I am crossing my fingers for you. Can you give us any info on what kind of questions you had and how the new format was? I take mine next friday and I am getting very nervous.
Hi Yvonne! Well, I can tell you this, the NCLEX test is like no other test I have ever taken. You'll understand exactly what I mean when you take yours. I was questioned about blood administration (the one question I got that was "choose ALL of correct answers") I seemed to have a lot of prioritizing, emergency situations (priority) ESRD, dialysis, pre and post-op care, about six drugs, one math, one lab-type question (lithium toxicity--ANOTHER one which I am sure I missed) thallessemia (Other than thinking it was something to do with lack of something in the blood, yet ANOTHER I missed) It seemed at first I had a lot of easyish ones that I should have known, but wasn't 100% about, like questions about positioning (things we learn in ADN schools in our first semester) I had absolutely NO L&D, I had an ortho post-op, one or two diabetes, a few peds (developmental) no cancers, but I think I had a chemo question, one myasthenia gravis, six meds (one cardiac I knew, the rest I was clueless) I think I remember having a nutrition question, NO cardiac (which I was hoping I would get because I work on a cardiac floor and have really been learning alot about that lately) Something about hypothyroidism, and that's all I can really remember. It seemed that every other question I was presented with was something I didnt know!! I can tell you that having a good understanding of blood pressures and fluid vol overload and such will help, as I seem to remember thinking about that alot, but can't recall specifics. Some psych. OH--- I was so worried about ABG's, I spent all last night re-learning them-- not ONE question about ABG's. Oh, one last thing, know your diagnostic test preps too.
Say a prayer for me. As I recall all these, I feel worse and worse. :uhoh21:
