Staffing or nursing

  1. Okay, I took my NCLEX-RN today which of course like everyone else I don't feel good about, but at least I feel compeled to warn others of the questions that made up more than half my test. 60 of my 75 questions were regarding staffing......@#$HELLO!!!! I really felt like there was maybe 5 questions regarding signs and symptoms , disease process and I was really mad to find they could care less to know how to take care of the patient but as long as I knew who to delegate to and send them home with home health....I know I am mad right now but no book I studied from prepared me for the "human resource" questions I was if you know any books that do cover this please tell me b/c I am thinking I will be needing it AGAIN in 90 days unfortunately...but at least ya'll have a FYI!!!!

    Yes. Thanks for sharing that information. While those types of issues are critical to nursing and should be included in the test, I would never have suspected that so many questions would focus on that.

    But hey, look at the bright side. While a low number of questions is no guarantee, if it shut off at 75 questions, you probably passed.

    I heard that the test had changed now that Pearson had taken over.

    AMBOO, good luck and let us know when you hear something.

    I took my boards a year ago and most of my questions were about isolation and placement of patients i.e. which patient would you move to OB if you had to......who is ok to room with a THA or pneum? I was thinking ok what about labs, S/S, medications etc? Well, I did pass, but, I too felt these were something that was not q priority.

    Congratulations. Remember the test is different for everyone. Some may have all delegation, some may have all Geriatric, or Cardiac, OB, Psych. So just because one person had one category doesn't mean that another test is going to be the same. I know the test has changed but I can't imagine that the basic system has changed. Good luck and have confidence.

    First of all--Go AMBOO!!

    Remember what we were taught, like Moonshadeau said, the test is different for each tester. That is because as you get a question right or wrong the computer decides what you get next. So if you get a Peds question and you do well, the next Peds question will be harder. If you get that right, it gets harder again.

    When you get one wrong, you then get an easier question in that area. So, you end up getting the most questions in your weakest area.

    It was probably the case that Amboo knows her stuff in disease processes, etc, but had less training in HR stuff. (Me too)

    Also, that is how the test has "Changed" upon being switched to a computer test. This year has also brought more changes in that they are supposed to have interactive questions now.

    Has anyone seen that yet?

    Good luck to all!!! And congratulations to those who are done!!
