Hi, I'm a Freshman nursing student and I'm working on my abbreviations and definitions for lab. You would think that they would give us things that we could find in our text book or our medical dictionary, but Noooo
Anyway, I've been looking in my texts and even googling the terms and have come up with nada, so I'm hoping some brilliant soul from allnurses can help me out.
Can you tell me what these things mean or at least point me to a website where I can find them myself?
amb cass (there is supposed to be a space after c and a s s but it didn't let me type it out)
Also, I'm having trouble finding functional position. Seems to be a rather simple term, but I found nothing about it in my texts.
Thanks in advance!

It may sound stupid but I am not yet a nursing student but am studing to be a CNA and I was wondering if there was a abbrv. for 2 weeks, 3 weeks. Like a shot every 2 weeks or does that need to be written out?
I was also taught to use et instead of and in nursing school. We can no longer use qd,qod,ms,mso4,cc,u, the few that come to mind. Qd and cc are killing us. We spend most of the day writing clarification orders since our pharm no longer accepts any of these abbreviations. Having trouble getting alot of the docs use to not using them, but it's getting better. Still catch myself using them from time to time. Old habits are hard to break. Have seen qweek or q2wks,etc used.
