    First Interview as a RN - Question

    Tuttle13, Thanks for the questions!! I have been throwing them around in my head today while doing the endless piles of laundry. So sorry you did not get the job. I am really surprised I was even called given the fact I recently just passed the NCLEX. Tammy

    First Interview as a RN - Question

    I have an interview coming up Thurs. on a Med.-Surg./Monitored Bed unit at the hospital, here in the town I live in. I was wondering if someone could give me an idea of what type of questions I might be asked, other than the basic "why you applied for this position" type. Thanks, Tammy

    Failed nclex 3 times

    I highly suggest using Suzanne's plan. I used her plan along with reading Kaplan's overview of how to narrow down the choices given. I passed on my first attempt in Aug. Tammy

    KolkataMom hit the nail on the head for you!! Thanks Lys!! I actually have had a lot of trouble with nursing care plans in school. I was looking at them the wrong way and making them way too complicated. It finally hit me one day, that the goal it is the outcome that the PATIENT will do. While the interventions are something the NURSE will do to help the patient reach the goal. I know, I know they told me this in class, but for some reason it just was not clicking So with airway clearance, the ultmate goal is for the pt. to not aspirate. So what can I do, while with the pt., to help him/her not do this (interventions)............... I think some instructors make them sound way to complicated. Kem, forget fancy wording, keep it simple, and you will prgress with them.
