  2. The nclex is focusing a lot on delegation and prioritization. This seminar on audio CD was just updated:

    If you want to purchase just the questions:

    http://caring4you.net/nclexprep.html

    And according to feedback from emails and my forum, the nclex is big on what patient to stick with whom when they come into the hospital with an infection. They also ask whether the patient needs a private room or can room with someone else. So in response to their concerns, I just recently completed a new seminar:

    what's acinetobacter infection?

    ReplyDelete
  4. Acinetobacter (ass in ée toe back ter) is a group of bacteria commonly found in soil and water. It can also be found on the skin of healthy people, especially healthcare personnel. While there are many types or “species” of Acinetobacter and all can cause human disease, Acinetobacter baumannii accounts for about 80% of reported infections.

    Outbreaks of Acinetobacter infections typically occur in intensive care units and healthcare settings housing very ill patients. Acinetobacter infections rarely occur outside of healthcare settings.

    Of the answers above, you only got question six correct.

  14. 6. 3,4,2,5 and 1, Everything you need to take care of your pt will be on a cart right
    outside the room. You put on the mask/gown/gloves before entering the room. You enter
    the room and care for your pt. Before leaving, you remove mask/gown/gloves and wash
    your hands.
    7. A. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) (from the Greek cyto-, "cell", and -megalo-, "large") is a

    8. A, and D. The general rule of thumb is any illness/disease that is airborne. Both TB
    and chickenpox are transmitted through the air. Meningitus is transmitted by large
    particle droplets. MRSA is transmitted via contact.
    9. A, B and E. According to the CDC, Acinetobacter causes a variety of diseases,
    ranging from pneumonia to serious blood or wound infections and the symptoms vary
    depending on the disease. Typical symptoms of pneumonia could include fever, chills, or
    cough. Acinetobacter may also “colonize” or live in a patient without causing infection or
    symptoms, especially in tracheostomy sites or open wounds.
    10.1 and 3. Part A in answer number 2 is incorrect. Should read, “Gowns may be worn
    one time only, then disposed of in the regular (non-biohazardous) waste.” Everything else
    in this answer is correct.

  18. It is 2009 I am going to take my nclex really LATE soon...I actually graduated in July of '08
    but I didnt have the money for my test for a long time. I am panicking b/c it has been so long. When I first graduate my final exam predicted that I had a 97% chance of passing the NCLEX on the 1st try...who knows how much it has dropped since then. I did study and stay current for several months...then i feel off for several months, then I hoped back on for several weeks. Do you recommend anything else for me to do. Recap course here run about 500 hundred dollars; can't afford that. I have been reviewing online info and my ATI series DVDs. I am worried about the math and pharm too, but several of the recent grads that I have spoken with say prioritization and delegation are the biggest focus...some even said they only got 1 math question. So I am really prioritiZing on study the Maslow Heirachy, and leadership, and delegation issues. Any other suggestions. I have also been review test taking strats to help select correct answers.

  19. Answer for June 27, 2009 8:35 AM



    So now that you have surfed the web it is time to get serious. You are financially strapped. You spent all your money on nursing school and now you have to buy some study material. But what? You have to pass this time.

    Everyone needs Lippincott's Review for the NCLEX-RN or Lippincott's Review for the NCLEX-PN whether you just graduated or you have been out of school for years. This is a great book. When purchasing, make sure you get the most recent edition and you can buy it used from www.amazon.com or off of your friend. It is great because it is full of questions front to back and they are complete with rationale and are broken down into sub categories based on which part of the body systems a section relates to.

    Do you need to refresh your memory with the 9 System Review? If you find that you are weak in any area of nursing, resources regarding this subject is bountiful on the internet. www.caring4you.net does offer this resource and if you want more information, you can email me. No matter where you get this material, you do not have to worry about the date of this product so you can buy it used from your friend or amazon.com. For example, our Endocrine System is the same today as it was 20 years ago. The function of the human body has not changed. Remember, this is a refresher for you. Before you spend a ton of money, see where you can buy it for less.

    The NCLEX is now focusing on Delegation and Prioritization. This change came about due to the events of 9/11/01 and the nursing shortage. There are not a lot of resources on the web pertaining to this subject matter and resource books seem to just touch on this. www.caring4you.net is the best resource for this. You will find that studying this for the RN and LPN are just about the same except, the RN questions deal with a higher level of critical thinking and delegation across the mutispectrum. With the LPN, it relates to delegating to nursing assistants and other LPN's but the prioritization questions are the same.

    The NCLEX is now focusing on Infection Control situations. You have got to understand when a patient can room with someone else and with what type of illness that patient can be in a room with and you have got to understand when a patient needs to be alone. You also need to understand when to gown up and when you do not need to. Surf the web and find the FREE resources. www.caring4you.net has great resources available on this topic.

    The NCLEX now has new format questions. It use to be in the days of old, prespective nurses were coraled into a giant room and took their exam with paper and pen multiple choice style. And as time went by with the advent of computers, we now met at predetermined testing sites and sit at a computer multiple choice style. One question building on the other with no way to go back and look at the previous question. And now today, the powers that be said to themselves, "Hmmm, we know there is a huge nursing shortage but let's throw a monkey wrench into the whole process anyway. Hey! Let's have the questions still be nultiple choice but you can pick more than one answer and you have to pick 'all that apply'. Yeah, that should make it harder." Just when one thinks they have conquered this thing called the NCLEX, They have to deal with now format questions. Everyone needs to buy NCLEX-RN 250 New-Format Questions: Preparing for the Revised NCLEX-RN or NCLEX-PN 250 New-Format Questions: Preparing for the Revised NCLEX-PN. You can buy this used from amazon.com or from your friend just make sure you have the latest edition.

  20. This is what is so tricky about answering 'ALL THAT APPLY' questions.

    The answer to 10 is 1) and 3) because they are the only two multiple choice that are correct completely. Number 2 has two parts to it. B. is a correct statement A. is not. Therefore, 2 would not be picked at all. When choosing all that apply, ALL parts of the answer must be correct.

  36. hi analiessa,

    i just finished taking the Rn-nclex exam, the computer stopped out at 75. there were ALOT of questions of prioritization and infection control, i would say they accounted for about half of the exam. and they were tough. always came down to two close answers, usually one involving a pt. in pain. your site encouraged me because i thought the ocomputer kept throwing the questions at me as if i was getting them wrong again and again. so we'll see...i'm going to pay to get quick results this friday and hope for the best. at least i'm well prepared to start again.

    i found there were few resources to deal with the infection control questions and the questions were vague, again with always 2 close answers that both were correct imo. any materials to help deal with both these areas, infection control and prioritazation would be greatly appreciated if in case i have to write again. thank you.
