  2. Stop! Is that Assessment Really Necessary?

  8. I received this email from a professor. I was a little shocked. Opinon?
    We have a winner! I was wondering when this would devolve into typical high school backbiting. I also noted all the other replies saying, "we talk about you nursing students." I am sure some people...

  16. Would you ever ask another nurse to give your pt a suppository?
    Binary, how many different types of suppository do we usually give? It's either APAP or a laxative. Thr only trouble I can fathom if it's belladonna & opium.
