    a chain of infection basically shows how bacteria and viruses get into hosts. The key to staying healthy is breaking this chain.
    The bacteria or virus has to have a place to live and multiple.
    It has to have a way to enter the host (direct contact, kissing, in the air)

    a susceptiple host is someone who does not have immunity to the virus.

    this is why its so important to wash our hands and wear gloves.


    I had to look it up since i'm prenursing..hope i did ok. I have been reading my fundamental book.

    the sticky thread websites has a link in the third message from sandranurse that can link you to a textbook and practice questions that can give you more practice.

    just go to the link and match the chapters topics to your chapter topics and then take the practice test.

    Let's see if I remember this correctly...

    Primary Care is seeking out preventative care...screenings, immunizations, etc.

    Secondary care is management of chronic conditions to prevent further complications...diabetes, htn.

    Tertiary care is to maintain highest level of functioning...MI recovery, rehab, support groups.

    I think that depends on the test. If it's out of a book then yeah probably. If your instructors pull them out of their hind ends then probably not lol
    OUr teachers use some of the same tests every year. I would not feel comfortable do it.

    Go to a bookstore and buy a Fundamentals Success book or something similar if you want more practice questions. You can even google on teh internet for practice questions if money is an issue, or purchase a used book, or check out your local library, your school library, etc. HTH

    yeah, after receiving a B on my test, I did buy that book to become more familiarize with the way nursing tests are written. I was very concerned about the critical thinking and making inferences. The book really helped and by repeating doing them, you will get a hang of it. I just took the second test and I was more confident when answering questions like, "what do you do next?" or "what is the next best step?"
