IS THERE A DIFFERENCE IN THE TYPES OF QUESTIONS WHEN IT COMES TO THE NCLEX-RN AND THE NCLEX-PN REVIEW BOOKS?

IF ANYONE KNOWS PLEASE TELL ME..

THANKS IN ADVANCE

ANXIOUSLY WAITING

I think that when it comes to interventions, the RN has a higher responsibility than the LPN. I guess with content, we are pretty much the same but with interventions, each has its own thing to do. There are certain procedures that the LPN cannot perform but the books say it varies per state's hospital protocols.

Good Luck on the upcoming graduation! =D

thank you cebuana_nurse for the response. the reason why i was asking is because my friend just gave me an nclex-rn review book and i am in lpn school. i just wanted to see if it even made sense to even study from an nclex-rn book.

thanks again everyone

No, don't study from the RN book. You'll just get confused when it comes to delegation and a few other things that RNs do but LPNs don't.

find an NCLEX-PN book. the NCLEX-RN differs because it will have questions such as assessment that are beyond the scope of a practice of an LPN
