I have started the study process for the Heath Safety Examination. I am currently only using Study Group 101 and have printed the new and improved 2014 Content Outline. In terms of content information in SG101 and the Content Outline, it is much more condensed in comparison to the other study guides I have used, so far. I don't want to understudy for this exam. I just see this examination as a "breath of fresh air" compared to the Transition exam, which was not such a walk in the park. In my opinion, this exam is looking like the missing parts I didn't get in practical nursing school along the parts that I already know about. Am I under-judging the difficulty of this exam?

Well, I felt the exact same way when I took the exam. But, I barely passed it....probably because nursing had change so much since I was in LPN school back in the dark ages; probably because I was in a what-we-do-at-the-job mindset; or probably because of a little of both. After I walked out with a C, my thought was "maybe I'd better have a look at that again".:down:

You probably won't have that issue because based on your experience, your LPN education is far more recent updated than mine was when I enterd the program.:) Just keep in mind that, like the Transitions exam that "wasn't a cake walk", EC writes their own nursing exams (based on textbook theory, of course). Once I erased my previous mindset, I was able to zip right through those exams, and with better grades (I might add), because I knew what to expect alone the 'lines of questioning'.:D

Very wise words right there and it's what I experienced as well. I would advise anyone that is reading this, to heed them.
