  1. Vigileo monitors
    Who out there is using Vigileo monitors? In which patients do you find them most useful? Also, I know SVV is inaccurate in A fib/ other arrhythmias. Is the same true for the other parameters?...

    In my unit (MICU) ICU RN's run CRRT- we are still 2 patients/ nurse, but only one patient per nurse can be on CCRT. Even when your patient is fairly stable, it can still be busy with the frequent...

  10. UTHSC at Houston FNP MSN Interview vs Acceptance
    Maybe they did part time first? Idk. I still don't know why a select few found out a couple weeks ago that they were in. I just wish I knew the reason behind it all.

  11. UTHSC at Houston FNP MSN Interview vs Acceptance
    Same here! But at least that means they are working on it! It kinda sounds like they update myUTH at the same time they put together your acceptance packet. It would be so much more efficient if they...

  15. UTHSC at Houston FNP MSN Interview vs Acceptance
    @Julia77063 I think its per year. The director said ~20 per expected graduating class, and everyone graduates the same semester whether you start in the summer or fall. At TWU, I think its like 15....

  16. UTHSC at Houston FNP MSN Interview vs Acceptance
    @Jenifer819 I know right??? Such a small class! I've been checking myUTH obsessively. As far as I know they are supposed to have all decisions for FNP and ACNP on Monday the 15th because that's the...
