im entering my last semester of nursing school :spin:, and we are about to be picking preceptorships.. i currently work as a pca on an ortho floor and i think im going to precept there with hopes of getting a job there after graduation.. i was wondering if you guys could give me some examples of commonly used meds on ortho floors so i can brush up before preceptorship.. ill give you a list of meds i think
are commonly used.
lots and lots of pain meds: tylenol, morphine, percocet, dilaudid, vicodin?
anticoagulants: heparin, lovenox
misc meds for comorbidities: insulins, beta blackers, calcium channel blockers, digoxin, stool softeners, anticholinergics?, protonix, omeprazole, ativan, antidepressants
anything to add? anything i should specifically be concentrating on? thanks, and feel free to give any other helpful advice!
also, anyone have ortho specific worksheets/brainsheets? i have a few good medsurg ones that will suffice just fine, just wondering if theres something better out there.
