NCLEX Study Guide Question

Updated | Posted

Hey everybody,

So, my NCLEX test is coming up on Friday (AHHHHHHH) and this will be the second time I am taking it and extremely nervous to fail again, but that's not my question. A few days ago, I found a study guide here on allnurses.com.

I was wondering if anyone has used this or could take a quick look over this to make sure I am not learning all the wrong information before I walk into this test again. I know it's an absurd question, but frankly, I am freaking out over here and don't want to fail this again. I'd be ultimately devastated even though I know it's not the end of the world.

One of the main reasons I ask is because I could have sworn when reading in my ATI books it says for a patient who receives a lumbar puncture, they should line prone for 4-12 to prevent leakage of CSF and prevention of headaches, but on this guide (twice) it says lay supine.

Any thoughts on both?

Hey would you be Able to send me this attachment. It won't let me open the link. Thanks

Thank you so much! This is awesome! I will be taking mine sometimes in the beginning of 2014! I am so nervous already!

With lumber puncture, patient should lie lateral with the back bowed during the procedure then supine for 4-12 hours after the procedure. I hope I'm right?

It should be supine. Never prone!

Ive studied about 4-5 different sources and ive always read that you lay supine after a lumbar puncture to prevent headaches and prevent csf leakage not prone.

I used this same exact study guide to study nclex and it did help out.

I'm praying the study guide is correct, I read a few post where people said they used it and it helped them out a lot. I failed my NCLEX PN in Oct 2013 and getting ready to retest and I'm using it. I love the codes they give you to remember things.I always thought after a lumber the pt should remain supine for 4 hours, I never heard of the prone position

I'm praying it helps because that's all I plan to look at 3 days before I test!

I used the study guide and it helped me as well.

Thanks again for the study guide...looking to retake the PN early 2014...good luck everyone

I have yet to find a similiar guide that has as many questions answered, as this study guide has. NICE post!!!

Okay, so guys, I'm in my 4th semester of nursing school and I love to prepare ahead of time for things. I'm sure you can tell where this post is going, so here it goes... I would like to take my NCLEX in December. At my school, we take our finals in November so that we have the option to test in December. I was looking at the calendar and after November the 14th, I'm pretty much done with everything since I will have most of my precepting hours in and can start studying for the NCLEX. I am thinking my test date will be around the end of December so I will be fully prepared. I am not worried about study on Christmas Day, the NCLEX is my top priority at this point. So I get Kaplan for free at my school. The cost is divided over our semesters. We have a Kaplan Live Review the week after classes are over. It's from December the 12th through the 15th. I also bought Hurst Review to help me with content and I already have the workbook done so I plan on studying it here pretty soon. Here is a copy of my study guide: NCLEX Study Guide

Week 1 Go over Hurst workbook, memorize drugs and side effects, lab values, Saunders Comprehensive NCLEX Review, LaCharity PDA, look over study guide I found on Allnurses website.

Week 2 Kaplan NCLEX RN Content Review Guide do Question Trainers and QBanks, review every question and go back over weak areas, look over study guide from Allnurses website again.

Week 3 Review some of content from Week 1, begin Uworld questions, look over study guide from Allnurses website again.

Week 4 The top priority for week 4 is to do the Hurst Q Reviews, go over weak areas, more practice questions, go back over Kaplan QBanks and Uworld, look over study guide from Allnurses website again. Relax the day before the exam!!!

Okay guys, so do you have any suggestions or tips for me? I would really appreciate the input since I am a little OCD and like to get things done as soon as I possibly can lol. Thank you all!
