NCLEX Study Guide

NCLEX Study Guide

The NCLEX-RN exam focuses primarily on eight Client Needs categories. Each category assesses a nurse’s ability to address a patient’s primary health needs in a wide range of medical scenarios. The questions are further broken down into four types of Integrated Practices (Nursing Process, Caring, Communication and Documentation, Teaching/Learning), which focuses on the ways that nurses approach client needs. The key difference between the two is ability vs. approach.

Focus on the specific Client Needs techniques, terms and concepts that are listed on each of the content area pages linked below, but realize that these questions are going to be asked from four distinct Integrated Practice angles.

Management of Care: Properly managing a patient’s care while still complying within all necessary regulations. Exam takers should err on the safe side and ensure that their answers do not compromise the patient’s safety.

Safety and Infection Control: Protecting patients and other health care workers from various health and environmental hazards.

    In December i will take the equivalent to the NCLEX in Puerto Rico to become a registered nurse.I took one of the quizes in nurse link and did pretty good,it really pumped me .I've heard rumors the last tests have concentrated more in psychiatry and maternity but anything can happen.The college i went to in PR dedicated a whole semester to preparation for the bar exam.I need to dedicate at least 3 hours daily to review the material.

    I read some of you guys testimonals, I failed boards myself a couple of times. I will take the suggestion made by MichelleTaylor with the Virpra Med, never heard of it until now. I'm willing to pay the small fee that they offer to study for the NCLEX -PN. I ready to pass this test so I can move on to RN school. I've tried Hurst Review, which was good, but I need help still! I also have the Exam Cram book for PN, which is good too! I think the VipraMed will be good.

    I took the N-CLEX PN three times in 2002 and never study afterwards to take it again because I felt that nursing was not my thing, but now I have a dear cousin that wants me to try harder and take it again. How can someone help me focus and what do I have to do in order to get back on track and take it again? God bless
