    If the PCA uses the wrong size BP cuff, the result is going to be wrong. The nurse might pick up on it if the result is too low or too high but if the BP is actually high or low and the wrong cuff...

  4. Where do NPs look for jobs?
    I think they have a website, but not the type of website people actually go to. They're looking for one website for now -- essentially the one that'll gave them the most bang for their buck :)

  8. Questions about getting into cscc nursing program.
    I would recommend getting a job as a PCA/PSA in a hospital throughout the program. It is difficult to get a job as an associate degree nurse in Columbus. The market is over saturated to begin with...

  9. No more glucose checks by CNAs/PCTs
    But the glucometer automatically uploads to the patient chart so it's not like the PCA can chart it wrong or tell the nurse wrong.... it's glucometer to chart. I don't see how this creates an issue?...
