Okay, I just HAVE to vent for a moment!!! WHY do we have to turn in a drug card of EVERY SINGLE DRUG our patients are on with side effects, interactions, etc when it is ALL in our drug reference??? It makes sense to look them all up and know what they are for and what to look for in drug reactions and interactions but WHAT IS THE POINT of copying all this info straight out of the drug handbook
to turn in? (of course I will cite it) I know nursing school is a learning experience and I am all for learning these drugs, but I just don't see how this is going to help me to spend hours copying all this info!!
Readers of this post will please realize that the poster was QUITE FRUSTRATED with her nursing department and with school in general when she wrote this! :imbar
