To all of you wonderful students and nurses out there, thanks for all of the help you give to us other students. But, I come to you once again for some much needed advice.
Night before clinical we have to come in and get all of our clinical prep done. Chart work is fine with me, but med stuff if total hell. I have tried to find ways of making meds memorization easier, but when you have to look up the five rights on each drug, tell how it effects that pt, and do this for 30 different meds, it makes for a long night with little to no sleepwhen its all said and done. I want to be able to tell my pt everything about the drugs they are taking, but now can't seem to get everything together. Have any of you found any cheater methods for med help? I am really needing some help if any of you have any answers.
Do you keep a cheat sheet of the same meds you look up th night before with you when you pass meds? I am only in first qtr and am trying to find cheater methods already.
ANy other help would be appreciated. Gotta go study for a dosage quiz.
