    I created an Excel template of my scores in percentages. I hope you are able to view it below. The bolded numbers are my scores for each category (right side) and each test (bottom). I did the Trainer tests in order and completed Trainer #7 three days prior to NCLEX. My lowest score for Qbank was 30% and I was between 40% to 55% for the longest time. I probably did an average of 15 questions for every Qbank. My learning and studying strategy was to look anything up that I was unsure of. If you need any other information from me you can message me at MONDEE619@GMAIL.COM, I'd be glad to help with whatever way I can to pass NCLEX :) [TABLE=width: 554] [TR] [TD][/TD] [TD]Diagostic[/TD] [TD] Readiness[/TD] [TD]Q1[/TD] [TD]Q2[/TD] [TD]Q3[/TD] [TD]Q4[/TD] [TD]Q5[/TD] [TD]Q6[/TD] [TD]Q7[/TD] [TD] [/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Basic Care and Comfort[/TD] [TD=align: right]55[/TD] [TD=align: right]50[/TD] [TD=align: right]63[/TD] [TD=align: right]75[/TD] [TD=align: right]36[/TD] [TD=align: right]67[/TD] [TD=align: right]45[/TD] [TD=align: right]67[/TD] [TD=align: right]60[/TD] [TD=align: right]65[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Health Promotion and maintenance[/TD] [TD=align: right]48[/TD] [TD=align: right]42[/TD] [TD=align: right]73[/TD] [TD=align: right]86[/TD] [TD=align: right]85[/TD] [TD=align: right]65[/TD] [TD=align: right]65[/TD] [TD=align: right]60[/TD] [TD=align: right]68[/TD] [TD=align: right]74[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Management of Care[/TD] [TD=align: right]36[/TD] [TD=align: right]64[/TD] [TD=align: right]56[/TD] [TD=align: right]50[/TD] [TD=align: right]46[/TD] [TD=align: right]58[/TD] [TD=align: right]45[/TD] [TD=align: right]57[/TD] [TD=align: right]64[/TD] [TD=align: right]60[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Pharmacology and arenteral[/TD] [TD=align: right]54[/TD] [TD=align: right]58[/TD] [TD=align: right]82[/TD] [TD=align: right]31[/TD] [TD=align: right]64[/TD] [TD=align: right]69[/TD] [TD=align: right]76[/TD] [TD=align: right]68[/TD] [TD=align: right]55[/TD] [TD=align: right]70[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Physiological adaptation[/TD] [TD=align: right]60[/TD] [TD=align: right]45[/TD] [TD=align: right]30[/TD] [TD=align: right]40[/TD] [TD=align: right]54[/TD] [TD=align: right]42[/TD] [TD=align: right]55[/TD] [TD=align: right]59[/TD] [TD=align: right]57[/TD] [TD=align: right]55[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]psychosocial intergrity[/TD] [TD=align: right]53[/TD] [TD=align: right]17[/TD] [TD=align: right]80[/TD] [TD=align: right]71[/TD] [TD=align: right]46[/TD] [TD=align: right]57[/TD] [TD=align: right]58[/TD] [TD=align: right]52[/TD] [TD=align: right]64[/TD] [TD=align: right]62[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]reduction of risk potential[/TD] [TD=align: right]64[/TD] [TD=align: right]71[/TD] [TD=align: right]33[/TD] [TD=align: right]67[/TD] [TD=align: right]50[/TD] [TD=align: right]53[/TD] [TD=align: right]50[/TD] [TD=align: right]52[/TD] [TD=align: right]62[/TD] [TD=align: right]63[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]safety and infection control[/TD] [TD=align: right]39[/TD] [TD=align: right]50[/TD] [TD=align: right]78[/TD] [TD=align: right]17[/TD] [TD=align: right]44[/TD] [TD=align: right]33[/TD] [TD=align: right]59[/TD] [TD=align: right]38[/TD] [TD=align: right]52[/TD] [TD=align: right]51[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD] [/TD] [TD=align: right]51[/TD] [TD=align: right]50[/TD] [TD=align: right]62[/TD] [TD=align: right]55[/TD] [TD=align: right]53[/TD] [TD=align: right]56[/TD] [TD=align: right]57[/TD] [TD=align: right]57[/TD] [TD=align: right]60[/TD] [TD=align: right]62[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Assessment[/TD] [TD=align: right]47[/TD] [TD=align: right]54[/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD=align: right]51[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Diagnose[/TD] [TD=align: right]53[/TD] [TD=align: right]61[/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD=align: right]57[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Evaluation[/TD] [TD=align: right]47[/TD] [TD=align: right]42[/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD=align: right]45[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Implementation[/TD] [TD=align: right]58[/TD] [TD=align: right]52[/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD=align: right]55[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Planning[/TD] [TD=align: right]47[/TD] [TD=align: right]64[/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD] [/TD] [TD=align: right]56[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Qbank 30% completed, 59% average score[/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Sample test 1 56%[/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Sample test 1 88%[/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Sample test 2 56%[/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [TD][/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD]Sample test 3 63% (I SUGGEST EVERYBODY TO TAKE THIS TEST!!!

    How to answer Priority Questions on the NCLEX?

    I took NCLEX on 1/7/14 and passed. I had a lot of prioritization as well as SATA/PATA's. I was unable to use the ABC's with my prioritization questions. I had to read each answer choice carefully, figure out what the outcome would be if I did not see that patient STAT/ASAP. I was also told that in NCLEX's world that you must assume that every patient is dying and which patient will die if you do not see them right now. I took my time in reading and answering the questions. I also pretended/imagined that I was entering these patient's rooms and questioned, what would I do next, who would I see first, what complications could happen if I did not do anything or had them wait a little longer. GOOD LUCK!!!!

