Just remember Maslow Hierarchy of needs. Physiological needs is the highest priority then safety! 1. Maintaining airway and respiration 2. maintaining circulation 3. nutrition/elimination 4. sleep. If its a safety question focus on a safety answer. If it's a communication question focus on the clients feeling in the answers by remembering the communications tools for example: being silent and offering self. If it's a teaching question you always want to focus on the answer that focuses on client readiness to learn. Also remember you always assess prior to initiating or implementing.
I took my Nclex RN on Friday. I thought it was hard! I just wanted to say that in mine nursing program
we were required to do ATI assessment test. That help me out a lot. I continued to do those online assessment exams after I graduated to prepare for the nclex. It had wonderful tutorials that helped break down the alternate format questions! I will say to all of you that are taking nclex for the first time to know Maslow Hierarchy of needs. Highest priority of need-1. Physiological needs come first then 2. safety. Maintaining airway and respiration, maintaining circulation, nutrition and elimination and lastly sleep. knowing maslow helped me with the priority questions and diaster planning question. (who would you see first or need to discharge first due to community emergency.) I also recieved a lot of infection control questions and SATA. I also did the PVT when I got home and got the good pop up! I'm just waiting to see when my quick results will post so I can be relieved from my anxiety
Again ATI online assessments and tutorials were excellent. I never picked up a nclex book! I studied for 2 weeks using only ATI.
