I am 2nd semester BS-BSN student who wished to pass forward to 3rd semester but am being inhibited by POOR ERI nursing care for adults performance. Mind you, I received a 93% in Adult Med-Surg II, but blank out on ERI testing. It makes me feel ridiculous.
If anyone could help me, I'd be so appreciative. I have until next Friday to take it for the last time, and if I fail my 93 turns into a default 74 and I repeat the course
Thanks so much!

What's really annoying about the ERI is some of it's basically crap.
I scored 999 on their supposed "critical thinking" evaluation test. Out of 1000.
It said my reading skills were "at high risk".
I think it scored me at something like a 51.
I've literally been reading since age 3 (you could ask my mom on that one). Graduated cum laude for my first BS and currently have a 3.86 GPA.
If my reading skills are so bad, how on earth could I score ONE POINT below perfect? Or have the GPA I have?
CRAP!!!! All CRAP!!!
It did, however, assure me that my speaking skills were excellent.
I find it revolting that schools use this thing as a criteria for passing. It's ridiculous to me. Thanks for letting me vent.
The only recommendations I have are read the question carefully, eliminate the obviously wrong answers, and be sure you're prioritizing correctly. ABCs were important on the one I had - but I also got a bunch of nutrition and pharm questions too. Pace yourself and while it is timed, don't get hung up on the clock. I think a lot of people make that mistake and let it make them so nervous that they can't think straight.
