Clinical Exams

I have bachelors degree in Business administration and have decided to go into Nursing also. I have taken all of the prerequiite courses in addtion to A&P; Iand II and also Microbilogy. I am currently working towards being an EMT-Basic. I have heard that the two day clinical is very intense.My question is that will an EMT have enough 'clinical' experience in order to sucessfully complete the clinical exams being offered by excelsior? I have noticed that a lot of the students taking this course are mostly LPN's. Is it possible that after taking some of the Nursing Concept classes, to be able to work as a student nurse in a hospital just to be able to gain more experience in the clinical side of the Program. Your comments and advice will be greatly appreciated!

RE: Clinical Exams

I am a paramedic as well as an LPN. As an EMT basic, I am not sure you will have all the hands on that you will need. Specifically you will need to know how to insert catheters, IV's etc. However...Moore educational does have a practice clinicals where you will be taught what you need to know for the clinical portion of this program. My advise is to contact your recruiter and get all the information on this. Hope this was helpful.

In our hospital they have nurse assistant positions just for nursing students. You rotate units that way you get experience in floor nursing, OB, critical care, er, etc.

RE: Clinical Exams

Any ideas on how to get extra clinical practice if you are working full time in a non-clinical setting. Nursing internships? I am in Texas.

Springhouse publishers puts out a CD-ROM titled Nursing Procedures. This CD has almost any procedure you can think of on it and it walks you through all of the steps with video on your PC.

I also have the CD-ROM from Springhouse, it is very helpful. A good investment.

RE: Clinical Exams

Being an EMT-basic I am also concerned that if I go thorugh all of the training I won't have enough clinical time to pass that part of the exam, and massachusetts is usually a pretty uptight state to get certifications in.

Is that 2 day clinical by Moores avaliable in all states?????

Hi! Unfortunately the MEPrep(clinical prep) is only located here in Nashville in our office building. Our nurse, Carma would be happy to talk to you about the clinical exams. If you'll call our office building at 800-737-2222 and ask to speak to me (Emily) I can give you her phone number.

The clinical exam, CPNE, is a 2 1/2 day exam set in a hospital. The first part is a lab component to test your competency, you will the need to pass 3 out of 5 patient care situations (PCS). Good Luck
