    Yes! It means thanks. Where did you find it?
    Wait, I know. You have nothing to do during spring break so you want to start learning Hungarian.
    Katie
    I saw it on the internet a couple of weeks ago and I meant to say it then so I'm glad I remembered how to spell it. I saw that it was Hungarian and it made me think of you

    Our class avg was 80 which is below the 84 needed...not good...

    My major is due tomorrow!!! I don't have time to wait

    AND the best news of it all- CLINICAL WAS CANCELED TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My instructor is sick (which is not good either) but I needed this day so badly. Thank you God!


    I wonder if she will still be out Friday? :uhoh21:

    OK...I have as list for 3rd semester drugs. Providing they don't do away with the "Pharm Tests", I have a question for y'all.


    Did they ever give you 'cards'? If not, are you responsible for what is only found in KEE, or a certain drug book?


    Drug book's info really shouldn't be different, but some give more than the other.

    We ran into that with our med check off -- instructor wanted to know stuff that wasn't on our cards or drug book. Oops.

    No cards, but there is a short review packet for 3rd semester drugs. They say you should use Kee for drug info.

    Ok.....The reason I ask is, as you probably know, the pharm cards have SOOOOOOO much more information than Kee does on most of the drugs.

    hey guys,
    I need some help from you wise 3rd sem. students :spin: ,
    I am doing my nursing diagnosis list for my major care plan
    ok, I have this knowledge deficit diagnosis, I know that normally this would go way down at the end, but what if I have a bunch of risk for diagnosis , do I list those first, and than the actual knowledge deficit diagnosis, ( this one is not a risk for , it is actual), or do I put that one before I start with the risk for...
    I am stuck
    I also have a risk for Powerlessness, so that's confusing me even more.

    My 2nd semester instructor wanted us to put all knowledge deficit dx to the end of our list. What does your instructor want?
    I think if you have a risk for something dx, like risk for infection, then that has priority. Because you can do a lot of things to prevent infection. On the other hand if your pt is a new diabetic pt and requires insulin SQ teaching before discharge then your knowledge deficit dx has priority. Well, I guess the best strategy is to follow Maslow's.
    Did I help you or confused you more? :uhoh21:

    Thanks Katie,
    our instructor has told us nothing, at least I don't remember
    the knwoledge deficit does pertain to diabetis, and funny you mention it , I do have a at risk for infection also.
    Grrrrrrrrr,lol , I guess I put knowledge deficit before the at risk for, since this one is an actual problem.
    Does anyone have a diff. opinion?
  10. by   Fun2, RN, BSN
    My thoughts:

    I put the ABC's and risks of first, then knowledge deficit, then psychosocial last.


    You have to cover the medical risks first. The pt won't need to know about insulin if they become septic. The pt won't need to know about insulin if they can't breath d/t ineffective airway.

    Just my worth. ...May not be right, but that's how I'm doing it.

    Thank you Katie! I am not going to envision myself passing because that didn't work out too well so I will just go in with a mind full of facts and no hope hahaha.
