Cant wait until I take Essentials in Chronicity

  1. This is a very depressing course for me. All the hospice stuff and end of life care. It just reminds me of my mother who died 3 years ago and all the things I had to go through to make sure she had a peaceful death. I hope I do well on the End of Life section because It makes me so teary eyed reading that stuff and the holiday seasons without her doesn't help. Vent over.

    I take the test 12/26. That is the earliest I felt I could be ready without failing it.

    Good luck NCgirl35, I took it on 11th and made a "B". I am so glad I passed, I did not like the course contents too, so I studied for only two weekends and got rid of it. I just didn't want to keep studying it.

    Just make sure you are strong in the other areas, especially sensory impairments. The exam has 160 questions instead of 130. Again, good luck.

    I'm sorry for your loss. It's sad when life experience prepares us all too well for these exams! I'm sure you'll do just fine. Best of luck!!

    NC girl, how was Health Safety? Did you find the guides helpful? How long did you study for it? I want to move on to Chronicity but not sure if I'm ready for Health Safety.
