It's the same thing that you are talking about that probably came with your book, but instead of Med-Surg, this is Peds.
The MEd-surg ones weren't too bad, but I don't think I learned anything from them. They took a lot of time and I feel that I could've better spent that time reading. The Peds ones are ridiculously hard and not well organized. They will tell you to sign into period of care 2 and watch a video and then answer questions related to the video, but since it's in real time, you might have to wait 30 minutes for the video to appear. BUT...they told you the wrong period of care, so you have to go into other periods of care and wait 30 minutes and see if the video ever appears. It'll say at the beginning of the exercise that it should take 20 minutes, but the video won't appear until you've been on the floor for 30 minutes, so how can that be?
At the end you have to print off the evaluation to show that you haven't made med errors and that you checked the patient's armband, etc., but they have misspelled some of the names of the meds in the program that checks your work, so even if you have it right, it counts it wrong. (example, morphine prints out morpine on the evaluation check sheet and since you gave the patient morphine (spelled correctly on the MAR) you fail. GRRRRR!!!
We are all frustrated and understand that the instructors want to see tangible evidence that we've been studying, but we would rather write a paper or have a pop quiz or do workbook pages because we are all so fed up with these.
The program in theory is a wonderful idea, but I wish we could d/c them until the kinks are worked out.
(We have 5 due on Thursday, it took me approximately 30 hours to complete them, mostly because of program errors, and now I'm behind on my reading.)
I was just wondering what others think about them.
