NCLEX Question Types – Strategies for SATA (Select All That Apply)

NCLEX Question Types

NCLEX Question Types

We’re going to begin a series of articles on our blog about NCLEX questions you may find when you take your NCLEX. Many nursing schools will also prepare you by including some of these types of questions on your nursing exams.

SATA – means select all that apply. The worst part about these types of questions, I think is the name. As you’re taking the test they will make you nervous because you’ll want to make sure that you’ve included all that you need to.

I like this video – while it is short it gives you the basic fundamental for answering SATA questions.

If you don’t know the content, you won’t know the answer. So learn the content and those questions can be some of the easiest on the exam.

I also read another technique, read the question, and then go through the answers. Ask yourself True or False, does that answer apply to the question.

Another good video –

I like how she breaks down the question. Like I mentioned before you’ll still need to know what a total Laryngectomy is.

BTW – here is what that is:

Laryngectomy is the removal of the larynx and separation of the airway from the mouth, nose and esophagus. In a total laryngectomy the entire larynx is removed and in a partiallaryngectomy only a portion is taken out. The laryngectomee breathes through an opening in the neck known as a stoma.

More info –

Don’t get tripped up. The question asked specifically if the family needed more teaching, or didn’t understand what was happening.

Bonus video – this one is long. It talks about what to do if you fail the test, you can watch it even if you haven’t taken the test.

More next week, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
