  1. Hi,
    Thank you for all of your hard work in putting these tests together!! Just a couple of notes:

    on maternal quiz #2:

    questions 1,7 and 24 said my answer was incorrect even though I chose the correct answer

    rationale on #21 includes rationale from #20

    rationale on #51 for C is labeled D

  2. thank you for all of your hard work to create all of these practice tests!! I just have a couple of questions re: quiz #4 from the Maternal Nursing Section:

    #18.) the correct answer states that from 33 weeks on, a mother would be seen q week, but then in the rationale below it states that from 28-36 weeks the mother is seen q 2 weeks…so there appears to be a bit of overlap there? just a bit confused :(


    #61.) the correct answer is shown as D but seems to contradict rationale…if those meds should be given when delivery is imminent (per rationale) does that contradict what answer D says about the baby won’t be delivered for at least 3 more hours? also, answer B rationale doesn’t really explain why B is wrong, from what I could understand.


  3. Hi and thank you again for all of these awesome practice tests!! I appreciate them so much!

    Just very confused on quiz #7 question #38:

    it shows the correct answer as a pudendal block may inhibit the ability to push…but in the rationale it states that the pudendal block provides anesthesia to the perineum, so wouldn’t that provide numbing for an episiotomy and isn’t that a common reason this type of block is used? I was unable to find info anywhere saying that pudendal blocks might inhibit ability to push. help? :) thanks in advance!

  4. Hi I found these very helpful. I wished there was a way for me to have a pdf copy of these so can keep on reviewing the questions offline

  5. Hi..thanks for your hard and generous work…actually am referring s many people to use this site for revision.
    Although I have a question,how can I save my unfinished work and come later to finish instead of it vanishing away and start all over again?.
    Again how can one monitor the progress?

  6. Note: Uterine enlargement is indicated as a presumptive sign in several textbooks. Obviously, this is unfair in how this inconsistency can cost losing a point!

  7. Much respect to you, for creating this web which really helps students ( Midwife) in their Examination prepation. God glorify you👏👏👏👏

  8. Thank you so much Professor for creating this website.

    This helped me hone my skills in Maternity Nursing. However, I need to learn other topics in Maternity Nursing as I am not satisfied with the results of my previous practice test.
    How can I open the other set of test. Please help. Thanks.

  9. The first half of this quiz was great, but then around question 35 it got to more pediatric stuff and I had to quit since I am doing OB and Newborn right now in class.
