Yeah...online would be nice for those of us with previous degrees...foreverlaur...yes, my work as a nursing assistant bit me in the butt many times on exams...just study your book and pretend you know nothing, because surely you have seen that theory and practice are not always on the same page!

....

additionally...love the questions when there is no right answer...again play stupid. DONT OVERTHINK...even when the right answer is wrong. Critical thinking at its finest!

Geez. I hope I get this under wraps soon!! :) The questions are so silly!

Our program is:

1st quarter - assessment is 5 hours, clinical course is 7 hours

2nd quarter - clinical is 14 hours, skills class is 4 hours, pharmacology is 2 hours

3rd quarter - clinical is 14 hours, skills class is 4 hours, pharmacology is 2 hours

4th quarter - clinical is 14 hours

5th quarter - clinical is 14 hours

6th quarter - clinical is 14 hours

7th quarter - clinical is 20 hours

clinical includes actual clinical, lecture, and seminar

skills include lecture and lab

each is per week

each quarter is 10 weeks

program is 21 months in length (continuous)

so 2nd and 3rd quarters stink the most, then it gets much easier!!

Hahaha, yeah that question sucked. In fact that entire test sucked. That was the developmental, legal, nutrition ect exam I believe. I didn't do so hot on that one. I still passed somehow but not by much. My grades looked like a roller coaster. I'd get a 40 something on one test mid 30's on the next, 40 on the next test, back into the mid 30's. Luckily I got 9/9 on the quizzes and I pulled a 63/69 out of my rear end on the 1450 final and managed a B.

I believe the worst part of it is the "Select All That Apply" questions. I only got one of those correct the entire semester. The "Which Nursing diagnosis applies" question.

Depending on how thing go next semester I might continue my strategy for the last few exams in 1300 and 1450. In addition to not studying I would drink unreasonable amounts of beer the night before the exams. I do remember reading somewhere that alcohol kills the weakest brain cells first. Maybe that was an episode of The Simpsons. Either way.:lol2: Whatever works for you. Just gotta make it through the remaining 3 semesters, and then well another year for a BSN.:eek:

Y'all,

due to possible copyright infringement and

to prevent giving out answers to those who have not taken the test,

PLEASE do not post any test questions on this (very public) BB.

Thank you.

sorry....my sample question was very loosely paraphrased so I am sure no copyright infringement was committed. We don't get our tests back so none of our questions in this thread would be verbatim.

For the new students and others struggling with these questions, get a copy of fundamentals success by Nugent. This book will teach you how to dissect these questions and think appropriately to answer the questions properly.

If we didn't post test questions and/or material of a questionable nature a large number of Allnurses.com staff would be out of a job.:crying2:;):clown:

It is quite helpful to the volunteer staff to have members who read, comprehend and comply with the Terms of Service. ;) :clown:

My apologies as well... we also do not get our tests back and this test was a solid 6-7 weeks ago so it was very loosely paraphrased as well.

As someone who recently graduated from TRI-C...

1. take everything with a grain of salt.. its not that serious c=RN

2. last semester is the WORST... build up your knowledge so you are not struggling.

Good Luck!!!!!!

I'm applying for Fall of 2012. I'm waiting for my summer grade to post so I can apply. So what's next? After making the call do I wait for them to send me the information?

Back in the day they would send you a packet with info on getting set up to take the HESI-A2 exam. Now I believe they send you an email to your Tri-C address with the info you need.
