    What happens in the real world if:

    For NCLEX purpose, between the two options you mentioned, I would chose: culture the wound. According to Kaplan, in the NCLEX land ("ideal world") you have the MD's order to culture the wound. Also, wound culture is another piece of assessment. In real world, as others said, I would call the MD and use SBAR.

    Any tricks to remembering normal lab values?

    @myprideandjoy. you can use dimensional analysis: ml/hr= 500 ml/50 units x 5 units/hr ml/hr= 50 ml/hr [color=#333333] in this example, units cancel out and your answer should reflect what the problem ask: ml/hr. [color=#333333] dimensional analysis is an orderly and systematic mathematical process that results in consistent accuracy, provided the equation is set up correctly.

    The good "pop-up"

    Yes, the "good pop-up" is accurate although I was skeptical about it too. Congrats to both of you!

    My scores were somewhat similar to yours and I passed NCLEX with 75 questions on my first trial. You'll do fine! Good luck!

    Exam in 3 days, took my last Qtrainer today

    It's "normal" to feel that way. You may have the same feeling during NCLEX (at times) and after you take the NCLEX. At least I had it, but it turned out OK despite everything. Good luck to you! You can do it!

    Pearsonvue Trick - Does it Work Every Time? Part 3

    Based on my experience as long as it says "delivery successful" and you get the same pop up, it means that you PASSED, so don't worry! Congrats!
