Nursing Iv (NUR 2204C) 2019 Nclex RN Cram Sheet NCLEX Help Alexandra Berrios

This NCLEX-RN cram sheet or cheat sheet can help you prepare as it contains condensed facts about the nurse licensure exam itself and key nursing information. When your time to take the NCLEX comes, you can write or transfer these vital information from your head to a blank sheet of paper provided by the testing center. Please download only at Nurseslabs.com as we continually update this cram sheet.

1. T EST INFORMATION • Six hours – the maximum time allotted for the NCLEX is 6 hours. • Take breaks – Take breaks if you need a time out or need to move around. First optional break is offered after 2 hours of testing, next is offered after 3.5 hours of testing. All breaks count to your allotted six hours. • 75/265 – the minimum number of question you can answer is 75 and a maximum of 265. Of the 75 questions, 60 will be scored question and the remaining 15 are pretest or unscored questions. • Read the question and answers carefully – do not jump into conclusions or make wild guesses. Read the entirety of the question including its choices before selecting your final answer.

• Look for keywords – avoid answers with absolutes like always, never, all, every, only, must, except, none, or no. • Don’t read into the question – Never assume anything that has not been specifically mentioned and don’t add extra meaning to the question. • Eliminate answers that are clearly wrong or incorrect – to increase your probability of selecting the correct answer! • Watch for grammatical inconsistencies – Subjects and verbs should agree. If the question is an incomplete sentence, the correct answer should complete the question in a grammatically correct manner. • Rephrase the question – putting the question into your own words can pluck the unneeded info and reveal the core of the stem. • Make an educated guess – if you can’t make the best answer for a question after carefully reading it, choose the answer with the most information. • New question types – New question types are added on the test. These questions are found on the Special Research Section of the test, which pops up after the candidate finishes the exam. These do not count toward your score and are testing out the feasibility of the test question, not the test-taker.

2. NCLEX QUESTION TYPES • Multiple-Choice –These questions provide you with data about client situation and given four options to choose from. Most common question type. • Fill-in-the-Blank – This format is usually used for medication calculation or computing an IV flow rate. Type only a number for your answer in the box. Rounding an answer should be done at the end of the calculation or as what the question specifies. Type in the decimal point if necessary. • Multiple-Response – You’ll be asked to select all the option that relate to the information asked by the question. There may be two or more correct answers and no partial credit is given for correct selection.

• Ordered-Response – In this format, you’ll be asked to use the computer mouse to drag and drop your nursing actions in order or priority. Based on the information presented, determine what you’ll do first, second, third, and so forth. Directions are provided with the question. • Figure or Hotspot – A picture or graphic will be presented along with a question. This could contain a chart, a table, or an illustration where you’ll be asked to point or click on a specific area. Figures may also appear along with a multiple-choice question.

• Chart/Exhibit – A chart or exhibit is presented along with a problem. You’ll be provided with three tabs or buttons that you need to click to obtain the information needed to answer the question. • Graphic Option – In this format, options are pictures rather than text. Each option is preceded by a circle that you need to click to represent your answer. • Audio – In this format, you’ll be required to listen to a sound to answer the question.
