Kindly review the answers of number 6, 21 & 22. The correct answers are scored incorrect and the rationales are still the ones scored incorrect. Please effect the right changes to avoid confusion.
yes i agree with the statement above. Also i would review the sizing of the infants head question. it is true you can size right above the infants eye brow.
What is the issue with some of the test bank questions for NCLEX Maternal/Newborn? #6 was answered correctly, but it came up as incorrect. Same thing happened for #22. Just needed to let you know….
I have experienced the same results that was shared above. Correct answers which are marked wrong
Sorry folks, we have corrected those items listed above. It should work correctly!
Please check question 10 , its stated the correct answer is c but marks wrong even if you choose the c
This is corrected.
I just want to say thank you for this website :)
(Reposted for correction) Please check number 25. Isn’t it right that ABO incompatibility occurs only when the mother is type O and the child is type A, type B, or type AB?
I would like to know why #21 has the answer which is acceptable instead the negative approach due to ” Further instruction” in the stem question? i think i could choose ” If you give the baby cereal, be sure to give him rice to prevent allergy. Please i am waiting for your explanation. Thanks in advance…
hi WILHEM PIERRE,
The nurse “recognizes” the need for further instruction about infant feeding, therefore, telling the mother the CORRECT statement, C. “The infant’s digestive tract cannot handle complex carbohydrates like cereal.”
Notice that other options A, B, and D also need further instructions.
Hope this helped you.
Thank you for these quizzes, very helpful in preparing for exam
Thank you for all the great questions. It is really helpful in many ways . I always come back to refresh my memory.
