Study Tips for Passing Your STNA Test

Posted on February, 24, 2016 by admin

STNA ClassesYou’ve been working hard and taking classes to get your State Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA) certificate and now it’s time to take your test. While taking tests can be nerve wracking, if you’re well prepared they won’t seem as intimidating.

Part of being prepared means that you know how to study effectively. We’re going to discuss some practical study tips that will help you be prepared for your STNA exam.

  • Give Yourself Plenty of Time

There is no point and also no benefit in cramming all of your studying into one session. In order to get the most out of your studying, you should plan out and schedule your study times over a week or two. Make sure you give yourself enough time to cover everything. Really work hard to understand the concepts and not just memorize the questions and answers.

  • Find Your Learning Style

We all learn differently taking STNA classes. Find out what works best for you and then apply those methods to how you study. Are you a visual person? Try sketching diagrams or pictures. Do you learn best through hearing things? Have a friend or classmate read questions and answers out loud. Whatever your learning style, adapt your studying habits to reflect it.

  • Set Up Your Space

Typically it is easiest for people to study in quiet, comfortable spaces. Find a place you can study without distraction, and also a place that is comfortable. However, a word of caution; don’t get too comfortable or you might fall asleep! Some people like to play classical music while they study so that there is some level of outside noise to help keep them alert. Play around with it and see what works best for you.

  • Find Your Weak Points

Once you have studied your material for a while, ask a friend, relative or classmate to test you. This gives you a chance to practice answering the questions and also gives you a gauge of where you stand. If there are certain areas that you missed many questions in, then you will know where you need to spend more time.

  • Make Sure to Take Breaks

It is not productive to study for long periods of time without a break. Your mind simply cannot retain all the information coming in. Try setting a timer for yourself when sitting down to study. For every 45 minutes of concentration, take a 15 minute break. Get up and walk around, stretch, and give your mind a break.

Practice these tips when studying for your STNA exam and it will help make the process a little easier. Do you have any study tips that have worked well for you? Please feel free to share your tips for success and help others pass their STNA test with flying colors.
