My first semester of Nursing school is going amazing! I've been in clinicals for two weeks now and I only have 3 weeks left of my first semester after this week is over... I have not had time for anything but reading, studying and homework since starting Nursing school. I'm usually reading from the time I get up till the time I go to sleep, when I'm not in class... I've been so exhausted that I've been going to sleep at like 7ish... How is everyone else doing?
I have a quick question. I'm doing a group project on inserting a Nasogastric tube and I can't find any information anywhere on what to educate the patient on (What patient education do you do when you have to insert a NG tube?) ... None of the instructors will help us or even show us the proper procedure for anything that we need to know how to do... We have to teach ourselves the procedures we need to know for our finals... And our final case won't be decided until we walk in the door on the last day... We'll either have to do a NG tube insertion, Ostomy, Enema, Enteral feeding tube insertion, wound change, or there is another one... Does anyone know where I can find a step by step for those procedures?
Any info will be greatly appreciated!
