INFECTION CONTROL on NCLEX

  1. Hi!
    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??

    thank youuu

    The pneumonics on the 35 page guide are good. PLEASE know the different types of pneumonia. I plan to use the CDC website. Good luck

    Caring4you.net listen to the 8 concept of the NCLEX. She breaks it down well. All the best to you. You will be in my prayers. I am also doing the exam on Monday. We will pass.

    Pneumonics?
    pneu-mon-ic

    [noo-mon-ik, nyoo-] Show IPA
    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.
