Can anyone give me advice on which medications to focus on the the nclex-pn?

Hello everyone,

I am planning on taking my nclex-pn on 1/19/2007. I have been so over whelmed the past couple of weeks trying to study and review everything. But most of all I am just so confused on all the meds. Can anyone help? I know I don't have that much time left. Thanks!!

Is there any way you can break them down into classifications?

MAOI's- you need a tyramine free diet

Sulfa drugs- drink with lots of fluids- causes crystals

Insulin- hypo/hyperglycemic reactions

steroids- weaken the immune system

stuff like that? That is what I have been focusing on and I test on Thursday.

Thanks for the info. One more question, which medication catagories are you focusing on since there are sooo many?

diabetic drugs


thyroid replacement



antiulcer drugs

parkinson/alzheimers drugs

Those are the big ones off the top of my head

Hey guys! I took the NCLEX-pn on November 17th. I only had two drugs on my test. I had Theo-Dur and Digoxin. But there is really no way to study for the NCLEX. Everyones test is different. Alot of mine was about renal disease. I talked to a friend of mine this morning and hers was meds, select all that apply, and nursing priorities. But you just have to read the questions carefully and eliminate the ones that you know are wrong. I only had 85 questions which is the minimum. You can have up to 205 questions. But don't freak out if you get either one. 25 of the questions are test bank questions that really don't count. Good Luck!!!
