Nclex facts throwing for 2014

  1. 0
    Hello my NURSING Family, I trust that all is well. I once read on this site random facts throwing from 2008 and it was informative. Thank you so much to the one who started random facts throwing in 2008, it was a brillant idea. I taught I would piggy-back off it and start a random facts for 2014. It is like a State Wide and/or International NCLEX study group, where everyone just through out facts from what they studied. I believe we all wish we can meet and study for the NCLEX together but that is just impossible. So, this is a way we can get that accomplish. Feel free to Join in. THANK YOU.
