Specializes in LTC, Rehab.. Has 5 years experience.

I'm going through OB right now FOR A SECOND TIME in a different program after getting dismissed because of Karen the clinical instructor from hell ??. Got an 80 on my first test, hopefully I do better on this next one. Last time I took the class, I carried an average in the low 80s throughout the 8-week course.

Specializes in ED RN, Firefighter/Paramedic.

Headed in for my final in just a little bit.  I have a decent amount of breathing room but still nervous.. 

Overall I didn't hate OB as much as I thought I would, but definitely won't be my practice environment as a nurse..

UPDATE: I've made a 72 on my second exam but managed to rock our Newborn midterm with an 88 bringing my average up by 4 points!! ??????

Did you manage to pass this beast of a class?

I actually ended up doing very well, but the OB class at my program is well established and the curriculum is vetted and continuously tweaked.  
 

I’m now in Peds, and quite worried..

Congrats!! and yeah, Peds is another beast of a class as well.....children are not little adults like some people think. For any hard specialty class I usually buy like supplementary guides to help me out, like the Reviews and Rationale Series, they break down the material into what you need to know and skip all the fluff. This book helped me a lot when studying for Peds. Check it out if you get a chance:
