Hello everyone, just wanted to introduce myself, and let you know that i've taught Nclex workshops/prep for many foreign RNs, of many nationalities.
I welcome your questions. I'll be glad to help as much as can/know about our infamous and famous Nclex exam.
When preparing for the exam keep in mind that safe and effective intervention cannot be separated; those questions that have one, or the other of these two element are incorrect and are used as distractors.
Of the four or five questions, only one of the possible answers will have the elements of safety and effectivity on intervention.
The Nclex as projective psychometric scale uses a "pool" of questions of about 275 or so; each pool assigned to each examinant from which the nurse will be given more just above 75 questions. The exam last about 5 hours and in actuallity the examinant is given from 75 to 80 questions to answer. Do not panic...you have about 5 hours to answer 75/80 questions only..!
Each of has taken longer exams in shorter times and passed them...!
On future chats, i'll cover about 30 or so strategies that will help examinants to increase their probabilities of passing the exam.
Strategy number will 'guessing consistently and law of probabilities'...which can translate into 18 to 19 correctly guessed questions...if you follow the law of probabilities guessing consistently may represent about 25% of 75/80 questions....and help you pass...!
Keep in mind the above information...and Right Guessing Probabilities will be discussed tomorrow....! I have questions simply reply to my thread.

I'm sure that our students will appreciate your help. A couple of areas of concern though:
- The pool of questions is much larger than 275. Was that a typographical error?
- For many, many students, the '5 hours to answer 75/80 questions only' does not hold true. As you must know, students may receive up to 265 questions for the RN and 205 for the PN.

Like Eric in the post above, I have a few concerns about your initial post as it contained some incorrect information. Perhaps you should tell us a little about your qualifications as part of your introduction before students assume you are a true expert.
That's just one of those common-sense precautions that people using the Internet for information should expect.
Assuming the best for a moment, I say "welcome" to allnurses and I hope you can find what you are looking for here.
