I have a friend who recently took NCLEX and she says as soon as she got past the tutorial she immediately wrote down all the lab values she could remember and maslows on her white board. Is this allowed? I mean, she didn’t get in trouble but I wonder if she just got lucky.

when I took mine they didn't care.. she gave me a  small white board  ( size of a  sheet of paper) you can use your hand to wipe the board.   and  she never said anything about not writiing down lab values..  

what people dont tell you on here is its a testing center so not everyone in there is taking the NCLEX.. and you dont all start at  8am or 12 or what ever. people are coming in and out the whole time your there.. all they do is provide the test.  the dude next to me was taking a electrical test .. the girl on my left was taking a GRE test.. this guy in lline before me was taking a real estate license.

but as far as the lab values its good to know them but they arent gonna ask you specifally what is the  range of  BUN .. the lab value will be in the question or the MAR it may or may not be pertinet to the question.

exactly.... same thing happened to me.. they just make sure you dont cheat.. and they cant micromanage you because there are  30-35  computers and people are steadlily coming to room , using the bathroom, taking unscheduled breaks or finishing thier tests..

Did you pass? @Astronomical 1 I took mine last Tuesday 17th March . Stopped at 75q. I find the questions difficult to answer but was confident on some. And based on what I've read this could mean a good thing. but lots of test takers are failing at 75. And PVT pop up was bad 😞

@dj_rn  I failed at  265  I made alot of mistakes ( which I will write more on next month when I retest)

1 was I had coffee and I was jittery and subconciously I was trying to hurry up...

the test wasnt  too hard there was only 5 questions I was like WOW!! is this.. to me since I was using uworld I  thought I was just taking another uworld test. nothing seemed too hard.

not to make excuses but I got screwed on my test ..I had at total of  52 SATA which  15 were in a row towards the end of the test. the reason I say I got screwed is  if I'm close to the  passing/failure line and you getting  15 sata wrong in a row you below the passing line.. you cant come back from that .

@dj_rn hey what I will say do uworld. ( if your not signed up ) and read all the rationales..

and you need to buy the  LACHARITY priorization book .. YOU........NEED....... THAT  BOOK..  

this book give  a bunch of prioritization questions for each body system... and my grades went up. ( priority  grades are score higher on  NCLEX ) 

 You need that book . I know I will pass strictly from that book.. people have been recommending that book on Youtube.

Please read the rules for the NCLEX on their website... you cannot write anything on your whiteboard (or paper) until after the introduction/tutorial has completed.. this is considered brain dumping.

After you have completed the introduction and are actually on question #1 you can use your board as you see fit.

Best of luck.

When I was given the white board, I was told that if I write something on it,I cannot erase it.  I would be scared as heck if I copied something from the tutorial.
