    DNP, ARNP

    Having a Doctorate prepared me for many of the questions that were not covered in the material. the information to read through is very limited and not detailed. The RCA was mentioned but the Ishihara was never mentioned or any details regarding the RCA. IV pump and how they are used were not described. To many errors in this. I have 2 more courses to take. I hope they are better.

    Severely disappointed in these courses

    This is the 5th course I've taken as part of a package. The course material is too concise and lacking much information. Many of the questions on this quiz were not reviewed in the course. Lastly, quiz answers should be provided if the answer is wrong. Greatly disappointed in these courses overall. I am getting back into nursing after 6 years and feel I am being robbed of the information that should be available in these courses.
