Matt Vera is a registered nurse with a bachelor of science in nursing since 2009 and is currently working as a full-time writer and editor for Nurseslabs. During his time as a student, he knows how frustrating it is to cram on difficult nursing topics. Finding help online is nearly impossible.

Knowing how valuable nurses are in delivering quality healthcare but limited in number, he wants to educate and inspire nursing students. As a nurse educator since 2010, his goal in Nurseslabs is to simplify the learning process, break down complicated topics, help motivate learners, and look for unique ways of assisting students in mastering core nursing concepts effectively.
  • Hi, thank you for these practice NCLEX styled questions! I am currently taking the “Hypertension & Coronary Artery Disease NCLEX Practice Exam #3” and one of the rationale boxes for both the incorrect and correct answers does not seem to correlate with the question nor the answer choices. The question was asking about the most important long term goal for a hypertensive patient. I was wondering is there any way to trouble shoot this so I could receive the correlating rationales? Thank you.

  • Hi Matt! I am very thankful for your help. God bless and may the good Lord continue to shower you with more blessings for your generosity.
    These practice tests would help me pass the NCLEX exam.

    I play with this every now and then until I finally could come out with this score, am so… looking forward to one day becoming a RN. Thanks for this educative platform

  • Question 18 about a 56 year old lady having chest pains while climbing stairs to her friend’s house. Some other classmates and I agree that she should probably not take a nitro tablet right before climbing the stairs because she could have a significant drop in BP, get dizzy, and fall down the stairs. We are instructed to always educate the patient to sit down before taking a nitro tablet for safety and to take caution when standing after. Other than that question, these are great and go along with my current nursing exam.

  • Thank you for sharing these mind juggling practice questions. I’m preparing for the NCLEX and I use this platform to gauge my understanding in various topics.

  • Only God almighty will reward you for this good work. Thank you! thank you!! Thank you!!! Only God knows how much you impacted positively in my study life 😭

  • I love this site. It’s intuitive and helps provide great challenging questions with in-depth rationales. That I, as a nurse educator, love reading! Great job!

  • For question no 48, I think Cardiac tamponade includes jugular vein distention decreased urine output, not increased urine output as indicated in your answers. Can you please, revisit question no 48 and give more clarification on the answers? Thank you so much. I have learned a lot in this chapter. -Nonye.

  • Question 26 on exam 4:
    Correct Answer: B. Hypertrophic

    Cardiac output isn’t affected by hypertrophic cardiomyopathy because the size of the ventricle remains relatively unchanged.
    I thought hypertrophic cardiomyopathy leads to decreased filling (diastolic failure) which would then result in decreased stroke volume and thus decreased cardiac output?

  • Thank you so much for this!! I appreciate it so much, especially the detailed rationales. Also, I just want to note that I don’t think the Schilling test is used anymore for question 9 and 10? Just in case you want to update, but I might be wrong. Much love!!

  • We were taught to call for help/call code then initate CPR if we are the first person for V. Fib and someone else would bring the AED. Is that just a nursing school thing?
