I am applying for the NCLEX now and yet to get my ATT.
I have been trying to answer some review questions but I feel like none of the items I study are retained, and I dont seem to have the motivation to really study, and dont know where to start. I am just extremely overwhelmed by the amount of information that I need to remember. Its been almost 10 years since I last sat for the license exam in my home country, so I have no idea anymore as to the current trend of the nursing exams. Also, working as a nurse focused in adult medical surgical meant that peds, maternal & child, and psych will be my areas of weakness. I dont want to sign up for review classes, but I have my reviewer on hand.
I need advice and tips. help
Where do you work as a wound care nurse? In our wound care unit, we use either normal saline or a cleaning solution form a company I cannot "advertise" here. We usually just irrigate the wounds, and soak the wound bed for a few minutes with a piece of gauze and saline or wound cleanser. We can gently wipe the wound and lift some loose slough and fibrin layer, but we never scrub.
