I see everybody says Saunders (no CD-ROM, right?) and Kaplan in most threads. But I'm specifically looking for 1) Mac compatibility and 2) the most questions. What would you recommend for me?
Which emphasizes the point... it is not the employees that he cares about, it's the potential savings.
It's always about the money... and the return for the shareholders... and the executive salaries and bonuses and stock options...
The funny thing about the internet is you can't always tell tone. I never once got from the OP that the poster needed to relax or chill out. It can be seen as a "put down" to tell someone to chill out or relax when they aren't worked up at all.
Your approach sounds balanced. So far in my ADN training, nutrition and exercise seem to be getting glossed over in favor of meds. Alternative therapies and wholistic approaches get mentioned in passing, then every possible drug or surgical intervention gets dwelled on. Good luck with your goals.
Just FYI, some of you are replying to posts that are 9 years old.
No way, no how. Not on a train, not in the rain. Not in a box, not with a fox. Not on a boat, not with a goat.
When I read your title I was thinking teacher's pet not actual pets lol. Anyways, I have no pets. I used to have fishes but it died with many others.... (unfortunately the truth is all my fishes died).
Right now, I'd prefer to watch- unless I'm in a situation where I was the only person there who could save someone. At least one of my instructors has said to use the method you're trained in, and I wouldn't want to have to stop giving compressions to give breaths.
After I renew my CPR in the next few months, and get certified with the new compression-only technique, I'll probably be eager to try it for real.
I can see both sides of this one. It's cultural and traditional, but you're cutting nerve endings in a place where the kid will want them later in life.
You don't have to put others down just because you never had the opportunity to save somebody's life....
I'm reminded of a video I saw once. The CEO of a chain of LTC's said he spent $60K to buy lift equipment, and it saved him $2 million a year in workman's comp and lawsuits.
You don't have an NDX book? There are several "risk for" NDX's- including at least 2 specifically nutrition-related ones. Your program is probably just discouraging you from using "risk for" NDX's to keep you more focused on the short term. An MDX or condition is NOT an NDX.
The general format for an NDX goes like this:
2a. related to (etiology or cause)
2b. secondary to (MDX)
3. as evidenced by (prominent sign or symptom).
Note: "Risk for" NDX's don't have the as evidenced by.
You put it together like this:
NDX r/t etiology aeb sign or symptom.
Hope this helps.
I can't believe this thread is still alive. I can't add any new thoughts by this point, but I can summarize the two main thoughts succinctly:
1. The word nurse is evolving so that it is becoming gender neutral. It's almost there already for most people.
2. If you're not proud to be called a nurse, it's your problem.
Marion Diamond's lectures do rock, tho I often wonder how she survived around all that chalk dust! LOL
I got a list of books to check out, not sure how useful the list is? But maybe some veteran nurses and/or nursing students could comment on it??? I am starting in September as well.
Drug Handbook 2011
Med/Surg Reviews and Rationale
Nursing Diagnosis Handbook
Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary
Rapid Interpretation of EKGs
Pharmacology and the Nursing Process
Thank you!!! :heartbeat
As someone already suggested, sign up for more books on evolve.
Also, you can often find questions by searching "(name of topic) nclex questions" or "(name of topic) practice quiz".
