quick cpne question!!!

  1. during my august 2008 cpne experience, i was not required to take vitals twice, but the study guide says to take them twice.

    do i have to take them twice??? or do i just retake them if i question my first results?:spin:

    In the study guide, where it says to take them twice is actually under the heading of "suggestions for success." You are not required to take them twice. The only thing I took twice was the manual BP on my first patient. I was 100% certain of everything else during my PCSs, so I didn't bother to waste my time repeating the vitals.

    Yup, I only had time for one set of vitals on my first PCS. That was fine.
