    X'ray verifies the placement of NG tube in the stomach in the initially. The pH is done each time liquids or medication are administered, and once a shift for continuous feeding. The pH is also used to monitor the advancement of tube into the small intestines. pH testing is best suited for distinguishing between gastric and intestinal placement. Hope this helps. I just reviewed this yesterday.

    I also failed the NCLEX the first time I took it in October with 183 questions. I defnitely let anxiety get the best of me, I started rushing through the questions just trying to get done. I was absolutely devastated! I had no confidence and didn't even want to think about studying again!

    But about a week later I knew that this was the only profession I would ever want to work in and it was worth taking the test as many times as I had too! I kept telling myself the 2nd time I take the nclex that I would own that test. I walked into the testing center the 2nd with soooo much more confidence and so much calmer than the first time. I was done at 75 q's and knew that I had passed, even though waiting two days to find out did mess with my confidence a little! I even had to check pearsonvue 3 times to make sure it said I passed!

    The main thing I did different was just practicing questions instead of reviewing material. I also made myself take all the time I needed to answer the questions. It took me 2 hours to do 75q's! That's slow for me, it took me 2 1/2 hours to do the 183 q's my first time I took the nclex.

    YOU CAN DO IT! HAVE CONFIDENCE IN YOURSELF! IT'S ALL ABOUT CONTROLLING YOUR ANXIETY AND WALKING IN THE TESTING ROOM WITH CONFIDENCE, even if it's fake!
    GOOD LUCK!

    I also used kaplan and my qtrainer ranged from 60-68% and I passed with 75 q's. I think that as long as you become comfortabe doing the questions you will be fine!

    what i know is fill-in the blanks isn't only for medications...they can ask you anything else on that. but most of the time it's more on calculations.
