    Worried About I.v.'s

    I am in LPN school right now, I will graduate in December of this year. I have to take IV therapy and all the things you listed that you are worried about we (in Louisiana) have to learn. I can understand your concern. I am pretty sure LPN's that are not IV certified will need to be before they can hang meds. This should also take some work off of RN's that are constantly having to hang meds for the LPN's on the floor.

    What did you think about Human A&P?

    I really enjoyed A&P, it is a bit difficult if you don't review it every night. A&P is basically learning all the body systems and how they work. You dont get into any diseases or anything like that. Its all pretty basic, but what makes it difficult is the amount of time you have to learn it. I earned my B+ :)....Good luck!

    Got fired today

    I feel you...I got fired a few months ago from my job. I was so depressed when it happened. It was the only job I had ever known. Well it turns out it was the best thing that has ever happened to me. Now that I am out of that job I have moved on to bigger and better things. I hope that you can take my experience and do the same. You will be in my prayers...and good luck;)

    Can anyone help with this situation?

    Please read this situation and respond to the questions below, with your title (LPN, RN, ect.)...it would really help me out :) .... You enter a patient's room to answer a call light and are very surprised to walk in on a physician who put on the call light because he needed help. The doctor is doing a procedure unknown to you that involves IV solutions and medications. You are a new LPN graduate and have not yet been certified in IV Therapy. There is an LPN student in the room looking frustrated and possibly frightened. The patient appears to be in pain and looks at you as though she hopes to be rescued. The doctor seems frustrated and is tense and raising his voice. He appears to be unable to complete the procedure he has undertaken because both his hands are full, and he needs one more thing done. You wonder if he asked the student to assist with the IV medications and became frustrated when she said she couldn't. All of these observations and considerations race through your mind in seconds. In addition, YOUR blood pressure and pulse rate increase because of the adrenaline release caused by the situation. Then the doctor says to you, "Finally, a nurse! Grad that medication (a syringe filled with "something" sitting on the over bed table) and give it in the second IV port." 1. What do you do, and, more importantly, how do you think it through? 2. What are the considerations that you must factor in to your decision? Ok now...send in the replys!!
