I took the NCLEX on April 3rd. I passed. My advice is to know your prioritizing care....... This was hit hard on everyone in my class who has taken it so far. (We have all passed).
You are the RN in an emergency room, there is a disaster in the community and the following 4 patients are brought in which would you assess FIRST?
a) a 6-year old child who is SOB, has petichiae on his chest and is very restless
b) a 35-year-old male with an open fracture of the tibia who has a B/P of 165/98, a pulse of 122, and respirations of 35.
c) a 34-year old woman with an open head injury, who is confused and disoriented.
d) an 18-year old male with a crushed patella, who is in considerable pain and is requesting pain medication. He has been aggressive to staff since arrival.
This was an example of the questions I had a LOT of. All of the patients are critical, but which is MOST critical? These type of questions take a lot of critical thinking to answer!!!
I just made this question up, so there is no answer for it, but wanted to give you an idea of what to expect.
