help! Nurs Concepts 1

Hi. I'm CJ. I took nurs concepts 1 approx 1 year ago using all the material (books and everything) required by Exelsiors study guide and my letter grade was a D. What a shock. I really studied and felt prepared... so I thought. I am now taking a different approach and using this publishing company- which I really am enjoying and it seems to be great- thus far. The problem is when I talked with exelsior- they told me that a majority of their students that fail exams were using publishing companies. NOT the case with me last year. Anyway, I'm stuck in the middle now, I feel like I am preparing for the exam way better than before with istudysmart instead of just using exelsiors' content guide.... but how do I know what I am learning I will be tested on? Any advice or comments will help. THanks.

RE: help! Nurs Concepts 1

Hi Christi, My name is Becky and I am studying N. Concepts one also. I am working on the assignment now. There is so many questions right? I ordered Excel. Study guides too and have not received them yet. I am trying to locate Chancelor's study guide. They said they just guide towards the actual exam. So I am going to purchase some used ones. They sell new for $250.00 and most will sell them used for $100.oo which I am trying to locate now. I'll let you know what I come up with. Want to share assignment or are you finished with it already? Is that OK with you. 641 questions for an assignment takes a while I think. Feel free to email me at rebecca226@hotmail.com I have about 42 questions completed at this time and plan to get busy tonight and type some more answers in. Good Luck Becky and don't give up. you can do it.

RE: help! Nurs Concepts 1

Hi,
I'm Nancy. I took Nursing Concepts one about 3 weeks ago and got a C. I was not very happy with the C but at least it is an acceptable grade for the degree. The test was very hard. I did not use any study materials. As a matter of fact, I did not study at all. I just signed up for Nursing Concepts 2 with iStudySmart.com. We'll see how this goes. I plan to try to take this exam by the end of March.

RE: help! Nurs Concepts 1 guides

How do you go about getting the free guides? I have been an L.V.N. for 10 years now and the material doesn't seem to be too hard. There are some areas of course that I feel weak in and plan to review harder but it doesn't seem that bad. I am afraid that I am going to be surprised by the test. I hope not. What do you have to have to pass? Also, I am worried if I make a C on Nursing Concepts 1 will I be well enough prepared to take the boards when that comes up?

RE: help! Nurs Concepts 1 guides

I am planning to start the BSN program through Excelsior. Are you taking your courses through them as well? I am a medical assistant and I have 10 yrs clinical experience, do you find the course difficult from a self study stand point?
