I don't think we do students a disfavor by giving them the answers. What with the internet, it's simple to just Google, go to MedLine, etc.
And before someone chimes in that this is "nurses eating their young," please...many of us managed to get through school the old fashioned way; we went to the library and looked the stuff up.
Your right about giving students the answers however, it was around 11pm when I needed some advise. It's after 1 am here...I have clinicals in about 6 hours.....I have like 3 books open at once...not finding enough info in them.....My computer is always on when doing my homework, that way, I can get quick info if I can't get it in the books.
I know about rhabdomyolysis and how it effects the kidneys to the cellular level. My client I'm assigned to has it. He's in his early 20's, got drunk and passed out.....sleeping with no heat....woke up almost in the afternoon the next day (Winter) and it was still cold. dx: Acute renal & rhabdomyolysis. He's been on dialysis since March 20 something....and still today.
I just needed 3 Nursing Dx.....But, it's okay I already have it.
