The ATI adaptive Pharmacology assessment went better than expected for my frist adaptive quiz this semester. For one, I ranked in the “Hard” category which is a wonderful start! Although it was 17th percentile, the fact that I made it to the hard was reassuring. This was something that went well. Something that I realized is I want to review pharmacology drugs in general, and review patient teaching and side effects. I found this great PDF with common medications nurses should know for NCLEX that I will start review soon to improve my testing abilities and knowledge in the future. I noticed there were areas where I guess on the answers without actually thinking it through on WHY something would be incorrect vs. correct. This is something I will work to improve on in the future. For my next exams I will pick a time where i’m not distracted, preoccupied, or stressed during the exam. I will create a calming environment for me to take the assessment, while being knowledgeable and honest when I’m in need of a break. These are a few things I will work to improve on in the future, while once again reviewing pharmacology overall to optimize my success in my future.
