I graduated May 2009, and that last semester the practicums were done in clinicals, observed by clinical instructor. As opposed to first semester, where practicums were done on lab days at the school. As far as testing, ANYTHING was fair game, whether it be from lab, clinical, lecture, or reading. My biggest advice in studying for tests, and I will go to my grave stating this same advice, I feel so strongly about it...is to do NCLEX questions, NCLEX questions, NCLEX questions. In fact, after block I, I rarely read any of the texts, I just studied my notes, powerpoints, and did..you guessed it... NCLEX questions. Can't really stress enough the importance of doing those NCLEX questions. I have several NCLEX review books, flash cards, and did the questions online from the textbooks (can be downloaded to evolve). Evolve is also a wonderful resource. And, those case studies they have you do.... study the questions. You may or may not see them again.
