    BBB VS vtach?

    How to distinguish bundle branch block vs vtach on tele strip? What are the defining charscteristics of vtach vs bundle branch block? I am having trouble distinguishing the two? I know both have wide qrs complexes but they look very similar to me.

    Failed nclex 11 times.

    Please try UWORLD. It's 59 bucks for 30 day acess. There are 1954 questions to study from. Read each rationale, go over concepts you don't understand, and take the test again. Nclex is very similar to UWorld. Trust me.

    Hello my fellow future indiana nurses!!! I am happy to inform you that I have passed the NCLEX-RN with 75 questions. I am posting because I believe I have info that can be of great value to all new grads who are prepping for NCLEX-RN!! 1. Focus on what you do not know or your weaknesses. I used the RN test plan on the nsbsn website to focus on topics I have not mastered. 2. Purchase Uworld access. Complete all of the questions and read each rationale. Do not worry about how many you got wrong or your score. Focus on why the correct answer is the CORRECT answer. 3. Redo questions that you got incorrect. This time you should easily pick the correct answer if you understand the rationales. 4. Take the uworld simulation test. This test will definitely boost your confidence for the nclex. Go over content that you missed. 5. Take the NCLEX-RN. Read each question carefully. Breathe. Think about each answer. Select the correct answer. Do not change your answer unless you are 100% sure that is the CORRECT answer. I followed these steps with success. I know you all will too. Have faith and confidence in yourself. You got through nursing school you can get through this. KICKASS!! Show NCLEX-RN you have mastered the material!!! Sincerely, Your future fellow nurse 😉

    Indiana University Northwest

    Hello, I am a junior 2nd degree student at IUN. If you decide to come here, just be prepared to be very flexible. Things can change at the last minute. I would advise against working during the school year. The instructors are awesome in clinicals! Quizzes and exams are tough (not because the material is hard but because you will most likely be tested on things you forgot/or did not focus on). The prof. here are notorious for asking exam/quiz quesitions that cannot be found in the book. You will need to have good critical thinking skills in this program because the answers are not always clear cut and black and white. As far as up front expenses goes, you will spend $600 up front on ATI software(test taking software to help prep for nlcex), $75 on nursing pack(catheter kit, trachea suction, thermometer, bp cuff, gown, gloves,mask), and about $50 on nursing scrubs. These things will need to be purchased before you start the program. If you have any other questions, I will be happy to answer them!!
