    60. Which of the following poses the greatest risk for electrolyte imbalance?
    [*]Inadequate dietary intake[*]Dehydration[*]Diuretic therap[*]Anticoagulant
    hi everyone, lets try to answer this question for crne october....) thanks.
    My answer is Diuretic therapy especially loop diuretics because it directly affects potassium, it promotes potassium excretion that's why when clients are taking loop diuretics (eg. furosemide) usually patients are prescribed with potassium supplement or advised to increase potassium in diet.

    For some those who (especially IENs) are confused about the scope of practice of RN and RPN you can check this pdf file by CNO ---> http://www.cno.org/Global/docs/prac/41062.pdf

    Hello missysg, I will try my best to answer your question.

    Yes, the person can refuse to do it if the person feels that he is not competent, but, he should take measures in order to gain knowledge and experience of that particular procedure being expected from him. For example, an newly grad RN's first time to actually handle a patient with tracheostomy and hasn't performed an actual tracheostomy care, he should inform the charge nurse, senior nurse or nursing supervisor that he needs assistance because it is his first time to do it. He can also ask for an in-service so he gains the knowledge and experience he needs.


    You can check the compendium for nurses, it is available at the CNO website. They explained the scope of practice of RN, RPN and UCP's. The Fundamental of Nursing by Potter and Perry also has some notes regarding delegation in every procedure. You can check that out as well.

    I hope I answered your question.
    Hi kheemooy...

    Thanks for the reply.
    I guess the words 'not authorized by legislation' confused me. In my mind I was asking 'how can a health professional delegate a job to someone who is not authorized by legislation to do some professional task'. Well now I understand.

    Hi , sorry to hear that bad news. I am IEN and even I am writing CRNE in October for the first time.
    I would like to now what difficulties you faced in the examination hall; whether you could not attend all the questions or the questions were very tough, you have never came across??? Please tell your experience so that it will be a very good help for the future candidates.
    Thanks in advance.

    honestly it all depends on you how well you are prepared. the ???'s in exam are very wierd and vague. looked easy but very tricky specially if english is your second language like me ;(. questions are pterry long like paragraph. i had to read it 3 time to ensure what they are asking. don't mean to scare you. attempting all the questions on time depends on your time mgmt. i finished all the questions on time yet failed. my friend she missed 15 questions and she passed. basically you need to nkow all the diseases, their side effects nursing interventions, meds: side effect, waht food to take, which one to avoid, pt's education, prevention, health promotion, all nursing skills and procedures such as wound drainages, iv, foley catheter, chest tubes, picc, cvc, code of ethics, how you communicate with your pt, how to deal with conflict within health care team etc etc....i don't know how am i suppose tp prepare myself this time...wish you all the best...

    Thank you very much for giving the facts of the exam. I am going through mosby's review book and med-surg book for main disease conditions only. Moreover, doing some questions daily. I do not know what's the best way for preparation, however, just trusting God and going ahead.
    And please tell me, how many questions were there when you wrote the exam and what was the passing mark. Thank you very much.
