Thank you so much for posting all this information! The PDF file has been soooo helpful! I took the Kaplan review course, but still had lots of questions and your document simplifies alot of the information and makes it much easier to remember. I took the nclex-rn exam last week and did not pass. I am altering my studying and keeping positive. Congrats on passing and goodluck with your career as a nurse! :)

If u have a smart phone, I recommend downloading these apps:

1. Flashcards+ (For lab values) and

2. Micromedex ( for drug info )

Helped me a lot in my review

Thanks for sharing this! You are one generous person!:) God bless your heart.

I totally agree with you: Kaplan is too raw, Saunders is too detailed , Hogan is

just right. I bought all 3 reviewers and i ended up finishing Hogan. I like the

NCLEX highlights. I also believe that the more practice questions the better.

I'm taking the NCLEX next month. Wish me luck! :))

I know the OP probably won't seen this, since this is an old post, but just in case -- THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS!! You are such a nice person to take the time to share this information, and I truly appreciate it. I have been trying to get through the Saunders' book (which has been helpful when studying for unit exams, so I don't have to muddle through the enormous text book as much) but I have not been finding it so helpful for studying for the NCLEX... I am using the Hurst online review and I really LOVE it, but I wanted more than 1 review resource. Thanks to your post, I just bought the Hogan book and the LaCharity book, and I'll be studying those (in addition to Hurst online) until I take the NCLEX at the end of May :) Thanks again for everything, you are an angel!!!

I just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU for posting this. This is the best study guide I've ever seen. There is no doubt that you are an amazing nurse based on the fact you took the time to put this together and post it for the rest of us. Hope your career is going great! Thank you so much again!!

I am sure someone else has already mentioned this somewhere. But the treatment for air embolism and pulmonary embolism are different. For air, it is left and lower (all the way to where feet are above head) so that air does not travel to brain. For pulmonary, clot is lodged in lungs so raise the HOB to facilitate breathing. For NCLEX, pulmonary embolism = raise the HOB.
