Sequential Order Questions

  1. Hi, I read a post on here but can't find it now. A brilliant woman/nurse gave excellent advice on what to study for the NCLEX. She had amazing recall and hit the key points right on.

    Since I've read her post, I've been trying to find information on sequential order for the following care delivery items:

    Urine culture
    Starting a new iv
    Administering meds via g tube
    Drawing insulins ( clear or cloudy)
    Inserting foley catheters ( males and females)
    Sterile field
    Performing exams such as breast and testicular exam
    Administering ear and eye drops

    Thanks so much, I'm scheduled to take my nclex this Saturday, 8/31, ewww eeeh yikesss...I'm nervous

    I would assume in your nursing text books. Thats where I learned the info.

    I am googling now, so far can't find any. Usually these are clinical procedures. I may have to go and check out my Perry & Potter Book. But a list would really help.

    I may be thick but I have no idea what you mean by "sequential order for the following care delivery items." Most of these are procedures, but a sterile field is an item. Do you mean, putting these in order if they all had to be done for a particular patient? Nah, that doesn't make a lot of sense. Do you mean, how do you do each of these procedures, step by step? That should be in your lab book from school. Or am I missing something entirely?

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought this. OP, can you clarify what you mean?

    I think they are looking for the order you do each step for each procedure/treatment they listed (separately).
