One of my instructors gave us a friendly reminder about the fact that there will be lab values on the NCLEX! What?! Don’t worry, this isn’t a surprise to me. Definitely a wake-up call though.
So what did I do about it? I made some flashcards using the lab values provided at the University of Minnesota Medical Student Website.
It took me about 30 minutes to create these cards. I wrote the lab name on the front, and the back has the normal value and the category of the lab (e.g., ABGs, coagulation).
