Lab Values Nursing NCLEX Review for Nurses and Nursing Students

Lab values nursing nclex-rn, nclex-pn, and ATI review: This video explains the lab values nurses need to know for the NCLEX exam. You’ll need to know these as a nursing student and as a nurse.

Normal lab values are a big thing you’ll want to learn as you prep for your NCLEX exam. You can expect to encounter questions asking about these labs.

As a student prepping for NCLEX, you will want to know about the normal lab values of a CBC (complete blood count), BMP/CMP (basic or comprehensive metabolic panel), lipid panel, coagulation levels, arterial blood gases, and drug levels.

The complete blood count details the cells found in the blood: red blood cells (RBCs), white blood cells (WBCs), platelets, hemoglobin, and hematocrit level.

The metabolic panel details the fluid and electrolyte status of the patient, glucose level, renal, and liver function.

The lipid panel details the patient’s risk for cardiovascular disease (LDL, HDL, total cholesterol, and triglycerides.

The arterial blood gas levels detail the patient’s acid-base imbalance and if a respiratory or metabolic problem exists (blood pH, pCO2, HCO3, pO2, O2 saturation).

The hemoglobin A1C level is helpful in determining the patient’s blood glucose level over the last 3 months.

Coagulation levels are important to determine clotting times, especially in a patient who is taking anticoagulants like Heparin or Warfarin.

Drugs level labs detail the amount of drug in the patient’s system and is crucial in helping determine if a drug is toxic or therapeutic in a patient. Examples of drug levels would be: Digoxin, Dilantin, Lithium, Carbamazepine etc.

    Great video! I appreciate all the knowledge and tips you are passing on. I could surely use your advice though with taking the NCLEX. I've taken it a few times and failed due to test anxiety and being out of the field for a long time. I do have a BSN and did go back to a refresher course which provided both test review and hospital patient care in Florida, even though I reside in New York. Recently, a NY Registered Nurse, who is also a professor getting her PhD, recommended that I take LPN test as it's easier to pass, try to get a job as an LPN, so I can try to gain back some of my skills and understanding before retaking the NCLEX_RN. Please give me some of your feedback. I can be reached here or provide you with an email to discuss further. All of your input and recommendations are greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and please keep up the amazing work you do. Have a great day and week ahead.
