    Have noticed people with psycological problems have the worst kind of eating habits. Again and again have had them tell me they fast from the time they get up in the late in the morning untill early or late evening when they start to binge. At that point they stuff themselves continously with unhealthy foods untill they finally sleep which is usually between 2 and 4am. They then get up the late the next morning or in early afternoon and start the whole thing again. People who are mentally and physically healthy have completely different eating and sleeping habits. When a person tells me they live like this I know they got problems.
    OR they are a nurse ... well i gues your right

    :hatparty: woo hoo! pharmacology!!!

    any who - my best advice to you is to start by studying the drug "classifications".. that will give you a broader knowledge base. then study the "prototype" drug or the most commonly used one... this process has helped me a lot through nursing school.. plus, if you have a study guide to accompany your pharm text, use it!!! i found the exam questions derived from there...
    good luck!
    i have found that studying my pda davis dg has been awesome it like flash cards!!!! because of the way that the screens rool and menus popup

    if you watch closely they do change gloves between trauma rooms sometimes but i never see them wash hands, also not sure if you guys are aware but i think michel crichton is an md from harvard med i am pretty sure i read that. i am an avid watcher i love the show been watching since 93 and have to admit it was the show that got me interested in medicine. also there are some really good shows on tlc and discovery health... the critical hour, and trauma life in the er are great shows. the critical hour has had a few episodes from new orleans and charity hospital from where i am from.

    I use ePocrates on my desktop and PDA. It will check for interactions for up to thirty medications and herbals. It lacks some of the information that you will find under the heading "Nursing Implications" in the hardcopy of Davis's Drug Guide, so I haven't been able to divorce myself of the book. It's a major assest to have ePocrates on the PDA when I'm passing medications during clinicals. You can get a trial version. Here is a URL for some PDA applications (free):

    does epocrates come for PC os or just palm os ?

    Thanks

    hello my name is mat price and i am from georgia, i start nursing school in the fall at brunau university where i am pursuing a bsn, and hopefully bs in microbiology soon after.(i have taken all science major level science courses for my degree requirements) so it just a matter of adding a few more micro courses to finish) i am 29 years old and have aspirations of medical school but i think my age is going to be a determining factor and i really enjoy microbiology so i may peruse that instead of an m.d.i am married and have a 17 year old step son. (math looks funny i know but i am sure you can figure it out ) i am one of silly over achiever types who pouts when i get a 95 instead of a 100 and actually enjoy college. i have so much i want to do and it is my intention to work a baylor shift so that i can continue my education what ever that may be whether it is medical school or gradate work in microbiology (hopefully slipping in an advanced nursing degree along with micro work) i know it seems like a lot but i work full time now and go to school full time and am able to keep a 3.97( [font='times new roman']gratuitous gpa plug... i used to be a real dummy almost failing out of college on my first attempt when i was right out of high school so i am proud of myself now) so i think i can swing..... well maybe i would like to start sleeping hehe i even took the dreaded split session a&p i and ii (meaning both classes in one semester) along with introduction to microbiology in the same semester j should not have done that i didn't sleep for 3months heheh. anywho i enjoy reading the board and have for a long time i just recently changed user names ect and decided i should start posting

    as you can tell i still don;t know what i want to do when i grow up cheers
