first mat/peds test !

  1. First of all, this is my first post so.. hello everyone!:spin:

    I guess this post is sort of a way for me to vent and hopefully find some good support and advice. This morning I took my first mat/peds exam and did horrible. I'm a B student so I was disappointed when I saw that my grade was one of the lowest in the class. I studied hard for the exam and I felt that I had a good grasp on the material.. but after seeing my grade I guess I was wrong.. --I know that I've always wanted to be a nurse, but days like today really get me down... I know I'm quite capable of doing the work and moving on to become an RN, but seeing this test makes me wonder..

    First hello and . Second, how far are you in the nursing program? Test questions are worded differently than other tests. Get a nclex review book and answer questions on whatever subject you are studying. This can help you get used to the type of questions you will get in your tests. As you read you text book and listen to lecture always ask yourself what as a nurse should I be seeing and what as a nurse should I be doing? This will help you get a better grade. Good luck in future tests.
