My current clinical instructor is driving me insane. She is asking us questions about our drugs at clinicals and we need to know their action down to the cellular level. Let me tell you most of my clinical group has the dang drug book memorized as far as the drug actions, and THOSE AREN'T ENOUGH!!!!!!!!! We basically give her the drugs books defination of the action word for word and then she goes "and?" I am thinking if it wasn't important enough to go into the drug book or the huge PDR I own, the nurse isn't going to need it on a daily basis. I wanted to challenge her to ask any RN on that Cardiac Step Down unit the questions she was asking me and see if they could answer them.
She is an excellent instructor, but geesh this is driving me nuts, I can't find any drug reference book that gives that much detail down to the cellular level of the drugs. If anyone knows of one let me know!!!! Thanks for letting me vent!!!
Hugs to all!
