NCLEX Diabetes Mellitus Practice Question on Insulin | Pharmacology Review
NCLEX pharmacology practice question on Insulin for the patient with diabetes mellitus. This NCLEX-style question will test your knowledge about Insulin Lispro (Humalog) and wants to know when the patient is at most risk for hypoglycemia based on the time you administered the medication.
On the NCLEX exam, it is inevitable you will receive pharmacology type questions. This particular NCLEX practice question will require you to determine what type of insulin Lispro is (rapid, short, intermediate, or long-acting) and when a patient is at most risk for hypoglycemia (onset, peak, duration).
This video is part of a weekly NCLEX review series where I will be going over NCLEX-style questions with you. I will be helping you analyze and breakdown each question, and walk you through how to select the correct option.
NCLEX questions require critical thinking and you must know how to use your nursing knowledge to gather the facts and analyze what the question is asking.

Watch the video for the correct answer and rationale.
