However, as the nursing board exam date draws near, more attention should be given to  specific topics.  To supplement what we have given,  we will be giving those who are reviewing for the nursing board exam this July the specific topics they need to cover.  

First and foremost, a candidate to the July 2010 Nursing Board Exam should have covered the basic concepts in nursing. Included here are:
  • Definition of Nursing

  • Roles and Responsibilities of the Nurse
  • Roles of the Public Health Nurse
