Fluid and electrolytes

  1. What's an easier way to remember the causes and signs and symptoms? I know my ranges! I just can't distinguish why a patient can have an increase or decrease.

    Try making up a chart on one page. List the symptoms of each hyper/hypo, then go through with a highlighter and highlight the major distinguishing Sx for each one. It really helps to see them all side by side and see the similarities and differences.

    I took Hurst last time I took my nclex pn close to passing but fail because of my anxiety for testing I get and now this time I'm reviewing hurst again to refresh my content cause it help me a lot and now using PDA and ncsbn for questions , also taking some herbal with vitamins to help me with my anxiety and helpin alot is nothin addicted like other medications u get prescribed , well the point is hurst did help me a lot improve my content out of all the other stuff it explains it to you in a way you start wanting to read more instead of Falling sleep , definitely a good review for pn or rn . good luck

    NCLEX mastery (app) has great electrolyte questions and they also have a bunch of mnemonics to help you remember all the information.
    I love the menmonics, any memory tricks help!!

    I'm not sure...my school included it our tuition my last semester. It is so worth it though. I take my Nclex in a few days and hurst is the only thing I'm using for content.

    I take mine at the end of the month and the only time I'm using is Saunders and cram exam! Good Luck by the way:-)

    Which is,best live or online review?
  14. by   Belle2013
    I did the live review and I'm doing online now. It's really neat the way they out everything together. Everything clicks better than it has all along. Some of the students I graduated with are even attending a second live review. It's a money back guarantee if you don't pass the Nclex in your first try!
