INFECTION CONTROL NCLEX REVIEW
Everyone taking the NCLEX or is about to take the NCLEX has realized that the NCSBN had change some of the content format of the NCLEX. One of the big changes includes the percent amount ofSAFETY AND INFECTION CONTROL that will be on the NCLEX. The “Safety and Infection Control” now makes up about 8-14% of the questions in the NCLEX, I believe that it only previously composed of about 9-12% prior (or I could be wrong).
Recently Infection Control makes up about 10- 13% of the NCLEX. That means that if you are able to get the average of about 130-150 questions, then you are guaranteed to recieved between 15- 20 questions that is related to Infection Control. Even if we get the least (75) amount of questions, we can still receive about 7-9 questions that is related to infection control, that is a HUGE help, if we do well on these questions. I personally dont think that Infection control is a difficult area. I believe that most of the nursing students never really studied “Infection Control,” when they were in Nursing School. Therefore, this lack of knowledge did not prepare the majority of the Nursing Student for the NCLEX.
