love you guys
Thank you professor 😊
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
Corrected! Thank you for letting us know.
Thank you Matt. Godspeed!
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.
I want to learned more
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!
Thank you so much, I learned a lot 🙏
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
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?
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!
presumptives u feel like n/v, no period, fatigue, breast change…..before going to the doctor or taking a pregnancy test. Just go with what is in your textbook.
Much respect to you, for creating this web which really helps students ( Midwife) in their Examination prepation. God glorify you👏👏👏👏
please fix number 23. you can’t get the correct answer. Thanks for this.
Maternal test 2 Question 62 is wrong , thank you!
Hello. It is right. To find the due date you had to add 7 days to January 14, then -3 months. It is October 21.
Maternity test 3 question 14 is wrong. please revisit
It’s correct because the question is asking for the wrong statement among the choices.
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.
There is a navigation bar before each quiz. Please use that to navigate through the other tests.
Thank you Matt! May your tribe increase! keep up the good work!
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.
Please check out the other parts. :)
How can I download the questions
First off, your practice tests are truly wonderful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I wanted to ask a question about question #6 in maternal nursing quiz#4. I chose answer D right upper quadrant, and the correct answer says B right lower quadrant. The rationale states the landmark to look for when looking for PMI is the location of the fetal back in relation to the right or left side of the mother and the presentation, whether cephalic or breech. The best site is the fetal back nearest the head.
My question is, if the baby is breech (as noted in the question) and the best site to hear the HR is the fetal back nearest the head (as noted in rationale), then wouldn’t the upper quadrant be a better site given this baby’s presentation, since the head would be nearest to the fundus?
Thank you again.
Thank you so much! I learned a lot of things did know before.
thank you soo much!
52 Quiz8 and 54 Quiz7. Two sentences with the same question but different answers
Hi! Quiz 8 #52 has been updated.
Thank you Nurseslabs!
Very informative. Thank you so much.
Thank you for sharing
Have learn alot
Hello! Thank you for your contributions to nursing.
Regarding Maternity Quizi #6, the answer to the fifth question confuses me. I think its correct answer should be G2T1P0A0L1 (G is twice pregnant, T is full term, and its definition should be 37-40 weeks of birth; P is preterm, which is defined as birth at less than 37 weeks; A is abortion or miscarriage, and L is a live child) and its interpretation also conflicts with the contents of the systematic NCLEX-RN.
Thanks, I just hope it gets better!
Hi Alice, you’re right, the question is now updated. Thanks for letting us know! :)
