  1. Hello, I have been a nurse for 20 years. I have experience in NICU, MICU, CICU, flight nurse, ER, and more recently as a nurse supervisor. I spent my last 8 years working in the USA in ICU as a RN. I did my BSN (the equivalent) in France and I am int...
  2. Hello, I am a french nurse. I have 6 years of experience btw ICU, ER, PHRN, NICU and flight nursing but I haven't worked as a RN since 2003 (I'm currently doing a refresher course). I just passed the NCLEX, have PA license and my ACLS. I would like t...
  3. What does ii mean?

    but why does it say 325mg? I tought it should be either grain or mg but not both. What does that prescription exactly mean? Here is the full first part of the question: "The nurse on the medical unit administers acetaminophen (Tylenol) with codeine #...
  4. What does ii mean?

    On one of my practice test question for the NCLEX I read: "The physician ordered acetaminophen (Tylenol) 325 mg tab ii PO" What does ii mean? I thought it means "grain" from a previous question but I guess not. As a foreign nurse I never saw that bef...
  5. oops, sorry I read that after I already answered. I will simply expect that they will tell me where and how to round the results as a couple people mentioned.
  6. I'm sorry but this doesn't make sense. It doesn't matter if the medicine will be given PO or IV, or any other routes because you will end up drawing the medicine with basically the same syringe to get the right amount. You may use a 5ml-syringe for o...
  7. thank you very much, now I feel better!
  8. I've been told that you round to the nearest 100th for result 1ml which makes sense. But I don't understand why it would be different in these 2 examples. It is very frustrating because I always get the dosage calculation right, so yes it would be a...
  9. I will sit for the NCLEX in 3 days. I am practicing NCLEX questions with the Kaplan Qbank. I had no problem with dosage calculation until I came up with these two questions: First I came up with this question: The nurse receives an order to administe...
  10. Now I just got this question: The nurse cares for a client receiving potassium chloride 25 mEq IV piggyback. The potassium chloride is labeled 10 ml = 40 mEq. Record the number of milliliters of potassium chloride that the nurse should add to the I...
  11. oh OK it makes sense. thanks a lot.
  12. Ok I have a problem here. I will sit for the NCLEX in 3 days. I am practicing NCLEX questions with the Kaplan Qbank. I had no problem with dosage calculation until I came up with these two questions: First I came up with this question: The nurse rece...
  13. Pearsonvue "Trick". Is this TRUE? Does it Work Every Time?

    PhillysBelladonna, are you OK? Are you sure you pick the right job? I don't know if you realize but you will face situations much more stressful at work...
  14. ACLS vs PALS vs CCRN etc.

    Hi, I am a foreign nurse, I recently passed the CGFNS and I will sit for the NCLEX in 9 days. I know I should focus on that right now but I can't help to think about the next step. I was an ICU/CCU RN in France and I would like to work in adult ICU h...
  15. I was wondering if a calculator is provided during the CGFNS exam? Does anyone know?
