Health Assessment Lab Final...eeks!

  1. I'm a first semester nursing student and I have my Health Assessment Lab final in the morning. I have to do a full physical examination on a "patient", all oral and performing everything. There's so much to know; it will probably take about 40 minutes. I know I will pass because I know the material and procedures, I just get so nervous during stuff like this. I couldn't even eat today because I had no nerves are totally shot. Whew...just venting! Goodluck with finals everyone, this semester is almost done with.

    Just go from head to toe, that will help you not forget anything.... this is probably too late, but I am sure you did just fine!

    Yeah, I had to just get over my nervousness and do it. Ended up getting 114 out of 116 points, not too bad =)

    That rocks, CoolKell10! You just needed to get that under the belt and over with experience in the lab and I bet the rest of the verbal lab exams will go much smoother for you this semester! Great! And keep up the good work!

    Thank you! It's such a relief to have that over with and out of the way. I know that my other finals (Patho, Gerontology, and Health Assessment) will be hard but I'm not too worried about it, I can do it =)
