All nclex test takers have to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Your best bet would to look at alternate items in an nclex review book.

I believe that the folks that put on the NCLEX have a program that shows pretty closely what those questions actually look like. If you want to actually do those kinds of questions, there are tons of ways to get them. We're all bound by a non-disclosure agreement as to exactly what was on the exam and your exam will be different from the one I had, so no test questions/answers from me!

When I walked out of the NCLEX I had to look at a map since I barely remembered how to get home, let alone the wording of any question or the composition (# of SATA vs regular multiple-choice vs alternate-format ?'s) of the exam...

I honestly don't remember any of the questions on the previous two tests! It was just too nerve racking. I can give you an example of a SATA question. You get 5 answers to pick from and it can be 1 right or all 5 right, but according to HURST review there will be at least 1 wrong. :-)

Example: You have a client who has just returned to the unit from having a cardiac cath. What care would you provide?

1. Place client in moderate fowlers for first 20 minutes

2. Check vitals every 15 minutes

3. keep pressure dressing on incision/puncture site

4. allow patient to sit up on side of bed for 15 minutes

5. elevate head of bed 30 to 45 degrees.

You would answer this using "true/false" so the correct answers would be 2, 3. That is a simple example of the SATA type questions, but expect them to be much more complex that this. As for the point and click questions (mark the spot), you need to remember to be precise. Make sure you mark on the exact spot you want because if it's off a little bit it might not count as correct. That tip comes from HURST as well. Know where to hear specific heart sounds.... like S4 would be heard where? answer: at the left 5th intercostal space about 1 1/2 inches from the clavicle. Where is the apex of the heart? Ans: left lower most tip. The mark the spot ones were fairly easy for me but I only got a few of them. I got tons of SATA's which I absolutely HATE and always get the majority wrong. None of what I have told you is what you will find on the NCLEX...as far as I know. It is just some hints from my reviewing for the test. Once you take the NCLEX you cannot tell any question that you have on it. If you have a Kindle or IPad there is an app that is similar in format to the NCLEX questions. It's called All Premium Questions and Rationales by Linda Stanford, RN. The cost is $9.99 through Amazon apps and it is worth every penny. You can also try it (sample) before you purchase it. :-)

Good luck with your study program and the test!
