  1. ER nursing
    Now that's profound... and wide open... So... I'll point out that the term "ER" has fallen out of favor - though it's still used idiomatically. The reason, of course, is that in hospitals of...

  2. Help! Bought an online test bank not sure what to do!
    As I've read this thread, I just keep coming back to "caveat emptor" and "if it seems too good to be true it probably is."

  3. CNA vs EKG? for ICU post-grad
    I'm not really sure what you mean by "EKG cert/exp" but presuming that you're talking about some sort of tele tech, that would be a much better choice than working as a CNA. Unless... You could...

  5. One thing I learned today is that honesty will get you nowhere in Nursing School.
    Oh, spare me your wiki-links... People with attitudes like that are precisely why many instructors make it simple... no make-ups... period. There will always be a subset of people who choose to...

    Right... tell the truth, get a zero on the exam, and still manage to pass the course and move on... or lie, get caught, and get expelled.

  7. One thing I learned today is that honesty will get you nowhere in Nursing School.
    One more comment to those who are equating the OP's situation to someone losing their job for oversleeping... That's a totally invalid comparison... What might be a bit more valid: If you...

  8. wanting to stay in contact with a retiring prof
    What do you do? Instead of writing this on this forum, say the same thing to her in person and follow it up with an e-mail to her. This ain't rocket science... just simple interpersonal...

  10. Med. calc & mEq
    If this is the question verbatim, it's a little problematic... and NOT how you would ever see it in practice. The simple answer to "How many mls of KCL will you give?" doesn't require anything to...

  11. 216 Nursing Diagnoses and counting
    I feel like far too many students are trying to "templatize" or "algorithmize" rather than simply think through what they're looking at. I see this most in dose calculations but I think it's just...

  13. ABG Interpretation
    Let’s unpack this down to its fundamentals…. First, the equation that we’re talking about: CO2 + H2O -> H2CO3 -> H+ + HCO3- What does this mean? Simply that carbon dioxide spontaneously...

  14. One thing I learned today is that honesty will get you nowhere in Nursing School.

  15. One thing I learned today is that honesty will get you nowhere in Nursing School.
    OK, tough love time... If you think that "My alarm didn't go off" qualifies as a valid reason to miss an exam, you need to redefine your definition. VALID might be: Acute appendicitis or a...

  17. New Grad - Interviewing in a Trauma ICU
    You ask for "thoughts on going straight to ICU out of school" but I think you've already made up your mind so who cares what anybody else thinks? I will say this: Starting out in any level 1...

    Any joint that has a nurse giving tPA while having 5 other patients should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves... totally inappropriate staffing.
