I guess Im in the school that a little bit of pain is ok.
Ahhhhhhh I sense you need a hug this morning lovely_rn!!!!
*BIG GIANT HUG*
I am not a nurse as of yet. However, at clinicals my eyes are wide open, and my eyes see things through the lense of 25 years of management experience....
I have a 2.0 GPA, a criminal record, and I'm pregnant. What are my chances of getting into nursing school? Should I wait to apply until after the baby is born? Should I wait until I'm paroled?
Also--do these pants make me look fat?
here is the last one i used when i was an actively working hospital nurse:
I doubt that everyone who feels the way the OP feels would provide substandard care - perhaps they have a strong work ethic that will not allow them to complete a job (provide care) at any less than 100 percent. Or if not work ethic, perhaps fear of liability...a caring attitude is great but some people can even take that to the extreme of attachment.
Is this book required, or is it a tool to learn the math? I have a friend that graduated in October and she said that the students were "on their own" to learn the math, that there was no required math text. I know things change, though ![/quote]
Yes it is required and yes you will basically learn the math on your own. Make absolutely certain you get the Kee clinical calculations with access to the online course. What happens is that you will work through the book on your own online and your lab instructor will check your work and quizzes and such through the online course. You need a medical dictionary of some sort, I have Mosby's on my PDA, its ok but I would rather have Tabers. What you do not need for 1500's are any of the recommended books or the APA manual. You can find lots of info on APA format online.
"Clinical Calculations, Kee, 5th edition?"
That is the correct one. The other two you will use the most in 1500's and 1600's are the Taylor one Sugar mentions, Fundamentals in Nursing and then Health Assessment for Nursing Practice by Wilson.
Feel free to send a pm is you have any other questions.
