    The main things to remember with antibiotics:1. Do NOT take with foods except cephalosporins and sulfonamides. Cephaplosporins take with MILK!2. People on birth control need to use a barrier method.3. Check for Penicillin allergy to any -cillin or CEPHALOSPORIN! (cross rx)4. Vancomycin: ototoxicity and nephrotoxicity! Also "red man" syndrome from histamine release5. Tetracycline: no for breastfeed and children under 8. Photosensitivity 6. Ciprofloxacin: no for breast feed and under 18. 7. EDUCATION: Always complete the therapy even if patient feels better! Those are my take away "important" nursing facts about antibiotics. I hope it helps!! You're going to be fine, really!

    I know the feeling and as the days get closer its not going to get any easier of a feeling for us. This is crunch time now and as long as we keep out eyes on the prize we can do this!!! I honestly think you have nothing to worry from what I hear about your scores + your dedication to studying you are very smart and I think you'll do great. I on the other was always an average student in nursing school and just got by so for me I have that much more stress over things because I feel that I might not just get by on this NCLEX! But just pray and keep faith and I'm sure well have nothing to worry about
    Thank you I will be praying for us both! If you don't mind me asking - what time do you take yours (mine is 8 am Pacific time)? I will be wishing you the best. I am going to keep working on reviewing content tonight & today I took QT 7 and got 78% so I'm feeling a bit better. Tomorrow I'll take the readiness exam, see where I sit.

    Thank you everyone for the tips. I too take my test on 15th at 8am. I've been doing Saunders only and I'm really hoping that was enough. This stress is too much! Good luck to you guys :-)

    So today didnt actually go as planned lol... I actually took it kind of easy....
    >I reviewed the rationales for Qtrainer 7 which took me a while...
    >I also started reviewing the medication section in the 'RN Course Book' from Kaplan.

    I am not quite done with that though..I will be reviewing meds from Saunders which I think is set up a little more appealing to learn from but that is just in my opinion.

    Tomorrow will be my last day of STUDYING for content...OMGosh you guys (Maria L, C H I C A G O_RN, and VeronikaRN) we have only 2 days left!!! THINGS JUST GOT REAL lol

    I will pray on things tonight and for the next few nights for us! We can do this and we all will soon have that RN behind our names!!!
