I'm sure you guys hear this a lot...

  1. I am taking my state test tomorrow, in Ohio, for STNA. I completed classes in February, and immediately got a job in home health.

    I'm nervous about the skills part. Not so much the written ;D

    My question is; what 4 skills did you all get?

    I'm trying to see how often certain ones come up. Thanks!!

    I took mine 3 years ago, so it's been awhile... but I think I got handwashing, ROM, pulse, and I can't remember what else.

    I remember how nervous I was, too, but honestly it's really not bad at all! Just relax and take deep breaths, and you'll do fine.

    Good luck!!

    i took mine on June 19th... i had
    1. Denture Care
    2. Weighing an Ambulatory Res
    3. Oral Temp, Pulse, Respirations
    4. Perineal Care on a Female
    my toughest one was #4, and that is the one that i missed one on.
    up until the test, i was SO stressed about everything! and even while i was taking the test, i was searching my brain for any tiny little detail i had missed..but in all honesty, the instructer is most likely NOT focusing on the miniscule details ur worried about!

    I had handwashing, TPR, and haircare and wheelchair to bed. That was Cincy a year ago. Too easy and the testers were really nice. Strict but still nice and talked to me afterwards and gave me encouragement.
