I've been traumatized
When I got the materials, there was a pretest as part of it. The first frickin' question was: "The following is a sign/symptom of a diffuse axonal brain injury:". Then there were options to choose from. My thought: What the fuck is an axonal brain injury??? Turns out its a big brain injury that leaves the majority of people dead or in a vegetative state. And that questions was only the beginning.
ACLS has lightened up quite a bit. It has become a lot less intimidating than in past years. They really want you to pass. TNCC is not like that. Its a lot of information and if you don't retain it, too bad for you. You go back to the remedial class. Heh.
I was waiting with another nurse to do the practical test where you go through assessment and interventions in front of the teacher. The nurse I was with said she felt like she was going to throw up. What's the point of putting people in that kind of condition?
By the way, I passed it. Now I have PTSD.
