  3. Becoming a flight nurse

    Not even close to the glam of television. Check out Welcome to FlightWeb You'll find all of your answers from the people who do it every day.
  4. I know the pros, but what are the cons of NICU nursing

  5. IV Drip Rate Help

    No worries. I've never worked with the concentrations you have. And like you I checked our pharmacy and called a friend from two of my previous jobs to double check and I was correct. Maybe it's a regional thing.

    Nope! Two drugs I'm extremely familiar with.
  11. Nursing with schizophrenia.

  12. IV Drip Rate Help

    She said that because Dopamine usually comes pre-mixed from the manufacturer. However, the standard concentrations seem to be 400mg/250ml and 800mg/250ml. The higher concentration is often used when you need to reduce total volume of all fluids being...
  13. Can you get poked by removing an iv catheter?!

    It isn't. You're fine. Listen to those of us who've been doing this for years. Now go study! =)
  14. IV Drip Rate Problem

    It's correct.
  15. IV Drip Rate Help

    I don't think that's it. The question just doesn't make sense to me so I can't answer it. Plus, I'm at work so my time is limited.
