For the last several years Exam Master has been applying our expertise learned working with other health professions to help Physical and Occupational therapy programs in three important ways:
- Academic Readiness – identifying prerequisite knowledge gaps in undergraduates before classes begin
- Pre-Matriculation Refresher – correcting knowledge gaps in graduate-level students before classes begin
- Student Success Program – designed to give new advanced health professions students the tools they need to succeed throughout the curriculum
Among other things we can help you identify at-risk students so that they can be given the support they need early in the curriculum.
Advanced Practice Nursing
We applied much of the experience we have gained working with medical schools, pharmacy schools, and PA programs to support the preparation of advanced practice nurses for demanding careers. Resources include:
- Readiness assessment – for incoming students for whom it may have been years since they took their last biomedical science course.
- Academic Manager – our testing platform delivering an extensive set of challenging clinical-based test questions with explanations that can be used for self-study and formative assessments.
In partnership with Emory University, we also provide APRN programs with an online body systems clinical review that is both thorough and comprehensive. It is the perfect segue to your students preparing for their nursing certification examination.
