  3. What graduate degrees can a nurse pursue?
    I'm trying to choose a graduate degree program to go into.. But none of the 'traditional' nursing master/doctorate degrees particularly appeal to me at this point. What other specialties can you...

  4. Good Hours for Single Mom?

  5. Good Hours for Single Mom?
    That's the problem. Only have one living grandparent in the area, no other family. The grandparent that is here is getting dementia- and was watching her at night, but cannot any longer-- she...

  8. Bizarre Case- Any guesses?
    Yeah, I was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt since he said he was on the Suboxone ONLY at this point. Then again, when has a druggie patient ever been honest with me? Never. So..

  10. Bizarre Case- Any guesses?
    Ok- so I found out a couple more details.. Apparently he had a history of IV drug use, but apparently was on the Suboxone for treatment from that. The docs decided he has some sort of infection...

  11. Bizarre Case- Any guesses?
    That's interesting. It makes sense in this scenario.. As far as I know, he did not shoot drugs-- then again, we were going off of his parent's word as he was unable to tell us much. So no telling.. ...

  16. Bizarre Case- Any guesses?
    But the rest of the picture doesn't fit with DIC. I work on a cardiac stepdown unit, we get patients with rhabdo all the time- but never like this. I've never seen a K+ rise despite such...

  17. Bizarre Case- Any guesses?
    I agree, I do think he was septic to some extent. But I've never seen WBC's change that quickly! 23 to 78 in three hours! The temp went down to 94.. PT/PTT were ok. D-dimer I do not think was...
