I keep getting asked why I failed. We now have to sign a non-disclosure agreement with the school when we test and are not allowed to discuss specifics on social media. I also would like to add again this is not affiliated with any school, exam, or hospital.
I failed both lab stations on Friday night. I don’t really know what happened. I had bought the new lab kit from the school and watched all their videos. I had practiced and practiced very hard. First station I had were the meds. I forgot to label a syringe and failed. 2nd station I got the catheter. I set up my stuff and started. I was IDing the patient when I thought oh shoot I forgot to gel my hands. I don’t know if we are allowed to start over once we begin so I gelled my hands and continued. In the end they failed me because I did not gel my hands before touching my “patient”.
Day 2 I failed my fist PCS for not writing x1 during PCS on the careplan outcome. This killed me because I knew better. I don’t know why I was making such stupid mistakes. I did recover mentally and passed my next PCS. Then I had to repeat the labs. I got the wound and passed. I then had the meds again. I didn’t make any mistakes but ran out of time. Game Over.
