I completed the WOC program last June at Cleveland Clinic, did the on-site preceptor program. I haven’t signed up to take the exams yet as I am terrified that I am not prepared. I did well in the program, have continued to study, and typically have what I would consider a “normal” level of test anxiety. But this set of exams has me frozen. Can anyone who has taken the exams in the last couple of years please tell me if they are crazy difficult, easier than you expected, etc? I’d appreciate knowing your experience so I get myself to sign up for the exams and get through this. TIA

Hi AngelKissed!

I went through the Cleveland Clinic program back in '16 and felt it prepared me very well for the exams. I would not describe them as easy but they were similar level of difficulty of the Cleveland Clinic exams. If you have test anxiety, scheduling more than 1 of these tests on the same day may not be the best idea unless you'd like to get them over and done with. Best of luck! You will do great! You are prepared!

You just gotta do it! They certainty aren't any harder than the NLEX. I found the flashcards from WOCN very helpful, but definitely not necessary. I mostly studied from my school materials. I recommend starting with the one you feel most confident about, then take 1 test every 2-3 weeks. I thought the ostomy test was by far the easiest, but I've also had a ton of exposure.
