    52%-59% Scores in Kaplan Qbank.

    took my nclex on Monday and passed my kaplan scores weren't the best! The key is knowing ur content! The more you do as in those Kap question is to learn how and what they are asking, you BUILD from each! YOUR GOAL is not to make awesome scores, but to gain from each wrong and know the why's! Listen keep your head up and never:no: give up! If you need help you can email me Rn2become@yahoo.com. As hurst taught me from my very start as an LPN the key is knowing your content and everything else will fall in place! But have a balance of content knowledge as well as knowing how to answer you questions! Best wishing and keep swimming! Mercedes,RN

    NCLEX/Isolation Precautions???

    I'm testing in a few days and I'm really nervous:cry: and this is really stressing me out...HELP PLEASE!!!!!!!!:( I'm really confused about the PPE that goes for each category. OK so I memorized the infection control section from the packet that's circulating on the site... the one with my chicken has tb, spiderman...etc. My first question is, under the PPE for Airborne they have listed: Private room- with negative pressure with 6-12 air exchanges/hr, mask and N95 for TB. So... I was doing question #5 in the prioritization, delegation and assignment book----> A client has been diagnosed with disseminated herpes zoster. Which PPE will you need to put on when preparing to assess the client? SATA... 1.Surgical face mask 2.N95 respirator 3.Gown 4.Gloves 5.Goggles 6.Shoes covers I picked as listed in the package 1,3,4. Correct answer 2,3,4. Rational: Because herpes zoster is spread through airborne means and by direct contact with the lesions you should wear an N95 respirator or high-efficiency particulate air filer respirator, a gown, and gloves. Surgical face mask filter only large particles and will not proved protection from herpes zoster. DOES THIS MEAN I PICK N95 MASK FOR ALL AIRBORNE????? IM SO CONFUSED??? Second Question in the package under droplets it has listed for the PPE: Gloves, mask and eye protection... WHEN DO I KNOW WHICH EYE PROTECTION TO PICK ...FROM FACE SHIELD AND GOGGLES OR SHOULD I PICK BOTH?????? AND SHOULDN'T SHOE COVERS BE LISTED? Sorry for the extra long forum but I'm extra confused!!!! Thanks guys!

    @cgambino70 TO ME...it's not that it's hard, It's more of having to learn / memorize skills in addition to clinicals and doing clinicals assignments, lecture and reading 12 chapters for your unit test in addition to your personal life is hard.. The best thing I can say is utilize your time wisely! 2nd Semester is a LOT! And oh boy if you think 2nd is a bit much, try 4th semester which is the same material as 2nd semester but with psych attached, all in TWO months v/s 5 like you have in 2nd WITH 2 essay's and 9 assignment to be all completed in the two months, oh n let me not forget reading up to like 10 chapters, additional assignments and yes still clincals! Yikes!... AN ENORMOUS amount of ((((THINGS))))) to do, but all can be done with a fried brain! :) Best Wishes
