What Lab values are do we need to memorize for NCLEX?


Specializes in Emergency.

Which ones do we need to really focus on? I'm sure we'll need to know all the electrolytes and ABG's....what others do we need to really put time into memorizing?


Specializes in Med/Surg. Has 7 years experience.

I'm also trying to remember therapeutic/toxic levels of some drugs (like digoxin, lithium, phenytoin, etc), also would be nice not to forget CBC, PT/INR, PTT; urinalysis - BUN, creatinine, specific gravity, PH, etc.

Ah, almost forgot - diabetes mellitus and all the tests - FPG, CPG, OGTT, HbA
