About This Quiz

Imagine working your butt off to get through nursing school. However, in order to successfully finish the program and get that RN or LPN degree, you need to pass the nursing exam. You aced everything up until this point, but then you have a major brain fart during the exam and you totally forget the legal document that tells whether the patient wants CPR or not. Maybe you forgot that an evisceration is the protrusion of an internal organ through a wound or a surgical incision.

Sure, you know what to do when in the moment, but you totally freaked out while taking the exam.
