New questions for May 2020, #1.

 

I hope all of my nurse friends are staying healthy. This is a time to be proud of being a nurse.  I am so grateful for all the nurses who are caring for the sick during this deadly pandemic.  Thank you for being so selfless and using your lifesaving skills.

Those of you who are in the process of becoming a nurse – we are so glad you are going to join us. 

Some of you are waiting to take NCLEX and others of you are trying diligently to finish your nursing courses in a new way of learning.  Don’t forget we have the whole NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN Reviews available for download.

To help you stay at peak performance for testing I am posting a few questions for you to practice this week. You need to keep practicing questions.  You will note that I have given you a number of “Select all that apply” questions.  I expect you will be seeing more and more of these on NCLEX. Please read the rationales.  The rationales are like another textbook for you.  They help you with content and learning to think like item writers think.  Enjoy the questions.
