For me, one of the programs I applied to requires a C which is 75% in the pharmacology class and and a 90% + on the dosage calculation exam.
Knowing the exact numbers you need in order to have a chance on passing the class or get into a nursing program there is a lot of stress that comes with preparing for this class/exam.
So I am doing decent regarding the actual exams but it doesn’t matter if I don’t get a 90% + on the dosage exam.
The day finally came and I felt like I practiced all of the practice questions I had and I just had to keep relaxed.
I was doing well until I got to question 29 our of 40 questions. Syringes for insulin really stumped me. I hadn’t practice calculating insulin/units syringe. I prayed that the remaining question’s weren’t on this topic. So I finally passed the 2 questions, which I highly thought I got them incorrect and continued moving on. The last 10 or so questions were calculating IV infusions. These are fun for me so I know I was finishing up the exam strong.
So here we go.. I pressed the submit button and waiting anxiously for the grade… AND…. a 96% appeared on my screen.
I felt like the world just fell from my shoulders. I wanted to do a happy dance.
Now all my attention had to go to preparing for my Coronary Artery Disease project presentation next week and then my third and final exam in this class! I am zoo nervous but I will keep trooping on…
