well i guess it's my time to roll with this cpne thing...i will be leaving for the dreaded hour drive about 12 pm tomorrow...i know my mnemonics and don't ready feel much stress actually if you want to know the truth i am kind of mad cause i cant get my 30 min phone call from a adviser ..they say there are none available to talk to before i take this darn thing...i only need one call to clear up some loose ends... i am a very determined and take control person so i hope i can pull this off.

one thing i discovered is a wonderful mnemonic for all the lab sim but wound...i got it from the epn discussion board....

s- select med

c- calculate

i - id patient

g- glove

a- assess/ aspirate

r- record

s- sign

whoever created this god bless you...this through everything together for me and now i can quite sweatin over looking for a mneumonic to cover the areas...i have the wound down. but worry a little bit about sterile technique and contamination....

Good luck to you and lots of prayer coming your way. It can be done and you sound prepared. Remember to use your grid! I even wrote out mnemonics on each of my lab stations. Got some funny looks , but it was my $1900 and my sanity!
