Pharm Final next Wednesday...SCARED!!!!! (m)

  1. Our final had originally been scheduled for today, but the instructore realized that cramming all we needed to know into just 9 days wasn't going to work. We started Pharm 2 weeks ago and so far have had 4 tests (Of which I got 85% or above on) and had to do 4 med cards (We get 5 points each) and then the oral medication return demo(Passed the 1st time around!!!) Throughout this whole time I have had all 3 of my kids come down sick with fevers, then my hubby. We start clinical Monday but then once we take our Pharm Final on Wednesday if we don't get 85% on the final we are booted out of the program! I am so scared and nervous. In all my course work so far I have gotten 90% or above but because of Med Math (4 days of it before we started Pharm and we carried over the points) I am only at 89% right now and even if I get all 20 points from the med cards and 10 points on my parenteral return demo I'll have a 90%. Even with that I still need 85% on the final (Everyone does!) There are about 7 people who have a deficiency notice and they already let one gal go because she was so far down she couldn't have made it (That and she failed oral med administration 3 times in a row...) But I am so scared! Any words of wisdom?? I have to study for the final, my IM injection return demo (They give us 3 meds to study and they will test us on 1 of them-we got Toradol, compazine and demerol) we just won't know which one we'll be tested on. Then we have to give an injection. I'm more scared to give than to get! Any tips??

    Anyways.....counting down the days!

    Off to read my chapter on insulins.
