What to Study when taking the Jurisprudence Exam

I have not heard from anyone who has taken the exam, so I am giving this information based on what I know about the exam. My understanding is that it is a review of Texas Board of Nursing laws, regulations, guidelines and policies. You are allowed to read these resources while taking the online exam since it is an open book exam. The Board has set up a handy resource list to help in finding the answers to questions. They have given students 2 hours to answer 50 questions.

Texas Nursing Jurisprudence Exam

The Texas Nursing Jurisprudence Exam is now available online. It will be interesting to hear what the applicants think of the exam (easy, hard, confusing, straight forward). I also wonder whether the applicants will consider themselves well prepared for the exam and if they believe they learned important information to prepare them for nursing practice in Texas.
