I was wondering, as nursing students, how much access do you have to the floor you are working on's PYXIS? My best friend just graduated from a nursing school
different than what I am going to, and we found some pretty big differences in our education....at my school, we have our own ID number to get into the PYXIS, so we are able to get into the machine to get our meds on our own. The only thing we are unable to get are the controlled substances. At her school, they had to rely on their instructor to get them access into the machine.....once the instructor accessed it for them,she would let them get their meds...also, we practiced on each other to give injections, and will be doing the same for blood draws and IV's....but they were not allowed to do so, they practiced on dummies and went straight into pts......Maybe I just take for granted that we have such a small school, and everything is very much one on one(our clinical groups are no bigger than 7 people)...anyone else have any differences???
