  2. Blood transfusion
    Agree with everybody else. Anywhere from 2 to 4 hours. I usually run units in a shorter time than 4 hours. The only time I run it to reach 4 hours if the pt is elderly, has CHF or renal failure.

  3. PharmD to NP
    If you have a Pharm D it would be better to do a PA program or medical school. I would bypass nursing all together.

  13. vancomycin and peripheral iv's
    I hate giving Vanco through peripherals. At my facility we always run it for 2 hours, usually at 125ml/hr. If they suppose to have Vanco for an extended amount of days, than we asked for a PICC line.

    I love Med-Surg, but 8 patients is way too much! I don't care if you have techs or all the walky-talkies, that is still too much. Sometimes patients are at their worst on night shift. Their condition...
