Development and Use of Challenge Exams for Clinical Laboratory Nursing 2: Part 2 Final Report.
Hattstaedt, Mary Jane; Isaac, Margaret M.
The report describes the development of a set of equivalency tests for students in Nursing 2 who have had prior clinical laboratory training or experience in pediatrics, obstetrics, or geriatrics. For each of the three areas the examination packet includes: the course clinical objectives, the challenge examination objectives, a self-study guide, a description of the method and the objectives of the examination, a list of instructions for the tester, a "Giving Care to the Patient" performance evaluation tool, other performance evaluation tools that might be used in the test (teaching/learning, nursing care plan, oral medication administration, and intravenous fluid administration), and possible question topics. (The obstetrics examination includes the above items for both care of the newborn and care of the mother during pregnancy, labor, delivery, and post partum.) Three appendixes, comprising nearly a third of the document, include: performance evaluation tools for intravenous fluid therapy, oral medications, a nursing care plan, teaching/learning, patient problems analysis, an annotated bibliography on challenge examinations in nursing, forms and their tabulated results regarding use of challenge examinations in other undergraduate nursing programs and students' past nursing experiences, and a narrative summary of the project.
