DRUGS they give on NCLEX

Students NCLEX

please share with us the drugs that came with your test. it will be very helpful.! (and also even if they came from planet Mars and Pluto, we definitely wouldn't mind) lol.

plus i had a friend who took the test about a month ago, he said he had this drug that causes a bluish discoloration on the skin as a side effect! say what??

I don't think people can name specifics they had on their test. That would be against the confidentiality of the test. Speaking of drugs turnin you blue, I only know of one that would do that. I'm sure there are others, but Minocycline can turn certain body parts blue as far I know. Oh and amiodarone for arrhythmias can turn you blue.

why don't we just share all the questions from our nclex along with the meds. lol :uhoh3: :nono: :nono:

i agree with kgh...

when you complete your nclex exam, you confirm that you will retain confidentiality of all information.

no one on this website or any other should be providing you the exact names of any meds that were within their state board exam. to that, no one should be providing the questions that were contained in their exam either. for this reason, you will find that many threads that contain information on "topic/subject" only.

your friend, depending upon what information he/she revealed to you, if over heard by the wrong person, could easily be reported to the state board and find him/her self in serious trouble.

plus, the odds are against you if you hope to get the same nclex questions as your friend. during a given month, most test takers see the same/similar question. each month (or every few weeks), the questions/topics rotate. while your friend had certain questions last month...you will probably not see the same question on your exam. it would be too easy for everyone to pass if they (the state) didn't rotate their 3000+ questions around from month-to-month/week-to-week.

thanks for that. i actually thought twice before asking for such opinions, but then i thought, there must at least be 3000+ common drugs out there that some can share. but anyway, thanks again. i understand your point. and thanks kgh31386 for the info. i only know methylene blue to turn blue skin stains but i've never heard of the drug Minocycline (call me a dope if u may). =)

I will only say the drugs I had were not common. They were so pulled from left field I cant remember the name of them!

I had a lot of drugs on my NCLEX RN and I think I really knew 2. The other ones, NEVER HEARD OF! It's almost unfair, a medication is something that I can look up. My mind can't hold every medication, that's why there are reference books.. Don't let the drugs get you down, if you don't know them, you look them up and with experience you will learn them. You will all still be wonderful nurses whether you have to look up drugs or not :)

thanks for all your response. i understand my response is WAY overdue, but this is just an update and i wanted to let you know i passed =) i took the test August 2nd, and passed with 75 questions on the first try. i was beyond blessed.

all i can say is that it was not the monster test we all expected. it was fairly easy but i wouldn't assume it to be the same thing for everyone, since it is a CAT system. also i want to add, to not let others make you feel down. i just realized some here can give you "inappropriate" responses, and that it is not necessarily what they could have said. they could have made things lighter for people by being "honest" but not torturing others because of their "honesty." i even read on on of the threads about someone getting a 99% on one of the trainers, and her response to many (on different threads) was almost always awkward. i remember even getting almost-rude responses (they ARE rude but they just like to add cherries on top), and when i would honestly search for their posts, i would end up finding out that they have not even taken the test, or have taken NCLEX-RN 3 times, or haven't even graduated at all. i mean how could this people even give you "no-so-great" responses about something you only want to know about? sorry for this but in my opinion, know-it-alls doesn't belong in forums.

so now you get my point. it's okay to feel down but always use it as your strength. don't think about others, think about yourself only and who you are doing the NCLEX for. gooduck to everyone! =)

hi ujones! i didn't study drugs deeply, i just wrote it down in every questions i encountered and be sure to review a day before the test. i only knew 6drugs out of 20 drugs on my test, others, i just used the prefix and suffix but some couldn't used it, just to make it safe i answered the safest or the one that can cause death, depending on the questions being ask if safe or death is the issue..... and also if i really can't figure out the right answer then i just answer "after meals" (the safest) :hehe: hahaha! i've read that also (p.c.) some of the post here! hope this helps!!!

god bless and good luck!!! you can do it!
