Breath/Heart Sounds on NCLEX??

  1. 0
    I have heard that starting a certain date, the NCLEX will include breath and heart sounds which you listen to and identity. I have a few friends who took the test and said that the computer had earphones available, but none of them actually had a question in which you listen and identified any of the sounds. Does anyone know accurate information about this??

    I took NCLEX at the end of January and I had breath sounds on my exam.

    Any given subject may or may not be tested. Best to be prepared for any possibility.

    There were headphones and the possibility of having to listen to heart or breath sounds, but I didn't have to do that on mine.
