    First time, I failed btw I had range of motion, empty urinary drainage bag, and pericare on a female with an indwelling catheter. I was trained in Tennessee and challenged the test in Florida, in my training I never encountered the last two skills.

    Second time I had super easy skills. Transfer from bed to chair, ambulate ten steps, and weight patient. Super easy, I passed with flying colors. The girl who was testing with me had bed pan, transfer from wheelchair to bed, and blood pressure. My arm was numb for a half hour after the test. She retried blood pressure three times on the same arm, needless to say, she failed.

    I believe I had radial pulse, ROM for shoulder/arm, and making an occupied bed.

    In WI, we also had the 70 question test where only 60 were weighted and ten were questions to gauge answers for future tests.

    1) A Measurement (For me it was BP)
    2) Hand washing (everyone has this)
    3) Occupied Bed-Making
    4) Peri-Care
    5) Foot care

    3-5 are randomly drawn.

    We had a written test and then the skills portion. I was so ridiculously nervous! I had radial pulse, hand washing, nailcare and transfer with gait belt from the bed to wheelchair. I live outside of Pittsburgh, PA.

    I took mine in NY, my name was on the registry after 1.5 weeks I received my certification a week and a few days after

    I had ROM arm, urinary output /recording, and perineal with catheter care - you know I just realized I got the same ones as your son ^ I forgot to close the curtain on one of them for patient privacy
