    What kind of disaster drills did you see on the test?
    Okay for example - in an external disaster drill who do you assess first?
    Patient A/B/C/D and it gives you patient age and condition. It uses the same question format for internal disaster drills. Personally I never studied these, didn't know the difference, nothing. I had to guess. Also, it we never studied this in school. I have Lippincott and Saunders review books - it's not in either one of them either. I searched my texts from school - nada.

    Nearly 50% of my questions were on delegation and prioritizing. You have 4 new patients - who do you assess first? This was an area that I did not study well. Other questions - 2 OB, about 15 med questions (diuretics, asthma meds, corticosteroids, Digoxin), 3 peds, about 20-30 disaster drill, renal diseases, glaucoma, risk factors for breast and cervical CA, no drug calculations) can't remember anymore. Questions are the same format as the review books - I studied about 4000-5000 review questions in the past 6 weeks. That's about it.

    You do not help the most critical first, but others less critical so they can then can help you care for others. Diaster drill questions on the NCLEx are tricky. I had disaster drill questions on my test also.

    Thanks so much for the helpful response!!!!! I've been studying about 200-300 questions a day. Its so nerve-wracking when i get on here and see people that passed and people that failed. I'm so stressed out. I need all the info I can get!!!!!
