Electric Electrolytes Review

Electric Electrolytes: An NCLEXⓇ Review

Attention graduating nursing students…the NCLEX is coming! Picmonic nursing scholar, Josh Lawler, BSN, RN, is ready to help you prep with one last comprehensive review of electrolytes for the NCLEX.

And…Here it is! A Review of Electrolytes for the NCLEX [WATCH NOW]

Electrolytes are minerals with an electric charge that can be found in your blood, urine, body tissues, other bodily fluids,1 and even outside the human body (maybe more so, but I’m not a molecular chemist, so please humor me). Electrolytes serve many functions in the body including:

  • Fluid and pH (acid/base) balances
  • Movement of nutrients into your cells
  • Metabolic waste out of your cells
  • Physiologic functions such as cardiac or nerve conduction

In his webinar, Josh covers:

  • Sodium (Na+)
  • Calcium (Ca2+)
  • Potassium (K+)
  • Chloride (Cl-)
  • Magnesium (Mg2+)
  • Phosphate (PO43-)

I began my 14-year medical/ “Mursing” career as a Combat Medic for the Army Reserve. Shortly after completion of my BSN, I commissioned into the U.S. Army as an Army Nurse and began my tour of duty at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, TX. My adventures have brought forth a beautiful wife, three red-headed children, and two dogs (Whisky and Pancakes). We’ve lived in Arkansas, Texas, Kansas, Texas (yes, twice), Washington and Missouri. As of this captain’s log, I’m working on completion of my BSN-DNP program at Missouri State University to become a family nurse practitioner. My prior experience and friends in medical-surgical, outpatient primary/specialized care, nursing administration, and emergency/trauma nursing (MY FAVES) motivate me to guide, mentor, teach, learn from, share bread with, play dodgeball against, and be inspired by the next generation of not only nurses and APRNs, but the entire medical and allied health community.
