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.

    I used the online Vipra Med review exams to pass the NCLEX RN. I would recommend a combination of Kaplan and Vipra Med if you really want to pass.... Kaplan is kinda on the expensive side. Vipra is more reasonably priced. All the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
