    Good luck to you. I will be a 2nd year ns starting Monday. The one big thing that helped me is not to focus on everything that has to be accomplished or graded on. I did that my first semester and almost had a nervous breakdown. I just could not see how all of this was going to be accomplished by myself in 16 weeks. So I got a monthly calendar, which I still do, which fits in my binder and I only look at what's due and going on for that week. Trust me when I say your instructor will definitely remind you when a test is coming, they always do. Keep you faith on high and cry if you need to cry but then tell satan to step back because we got things to do.

    Thank you jja224, I did not even see your answer posted because it actually took me this long on pen and paper to do the problem and I did not move off of "post comment". I left it open while I was do this. Thanks a lot.

    Okay you guys, this is my answer and I hope I listen to you all.

    Order: Magnesium sulfate 40 g in 500 ml IV solution. Start with a bolus of 3 g to infuse over 30 minutes. Then maintain a continuous infusion at 2 g/hr

    Rate: 75____ ml/hr for bolus 37.5 ml____________ Infusion pump limit

    Rate: 25____ ml/hr for continuous infusion 462.5 ml_____________ Infusion pump limit

    Okay but this may look very dumb. I apologize for the confusion in advance :-)

    40g/500ml = 3g/x ml cross multiple and I get x = 37.5 ml/hr. So since its 3 g to infuse over 30 mins then its rate is 6 ml/hr. This may be wrong but this is honestly how far I can go. And would the infusion pump limit be 500 ml?

    Hi everyone, can anyone PLEASE explain to me how to solve this question? I will greatly appreciate it.

    That is what irritates me about the internet. People just read what they want into something not what was actually written.[/QUOTE]

    I just finished my first week of ns and I am still just trying to absorb it all in, I guess. It's was a lot of information thrown in different ways by four instructors for classroom, lab, and clinical and I still scratch my head as to why the school considers this just a 8 credit course (part time). lol. My plan is to focus on no more than a week or two at a time because if I think about everything our instructors went over on the syllabus, a meltdown will be the least of my issues. Hopefully I can find at my YMCA a nice yoga or meditation class because I really need it. Good luck to everyone starting, in the middle, and finishing nursing school this semester. We will make it.

    Chemistry wasn't my friend either but I made a "B" in the class. Use this second chance to study a lot before class begins. See if there are any youtube chemistry lectures or other websites about chemistry you can view online. I know that sometimes its good to hear information again from somewhere else before it sinks in. Do your chapter reviews in your textbook and if you still don't understand sign up for tutoring when school begins. If its available take up the offer. You can do it, just stay focus. Good luck to you.

    Sorry to hear about your car, mine was in the shop too so I feel you. This semester I took Med. Terminology -A, Nutrition -A, and Spanish 111 + lab -A.

    I can't believe fall semester starts in two more weeks for me. Good luck to you and to everyone else.

    I know that I'm going to see some things that may blow my mind BUT the biggest stressor for me is the possibility of hurting someone more than the reason they are present in the medical facility. I pray that I do not react and look like a deer caught in headlights or something worst.
    P.S. I'm still learning how to drive a wheelchair.
