NCLEX-RN Practice Question

The NCLEX-RN exam is a standardized exam that each state board of nursing uses. The NCLEX-RN exam determines whether or not you are prepared to enter the nursing field at entry-level. The NCLEX-RN exam tests your knowledge and your application of using your nursing knowledge that you learned while you were in school. The NCLEX-RN exam also tests you on how well you can use your critical thinking skills in order to make accurate nursing judgments. Passing the NCLEX-RN exam shows that you have the knowledge, skills, and abilities that are required to be a professional nurse.

The NCLEX-RN exam’s content is based on potential client’s needs, such as:

  • Safe and Effective Care Environment

B: Using a 27-gauge, ½ inch needle in the fatty part of the posterior upper arm. Insulin should be administered subcutaneously. A 27-gauge needle is a much better choice than a 22-gauge as this needle is too large. The ½ inch needle will be the right length to inject the subcutaneous layer. A 1-inch needle would be too long unless the patient was obese and this length of the needle was ordered by the treating physician.
