  1. lets say if the patient's bp is 180/101 is it ok to give him or her water to drink, it may sound dumb but i know if you are having hypotension you want to drink more water so is it opposite for hypertension ... thanks.

    Nursing Superstitions?

    Yes I hate full moons too.this one is very true. And every time we call 51/50 code on a patient for hitting other patient and when the emt comes to get the patient that patient is like the sweetest and quietest patient in whole facility and they ll look at us like we lied...LOL And don't you just hate it when you are almost done with your shift and looking at the clock with a smile the next second you ll hear one of your resident had a fall or some other kind of emergency.....

    Did all you Nurses out there feel this way?

    thats normal, and you learn by experience. doesnt matter how you good you are in school but when you are on the floor by yourself you will not remember everything in the books and you have to find your own techniques sometimes.but more you ll work the more experience you will get and more comfortable you will feel.those nurses you have seen must ve been through the same feelings.I had that too. You ll be fine. good luck.
  6. i know we recieve license after we pass nclexpn but is that it. if someone asks for what degree you recieved is that what you would answer?

    Is Jevity considered "medicine"?

    Talk to the DON there and they can get an order from the doctor and train you , but i m sure they are going to make you sign some papers, after all she is your mom and they cant refuse you.

  15. I am a new L.V.N, just started working, ..so can i get some advice on some situations that are very common in the long term care facility which you think is good to know about and if some thing like that happens what i should do instead of freaking out...because i am going to start working by myself and they put me on call and the first time i am gona be working is going to be at night and i m going to be one and only licensed nurse in the facility at that time so if i have a question i cant really ask anyone at that time...so please tell me some of your stories or situations that you were in and what did you do????anything pleaseeeee......godd bless!!!!
