  2. got good pop up and still failed?

  5. EMT's
    I'm an RN that's also a Paramedic. Prehospital care is very different from nursing care. EMT is more akin to CNA in terms of amount of knowledge. Paramedic is more like LVN in terms of knowledge and...

  6. So I just failed out of Nursing School, is there hope after?
    You have to do well in BOTH to graduate from a program. I'm not (and I think few here) saying that you're not going to eventually be a good nurse. I had a friend of mine fail out of nursing school by...

  7. Failing the Nclex-RN, again and again.
    You need to seriously review what the Candidate Performance Report says every time you get one. If the computer is shutting off at 75, I would hazard a guess that there's at least one area that...

  10. Just finished my nclex freaking out!
    The only thing that going 168 questions tells me is that you were very close to the pass/fail line. That is the only thing that tells me. It is also the only thing it tells you. It also means that...

  13. How did you guys make the choice to become nurses?
    Nursing is more an expression of who I am than a calling per se. I got into nursing because of its generalist education which allows for an ability to move into other areas of healthcare, wherever my...

  17. IV catheter changes..
    My understanding as to why field starts were changed within 24 hours of arrival is two-fold: one is that field starts are usually considered to be "dirty" starts (even if they're not), and two is...

  18. Do you know first aid, or even have supplies?
    Coming from a sports med background, I'd say that your first aid kit appears to be pretty well customized for hockey. You might want to add finger splints or tongue depressors to your kit. They won't...

  22. Changing IV tubing with half full bag?
    If hospital policy says they go after 96 hours and there's no order allowing it to stay in place longer than that, I'd say to change the tubing and half-empty bag entirely. IV bags and tubing are...
