Periop 101 Final Exam Advice? (2018 / 2017?)

  1. Hello!

    I recently began the AORN Perioperative 101 program and am looking for advice on what I should focus on for the final exam.

    So there's 4 main resources I've been given:
    AORN modules;
    AORN videos;
    and 2 textbooks (Alexander's Care of the Patient in Surgery & AORN Guidelines).

    I've read from older threads to focus on the summaries at the end of the modules. However, I believe those are obsolete since they haven't appeared at the end of my modules so far.

    I'm hoping someone who has recently completed this program can shed some light on this matter.

    Also, is the final exam still 115 questions?

    Any insight is greatly appreciated - thank you!

    Test questions can come from anywhere within the resources provided. Be sure to follow your student resources, which is where you will find study guides. The exam is 114 questions, 80% required to pass. Much like NCLEX, it is a question bank, so the person sitting next to you may not have the same questions.

    Hi The Study guides are not at the end of the modules, they are almost hidden in the MY AORN area. you have to download them, save them as , then print them out. Sort of like finding a buried treasure.
    I only happen to know this because a few of us new to the OR met with the educator and we then went on a scavenger hunt to find these study guides.
    Geez why do they make it so difficult!
