Is it normal for nursing instructors not to teach you the skills for test-outs? They only did one demonstration for a test-out skill in week 1.  It was Sterile Technique.  It seems counterproductive to run a 6 hour class and not demonstrate these skills or even talk about them. We only use the lab for test-out.

Welcome to nursing school which is mostly self teaching. I will be honest. Because we live in a world with Youtube videos and textbooks, they will become your best friend. You will need to review the skills that you will learn in the classroom, by reading it from your textbooks and watching youtube videos or ATI videos depending if your school uses ATI.   You will run in a lot of frustration until you start to realize that nursing schools can teach how they want and you will need to be more proactive in everything 🙂  I had to learn this as well in LVN school
