NCLEX Study Guide Question

  1. 6 Hey everybody,

    So, my NCLEX test is coming up on Friday (AHHHHHHH) and this will be the second time I am taking it and extremely nervous to fail again, but that's not my question. A few days ago, I found a study guide here:

    I was wondering if anyone has used this or could take a quick look over this to make sure I am not learning all the wrong information before I walk into this test again. I know it's an absurd question, but frankly, I am freaking out over here and don't want to fail this again. I'd be ultimately devastated even though I know it's not the end of the world.

    One of the main reasons I ask is because I could have sworn when reading in my ATI books it says for a patient who receives a lumbar puncture, they should line prone for 4-12 to prevent leakage of CSF and prevention of headaches, but on this guide (twice) it says lay supine.

    Any thoughts on both?

    with lumber puncture, patient should lie lateral with the back bowed during the procedure then supine for 4-12 hours after the procedure. I hope I'm right?

    It should be supine. Never prone!

    Ive studied about 4-5 different sources and ive always read that you lay supine after a lumbar puncture to prevent headaches and prevent csf leakage not prone.

    Im praying the study guide is correct,I read a few post where people said they used it and it helped them out a lot.I failed my PN N Cleax in Oct 2013 and getting ready to retest and Im using it.I love the codes they give you to remember things.I always thought after a lumber the pt sholud remain supine for 4 hours,I never heard of the prone position
