  1. I made my first and hopefully last med error it didn't harm the patient but I still feel awful and stupid. While I was giving the meds I wa supposed to administer 975mg of Tylenol and 300mg of Gabapentin (for neuropathic pain), I gave the correct dose of Tylenol however while I was checking the med strip there was only 100mg of Gabapentin and the order was changed that morning, I didn't realize until after I screwed up. My clinical teacher gave the extra 200mg even though there might have been an error from Pharmacy it was my fault and I'm an idiot im in my last year of PN. This has never happened to me before I feel terrible, I feel ashamed, bad for the patient and like I'm a complete moron.
  2. I'm pretty sure I failed it despite studying the past week for it, I'm so stupid for a postop laxative to reduce straining I chose an oxyomotic rather than stool softener and for dilantin side effect I didn't choose insomnia. Why cant I think logically? I'm a failure might as well drop out at this point 😔

    Stuck on Anatomy Question

    I read the chapter of the nervous system in my textbook and searched on Google and cant find the answer to this question? "What type of neural circuit permits both conscious and subconcsious control of the same motor neurons?" Does anyone know the answer?

    Should I resign and drop out of school?

    Thanks I really appreciate the help and advice! I need to find another job at a better facility or just leave longterm care all together, it's not worth putting my health or career at risk because management sets you up to fail. I do admit to making a mistake however based on managements rule for honour guard I was left on the floor by myself. I have been a nervous wreck lately and need to treat my anxiety so that I can start building self confidence and bettering myself as a person.
  5. I was having a really rough night at work, I work as a psw/cna and we aren't allowed to use soaker pads at the longterm care home I work at anymore because they are "a risk for residents developing skin tears" I had to strip multiple residents beds 3 times and we often don't have enough linen to do out job because they got rid of 24 hour laundry in a longterm care home. I had finished changing the residents bed when I noticed his shirt was soaking wet so, I went to his closet to find a shirt as we didnt have any hospital gowns and I forgot to put the bed down and he sat himself up in bed and fell on his backside as I was coming back to the bed with his shirt. I'm probably going to get fired and charged now and kicked out of nursing school, I'm so useless and stupid 😔.

    That makes sense! Is there a chance you could get a rewrite if you were unsuccessful?

    What school do you go to? In our program anything above a 60 is a pass
  9. I always thought, I was stupid, I really dont know why the college I'm in accepted me into nursing school, I may have an 82% average currently but that means nothing. I'm slow at work as a CNA and, I said something incredibly stupid, I always say stupid things it's why, I dont answer questions in class anymore lll know lll be wrong. I feel like I know absolutely nothing, tonight a resident fell at work no visible pain had full range of motion in upper and lower extremities no visible injuries or bruising and was oriented and alert. I was able to get her into a sitting position with the help of a coworker and, I thought we could've stood her up even though work policy is no lift, but the nurse suggested we use the lift to get her up, I stubbornly thought she could've stood up when, I asked my mom about it after work she said the resident could've had a hairline fracture. I'm such an idiot for not thinking of that 😞. I'm a pain in the rear to work with a burden and a thick headed moron 😞.
  10. Okay, I may be wrong but the equation is d/h*q and for the first one, I went 550/200*5 to get 13.75 which, I rounded to 13.8mL and for the second ones, I went with 750/250*1=3mL and 450/350*1=1.285 rounded to 1.3mL
  11. Erythromycin Ethylsuccinate oral suspension bottle instructs you to add 53 mL of water and shake vigorously. This makes 100 mL suspension for a concentration of 200mg per 5mL. Refrigerate after mixing. pt care orders read: give 550mg of Erythromycin Ethylsussiante by mouth every 8 hours. How much will you administer? Ceftriaxone 1 g reconstituting options, option 1: add 3.6 mL of sterile water to obtain 250mg/mL concentration Ordered Ceftriaxone 750 mg IV q 6 h How much will you draw up? Ordered Ceftriaxone 450 mg IV q 4 h How much will you draw up?

    Should, I giveup?

    I'm really worried that, I might be too stupid to continue on with nursing school, there were a few incidents earlier on in the week and they way, I answered and the questions and what, I said made me feel that, I'm really stupid. The first question, I answered incorrectly class was about a 78 year old patient who has lung cancer and he was saying that "he wasn't going to have surgery and it was god's will that he die". I stupidly said that we have to respect his wishes not to have surgery while, I missed the point that the reason he could be refusing is because he is depressed. The second one the scenario was there was a patient that was suspected of being intoxicated but the teacher didn't specify what he was intoxicated with so, I assumed alcohol and the answer i gave was checking the patients blood alcohol when doing an assessment and the correct answer was actually checking the patients blood sugar. The entire class laughed at me, I feel like such a moron, I should just stay a psw and not bother continuing on with my education because, I'm just too stupid. The next day, I talked to the teacher after class about a subject that, I thought was a moral dilemma which is parents who refuse to vaccinate their children, when, I asked the teacher if he thought it was child abuse he rolled his eyes at me. He also then asked me how likely it was percentage wise for a nurse to die working at home or working for the military, I once again said something incredibly stupid, I said 25% of dying when working at home and 75% working for the military. I should've realized, I'm just too stupid and not cut out for nursing or really any career that requires a brain.

    Am, I in over my head or out of my league?

    Well, I did fine with the skills in psw although those are much simpler, the ones in pn will be more complex. I just started school.
  15. I'm in my first year of practical nursing and, I have doubts that, I might be too stupid or incompetent compared to people coming out of high school or prehealth with higher grades than me, my high school average was 80%, 79 in Physics, 83 in English, 72 in math, 80 in chem and 85 in bio, I got a 3.8 GPA in PSW. After the first week, I feel like I might be too stupid and out of my league compared to others who are smarter than me.
