, and we were told that we would get our results at the end of July! It seems like it's a very long process right now, due to a huge number of applicants :-/

    Hi PRN22, when did you take the written test? I'm not sure what is on the oral interview, but I am going to focus on prioritization scenarios, signs and symptoms of different disease processes and what to teach for each of them, the 5 patient rights, etc. Read the previous posts on this thread, there is more info from people who already took the oral exam. Good luck!