    I am officially a licensed RN!!! YAY!

    On January 7, 2014 I passed NCLEX!!! First, I want to say THANK YOU to ALLNURSES.com!!!! This site was so useful during my nursing school and nclex prep!!! Since I found many nclex test-takers' posts so helpful, I should post something about my journey to getting my RN license :) I graduated December 15, 2013. Received ATT around 12/20/2013. Signed up for 'almost' the earliest NCLEX date January 7, 2014. I signed up for the in-class Kaplan Review from Dec 16-19. In-class was about 99.9% useless. Only because the instructor was unable to teach us the decision tree and she continued contradicting herself, which confused the class of 70. On the other hand, Kaplan was a great resource when reviewing for NCLEX. I did not have much studying time but I did all of the Trainer Tests 1-7 (to guarantee Kaplan refund/continued use), 30% qbank, 3 sample tests, and the alternative quiz. The videos are great if you have the time to watch them! I reviewed most of my tests and if I did not understand a topic, I would review it using Google or other textbooks. Sometimes during the tests, I would review the topic, which would help me remember/learn more about it. ***Note: every instructor is different. I was the lucky one to have her :-/ The night before my test, I skimmed through the NCLEX 35 page study guide (PDF) which was VERY HELPFUL!!! I wanted to reschedule so badly because of the holidays and not having as much time to study like my fellow classmates, but I decided not to. I told myself to only think positive thoughts from now on until the test! Even if I wanted to doubt myself, I fibbed to myself by saying something like, "I can do this. I want to be a RN. I will do great and pass!" My test was at 10:00am. It took me 4 hours hours with (I don't know how many questions). Last time I checked before the screen shut off, it was around question 130. Great tips that helped me was to not look at the clock or question number but to focus on each question as if it were a real patient or real work scenario; I took my time answering questions and always brought it down to two best choices before picking the (hopefully) correct one; telling myself to re-focus many times, take a deep breath and start over with the question. I did not give myself any expectations but to do well on the test. I had classmates that wanted to finish the test and pass with 75 questions, but I always said as long as I have less than 265 questions and leave within 6 hours, I will be happy. Lastly, I refused to do the PVT (Pearson View Trick) and had a classmate do it for me. It gave me the pop up and did not take me to a credit card screen. I did not believe it, I was still negative about my test. Then, around 4:00pm, the state posted my official results saying a permanent license was issued!!! WOOHOO!!!
  7. Thank you!!! :) I took my ATI yesterday and used the M.E.A.T acronym. I knew about the EAT from a NCLEX study packet, but the M was very helpful!

    NG tube and Ice Chips

    Thank you for all of your help! Apologies for leaving out the other two options. Here is the original question and I had the instructor review the last choice for any typos (there were some). It is true that 6 oz. of ice chips is a lot (considering the liquid part) and it would need immediate intervention. "The nurse observes the CNA doing the following tasks. Which of the following observations would require immediate intervention by the nurse? A) the CNA put a 6 ounce cup of ice chips in a client room with a NG tube to intermittent suction B) the CNA disconnects the NG from suction prior to ambulating a client that a bowel resection 2 days ago C) the CNA puts a pillow under the right arm of a client that had a closed cholecystectomy several hours ago D) the CNA encourages the client that had an appendectomy to use the incentive spirometry that was given to him after surgery "

    NG tube and Ice Chips

    That's how the question/choices are worded Hence, the reason for my confusion. I eliminated the other two choices. There are a total of four choices.

    NG tube and Ice Chips

    It's a practice question. The NG and Ice chip belongs to one of the answer choices. I do not know what the answer is. The question that I'm reading is: The nurse observes the CNA doing the following tasks. Which of the following observations would require immediate intervention by the nurse? a. CNA put a 6 oz. cup of ice chips in a client's room with a NG tube to intermittent suction b. the CNA encourages the client that an appendectomy how to use the incentive spirometry that was given to him after surgery. As I practice for the NCLEX, I understand that the real life is different from what is taught from the books. I have seen one of my patient's during a clinical rotation with an NG (no suctioning) and was able to take oral meds/beverages only if he was able to swallow that day. Which led me to wanting to choose 'B' because CNA's cannot monitor, evaluate, assess, and teach. A word is missing in 'B' (?) so I'm assuming it should say CNA is 'teaching' how to use the IS???

    NG tube and Ice Chips

    Can a patient with a NG tube with intermittent suction have Ice Chips?

    Bowel prep for ileostomy antibiotics

    Thank you Esme.
  13. Can a CNA encourage a patient that had an appendectomy and teach how to use the IS? I thought that it is the RN's duty to teach patient's how to use the IS after surgery. Or, what if the RN had already taught the patient how to use the IS, but the CNA still encourages and shows how to use the IS. I do not recall learning about CNA's being able to reteach.
  14. Neomycin Sulfate and erythromycin base are used to prep the bowel for ileostomy procedures. From my understanding it helps to 'Decrease the bacterial flora' and 'help prevent post-op infection'. Is it the same saying of "destroying the bacteria of the colon" and/or "To decrease the risk of any postoperative infection"?

    Delegation RN, LPN, CNA, nursing student intern

    Thank you Pangea for the reminder *unrepaired cardiac defect

    Delegation RN, LPN, CNA, nursing student intern

    If I did not have the electronic or web for resources on K+, then I would have the RN do it. Thank you Esme, I forgot to mention this in my post, about the unrepaired cardiac defect. I figured that the patient may be unstable or the outcome may be unexpected, which lead me to the RN removing K+ foods from the tray. Not mentioned, but included with the teaching would be a reassessment of the patient. Thank you for all of your guidance!!!
