First Test

Today I had my first post test of the term. I was really stressed-out all morning long before the test. We have a Post Test every other Friday at 1pm during the term.

I haven't been in school for 2 years, and I have to pass every test with at least a 75%, so there's no room for any poor performance (not that I'm inclined) but it's just stressful.

One of my classmates quizzed me before we went into the testing room, and I felt a bit better after that. We have exactly one hour to take the test and then the computer will boot you off. The first 4 or 5 questions were pretty easy, and I was confident that I had chosen the correct answers.

There were 30 computer questions, and about 10 written questions. I finished the computer part in about 25 minutes, checked my answers one more time, and then submitted. It came back with 28 correct answers and 2 wrong for a raw score of 93.3%! Woo Hoo!

I'm sure I did well on the written part too, so it looks like I'm off to a good start . . .

Hey Doug, glad to hear you're back in school& doing so well. I hope you & Amy are feeling more at home in the new place. Find joy in the nursing program; there is some there, & I know you will be a blessing to the patients you will be seeing. Stress is so miserable, but there are promises to be claimed to fight against it

Ditto on Jack's comment. Soooo glad you are back at school. As I've said many times, you will make a great nurse. You'll bring that calm that is needed for the patient and their family. 2011 is not that far away.
