INFECTION CONTROL on NCLEX
I am taking NCLEX again on monday. (2nd time).
I am feeling much more well prepared this time, but just wondering if anyone who has already taken NCLEX can recommend anything on INFECTION CONTROL. I had so many of these questions last time, and what I thought I knew, either I didn't or I had a hard time applying.
Any last minute resources or words to the wise??

adjective1.of, pertaining to, or affecting the lungs; pulmonary.
2.pertaining to or affected with pneumonia.
Well, pneumonia can be an infectious process.
If you mean, "Catchy phrases or abbreviations to help you remember things," you mean mnemonics (that is not a typo)*, from the Greek for "memory."
As to infection control for NCLEX (and work), the CDC is definitely your friend. Look at the info on precautions, and visualize what they mean and when they are applied. There will be questions on that.
