  1. Can i do just 75 questions for 6 hours?
    This sounds like a bad idea. They are very strict about the NCLEX and if any activity seems odd, they review tapes/recordings/each question and how you answered it etc. I think it'd spark a red flag...

  4. Time Frame for Med Administration
    Hi, In school, we learned that meds can be given within an hour of the designated time frame. In other words, if a med is due at 2100, it can be given between 2030-2130. Here on AN, I've noticed...

  14. I have no work experience what so ever... what do i write under work experience?
    If you are already a registered nurse and never worked as a CNA but held a license, I wouldn't put it on your resume. Did you work part-time in high school ANYWHERE? If not, I'd leave that section...

  17. What is the answer to this question!?
    Commonsense, I'd stick with 30 ml/hr for NCLEX. I'm not sure if our test questions are made up by the professor or not. I just now since first semester, on ANY test we've had, 30 ml/hr was never...

  18. What is the answer to this question!?
    I'd go with A as well. Even though it's only been two hours, the patient still should have voided more than "a little". It used to be 30ml/hr minimum, now it's moving more towards 50 ml/
