    Here's the situation: I went into a patient's room I gave her a po antibiotic(doxycycline) and then I gave her IV Solu-Medrol, her daughter, husband, and a friend were all in the room, after I started giving the Solu-Medrol the daughter said, "Shouldn't you have cleaned off the port with alcohol first." I didn't know what to do or say. She made a big fuss about it, so the charge nurse had to fill out an incident report. I know I was wrong, but I would like to know is this a huge error or if it is in fact an error at all. I've been a nurse for about 9 months now. Just need some advice on how to handle this situation when I'm confronted by the DON. What will be the outcome of this?

    Thanks!
    Tim, I'm sure you passed too. How long do you have to wait to find out? Is there a number you can call? I called a 1-900 #. Cost me $7.95 but was worth it!
    Good luck!
    Over here in NC we have to wait at least 10 to 15 business and we don't have the option of calling the 1-900#. So the earliest I will find out is next Friday.

    I remember feeling the same way asking all the same questions: am I suppose to be here, am I doing this right, is everyone else getting it and I'm not. Just try and stay focused and ask as many questions as you need to and you will be alright. Also come here and vent it helps.

    I remember my first semester of A&P and talking about DNA and RNA, that was one of the toughest subjects that we had. It was so hard that the teacher gave up trying to teach it to us, because know one in the class was getting it and he didn't even put it on the test. I'm sure you will do better on the rest of your tests. Good luck.

    I have worked at a nursing home for three years and trust me the elderly aren't as fragile as you might think. Just make sure that you become friends with a strong person in class or someone who works there, because in a nursing home you have to do a lot of lifting not unless it has a Hoyer. It seemed like every week during clinicals at the nursing home I got the CVA residents.

    Best of luck,

    We had to wear all white all the time. Tops, bottoms, shoes, socks, and yes underwear all white. I must say that the male uniforms looked better than the female.

    I took the NCLEX today. The computer stopped after the 85th question, which is the minimum, and my heart just sank. So now I'm feeling depressed and I still have to wait more than a week to find out if i passed. Has anyone else taking it and the computer stopped on the minimum number of questions? If so did you pass?
