NCLEX books banned

  1. Hi,

    Just want to raise a question here.

    Im working now in a specialized area government hospital here in Saudi Arabia. God-willing, I will also take the NCLEX exam this December and pass . This is to have more opportunity and career wise to upgrade my status in my chosen profession.

    Normally, I bring my NCLEX book reviewer inside the unit. And during, my free time, im reading this book. Now, this supervisor called my attention and she said that NCLEX books are not allowed anymore inside the unit. I was shocked and just thinking why Nclex books (which helped me learn and update my skills) are now banned inside the unit. Is this appropriate action? hmmm.. give me your ideas on this.... thanks...

    A lot of units here in the US don't allow outside reading material. I'm usually busy enough at work that I wouldn't have a chance to read anyway.

    It does seem strange that they are only banning NCLEX books. Maybe they don't want you to pass the NCLEX and leave them? Who knows...

    Have you brought in other books to read besides NCLEX and what did your supervisor say? There might really be a strict policy about certain reading materials in your unit, it just so happened that you were reading an NCLEX reviewer Or maybe Eric is right, they just don't want their nurses to leave that's why they are not encouraging it.

    Well, Im bringing different stuff like lippincott (nursing practice) and other nursing care books, those were allowed but NCLEX - NO.. so stupid really. Actually, the hospital is for JCI accreditation and they just want us to concentrate and study the JCI manual and questions that the surveyors will ask...very defensive.

    Hmmm about staying here? I just want to venture out and have better opportunities in US. :studyowl:
