    I'm sure this will get deleted but I have a hard time reading how people think he will rest in peace. What he did was monstrous and barbaric and cruel. I wish the best and peace for the extended family but this was not a man But an animal. Call it what it is people!

    I have a BSN and MA and worked in hospice for 1 1/2 years. Thinking about moving back to SD and curious what RNs in hospice get paid out there?

    I went straight into PHN and am so glad to have avoided the aforementioned poster's description.

    This thread should be closed. It's gone to thread hijack heaven. Start another thread about the above stuff.

    What I did with those questions was always sected the answer C. I did not waste anytime on those because I had an entire test to complete.
    I wouldn't take that approach. When it comes to something you never heard of, try and narrow it down to the two answers that are most alike and pick the one of the two which seems most correct. That will give you a better shot than randomly choosing "C."

    Ask your doctor for a script for Inderal (10mg) ...PRN. It works GREAT with situational anxiety and you can think perfectly straight as opposed to taking a benzo. It sounds weird but I'm telling you it can make a difference.

    Yeah you don't get it right if its the seconded best answer.

    It's about getting enough right at a level of difficulty that is above the standards for an entry level nurse. So you may actually only get 50% right, but if the level if difficulty for them is above the minimum standard you pass. If you are getting a bunch if easy ones wrong, you are below that level and fail.
    That sounds about right. I'm so used to having to get a 90 or higher, that it seems strange to be able to get a large number wrong and still "pass."

    Congratulations!

    I would have to disagree with your statement "Don't get bogged down between two answers b/c you will get credit for the second best answer as well." This is NOT true.

    They must accept a low passing pctg. to "pass," as I know I did not get the first one right that often. In 90 questions I must have missed 25 or more ... yet passed? Maybe I am wrong. Regardless, thanks for sharing the link. I guess it is just the HESI that scores like that. Also, 90% of first timers pass the NCLEX so the passing grade can't be too high, I imagine.

    I think it's slightly irresponsible to suggest that people will pass the test if they narrow it down to 2 answers and go with either one. This test is also about critical thinking, and in many cases you should be able to narrow down the answer to the absolute correct one.
    I was of course assuming that the test taker had a good grasp on critical thinking. Yes, you are not going to cheat the system but anxiety can take over to the point that it clouds otherwise sound judgment.
