Anybody in St.Louis/Illinois know anything about Lutheran School of Nursing in St. Louis?
Is there anyone who has attended St. Charles Community College nursing program?
I work at Target, who is very great about working around your hours, plus I will be starting soon at a hospital (as a CNA) where they will let me work as little as 4 hours a day, whenever I can get there after school.
Hey, I am a CNA right now, starting nursing school in the spring. I took my state test November 12th. I think that being a CNA will help with the nursing program; I was an NA for 2 months while taking my CNA class and learned so much with helping the nurses change dressings and colostomy bags and lots more. Don't worry, I was SO nervous when I took my state final-butterflies in my stomach! My test examiner wasn't right up in my face and if I forgot something, she usually reminded me (like in the shower, when I kept forgetting my steps!) Also, another student missed 16 questions on the test (you could miss 15) and the examiner read it very slowly and the girl got it right and passed! My instructor says they really aren''t out to flunk yu; they know you have been training, etc. Sorry this is long, good luck with your tests, if you have any questions, let me know, firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts and advice! My BF is doing much better. His temp is down to 99.2, and he ate 2 bowls of soup today! (He hasn't eaten in 5 days!) Again, thank you so much! You guys are great! :-)
Walmart's scrubs are either $9.97 or $12.97 depending on the style. Their jackets are $15.87. I don't know if there is a Scrubs and Beyond store where you live, but they have the top and bottom for $14.99 together.
thanks so much cheerful!
He is 24, healthy, white male, has never had any health problems.
His temp. is now 103.9, the doc that saw him in the ER said that the scripts that he wrote should "cover" my BF. He has taken 3 Tylonel gelcaps 3 hours ago and has drank two bottles of water--but he has trouble swallowing and then usually coughs up mucas.
Thanks for answering me, BTW. The nurses in the ER were so rude to me!
I'm sorry to be asking you all this--please don't answer if you don't want to, but hospital in my area is not being very cooperative and I'm just starting nursing school, so I don't know.
Yesterday at 4pm, my boyfriend got very tired, weak, chills, fever was 102.6. Hospital said don't bring him in, that he just has the flu. This afternoon, it reached 103.4, so I brought him to the hospital. They hooked him up to an IV, gave him anti-biotics and fluids, took blood, x-rays. They said he has pneumonia and the flu. They released him with 4 prescriptions and with a temp of 101.
It's now 10 pm, he took all these medicines 3 hours ago and now he has chills, is coughing up mucus, can't move and his temp is 103.2. ER says don't bring him back up, just rest at home.
I'm worried for him and don't know what to do. He's in terrible pain.
I just found out on Monday, they actually called me at 9am Friday morning, asked me to come down at 9:30am. I have so much to do, classes start Jan.5th! And they told me they still had a lot of people to contact--makes me worried they are so disorganized!
I also have Nursemates Senneca shoes--they are very comfortable, I love them! I do have a pair of Birks though that I don't wear for school/work, but I was thinking of getting a white pair for school--they are also very comfortable!
I took Lexapro earlier this year and suffered no side effects. Don't know if you considered that.
Thanks for all the replys, I wish everyone at my work felt this way! Iwill keep on feeding her. I have another question too. This same residnt has a teddy bear that she always keeps in her lap and she calls it her baby. She really thinks it is her baby and she she doesn't have any other children (she does) only this "bear" baby. When feeding her I said, let's eat for the baby and that really helped her to eat to. Is that wrong to encourage to eat using the "baby"?
It is sad! No one ever feeds her, they just say oh,she is on hospice. But if you sit downa nd help her, then she eats! People where I work just never wat to take extra time! Errr, makes me mad!
