NCLEX Quizzes & Trivia

This is a exam called the Hesi Test, and it is a preparation for people taking the NCLEX to become a nurse at the Tallahassee Memorial Hospital or Capital Regional Medical Center in Tallahassee, Florida. The NCLEX stands for Nursing Cardiology Last Examination. For people who pass the NCLEX with a 75% or better, earn their ID badge to one of the two hospitals. That doesn't mean the job starts right then. There are 3 parts to this test. One is Different Heart Rhythms, Two is Describing what causes the certain rhythm, and Three is How to treat it. Good luck! The better you do on this exam, the better you will do on the NCLEX!
