    Ask yourself 4 question:

    What's the disease?
    What causes it?
    How do I treat it?
    What Am I going to teach my pt?

    It will help you soooo much! It help me get through my med surg and nclex style test!
    Always answer your question with ABC's, Maslow hierarchy, and Nurse Process.

    Life saver tips! Good luck!

    First thing is BREATHE...you can only tackle one task at a time...my other question is WHY are you studying for the NCLEX at this time??? I suggest you tackle the Med Surg component FIRST, that is the short term goal. The next goal-semi long term-is to pass the NCLEX. Don't put the cart before the horse, ok??
    All the teachers in my school highly recommend studying for NCLEX information to study for tests. All of our questions are NCLEX format so it's very helpful.

    ^How can you study questions that you may have no idea what the answer is before you get the material???? That is what my response was about. Not about the format...it doesn't help to study for something wayy in advance, or too later either....I come from instructors with THAT school of thought.

    im on med surg right now bro its not hard just get the idea of the pathology of the disorder and focus more on what YOU as the nurse are going to do for that pt. focus more on the intervetions, s/s, drugs, thats what your test are on

    I purchased the "Med Surg Made Incredibly Easy" & "Med Surg Demystified" books off of Amazon & they've helped me understand the material tremendously!!!
