NCLEX-Masters emphasizes the use exam taking strategies for successfully passing the NCLEX exam.
It offers an introduction and explanation of the content and organization of the NCLEX exam and the purpose of the NCLEX plan as designed and reviewed by the NCSBN. It provides a thorough understanding of the nursing intervention process, the central idea of the NCLEX exam. That’s Strategy #1 for all test takers when facing the NCLEX exam.
All exam takers must understand the NCLEX plan and purpose.
With that in mind, this manual approaches each question applying analytical thinking, like the NCLEX plan creators do; that is, to tackle each question keeping in mind two essential concepts; these being safe and effective intervention, the core guidelines of nursing intervention.
Additionally, this manual centers on the rationalization of each answer by identifying in each question the nursing process. This rationalization lead exam takers to place themselves in a ‘virtual’ intervention scenario before they a select the most reasonable or most correct answer. Each answer must be selected considering the core elements inherent in all nursing interventions, safety and effectiveness.
The fundamental approach of this manual is to instruct the exam taker in test taking techniques that enhance their passing score; this includes understanding the role of the mathematical probability of educated guessing, analytical elimination of wrong answers by attention to the clinical language used in each question, as part of the general strategies needed to master the exam. The association of each question to the nursing intervention process is a must; whether that may be assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation. This approach will guide the exam taker about the priority of intervention and the delegation as needed. As a general rule, answers with more clinical language are potentially considered better answers than those with less clinical language. It makes perfect sense that the more clinical information a nurse has about a patient, the safer and more effective intervention the nurse can provide in real life. Also this manual approach focus its attention on Psychiatric Nursing intervention, a portion of the NCLEX exam most failed by nurse grads whose limited training in psychiatry limits their rationalization of psychiatry questions. The manual devotes a strategy to overcome the lack of psychiatry nursing intervention by identifying most psychiatric disorders and medications, as well as, assessment and treatment, plus related issues.
The Triage principle is explored to establish the PRIORITY of intervention during a massive emergency natural disaster or war, the ABC of the intervention in American nursing. The manual also includes basic information on the ethics and legal aspects of nursing practices, as well as an a revision of the psychiatric illnesses and its nomenclature, mechanisms of defense, symptoms, etiology, interventions and medication commonly prescribed for mental disorders, as well as, a listing of the 200 most commonly diagnosed disorders in U.S.A hospitals. The application of strategies and suggestions assist the student to discern between similar answers, to eliminate obvious incorrect ones by simple analysis, or simply to determine when it is appropriate to select an answer at random and even guess the right answer when absolutely needed and benefiting from educated guessing.
Strategy #1 below has a full introduction to the NCLEX plan s designed the National State Boards of Nursing.
