    Failed My AANP Today, I'm Very Upset

    The board exams are minimum competency exams; they are designed to make sure that a new graduate NP has at least a bare minimum fund of knowledge to safely begin practice in their certification specialty.

    Failed My AANP Today, I'm Very Upset

    This is the part that you need to focus on. You've completed school and clinicals and are about to enter practice and you have been studying and doing review questions for five months. Why are you bumping into questions that are completely foreig...

    Interesting. Macrobid is a strange call for a male with UTIs especially if associated with kidney stones. Listen to his lungs, see if he has a Velcro sound on inspiration, those sharp powerful crackles are a hallmark of ILD/IPF.

    Ahh but that Macrobid induced ILD had clear lungs to auscultation (though clinically you'd expect to hear the dry crackles I'd think). 🙂

    Unusual for wheezing to be a symptom of recurrent UTI? 😉
  6. I don't follow your logic on this about somehow the nursing school being at fault for you not learning from making a dangerous mistake on a simple math question, not even a med calc question. In real life this mistake could be fatal. I know bac...

    Pain medicine to drug addict?

    As described, this is a post-op patient in acute post-operative pain with what sounds like a reasonable and legitimate order for acute pain control from her providers. What does your nursing judgement and common sense tell you is the right thing to d...
  9. I'm not sure if you are responding to my post or someone else (helps to use the quote button) but I'll respond: My post wasn't a judgement on you and it was entirely based on what I know of your situation from what you told us. This is di...
  10. You have two problems: 1. Getting authorization to test, testing, and passing the NCLEX. I'm not sure you could get authorized at this point. If you are able to get authorized to re-test, how are you planning to pass a test 8 years later that yo...
  11. It appears this school was put on probation and then dropped from accreditation from the Florida BON due to abysmal NCLEX pass rates. Like less than 10% for a number of years compared to a national average of >80%.

    Natural "Medicine"?

    Just playing devil's advocate here but: You wouldn't see a problem with putting a patient on a prescription medication as long as they were told there is "no official data" regarding it's efficacy or safety in treating that illness? What about a...

    Natural "Medicine"?

    Are you suggesting this is a negative thing? These are the very things that ensure treatments are safe and effective when compared to either placebo or standard of care. This is how we as health care providers keep patients safe. I suspect w...
