    First Job Interview ever.....

    Hello I'm hoping for some advice! I just got out of nursing school in May and FINALLY have my first job interview on Thursday....unfortunately for me, I haven't had a job since I was like 19 which was 10 years ago and I'm super nervous about the interview :uhoh21: I'm hoping that I can get some tips and pointers to help ease my fears alittle bit! Anything would be helpful!

    Thryoid storm question..........

    Thank you. I have Pearson 2010 and 2009, both of them do have it under cautious use but just the word, it doesn't tell me why so I figured that it couldn't be that. Thank you that helps:)

    Thryoid storm question..........

    Thank you for the reply but believe me, I've been in 3 of my different drug books and maybe I'm just not seeing it but I do not see any reason. They all would be ordered with suspecting and trying to prevent thyroid storm.......
  5. i know that everyone dreads case studies but i am hoping that i can find some help. i have a case study that i am working on and i've been able to answer to every question, pretty well, but i have absolutely no idea on this question. the overview is that the patient is going into thyroid storm. here is the scenario k.b is an 80 year old man admitted to the hospital following a 5 day "flu" with complaints of dyspnea, palpitations, chest pain, insomnia, and fatigue. his pmh includes hf, htn, requiring anti hypertensive meds that he states he has not been taking on reg. basis. k.b was diagnosed with graves disease 6 months ago and placed on methimazole 15mg/day po. height 5 8 weight 130 appears anxious and restless, loud heart sounds, vs 150/90 104 ireg. 20, 100.2f 1+ pitting edema on lower extremities bilateral, diminished breath sounds with fine crackles. lab findings---- hgb 11.8 hct 36% esr 48 na 141 k+ 4.7 bun 33 creatinine 1.9 t4 14 t3 230. after morning rounds, the physician leaves the following orders- propranolol inderal 20mg po q6h, dexamethasone decadron 10mg iv q6h, verapamil calan sr 120mg/day po, diet as tolerated, stat ecg, up ad lib. the question that i can not figure out is: which of these orders would you question and why? i hope that someone will be able to help me because i have looked everywhere and i can not figure out why you would question any of these orders.......

    Well that is what it says for me too. I'm freaking out cause I walked out literally feeling like crap. I still can't believe that I passed....I guess I will just have to wait a few days, but I got a small sense of comfort, hopefully I'm not the first one for it to be wrong on...that's my luck tho!

    Help with presentation! CHF!!

    Thanks! Yeah I was hoping that someone who did the whole school nursing thing would have some teaching stratigies (sp) )
  15. Hello! I am hoping that someone reads this and can help me! I have a presentation that is due in April and my topic is cardiac, I chose to center it around congestive heart failure. It is worth 20% of my grade so it is really important. It has to be 40 minutes long! My instructor said she wants it to be interactive, she does not want us going up there and talking for the whole time. I am so lost because for one I get so so nervous in front of people and for two which is why i am on here, is that I am so not creative in any way! So if I could get all the help I can would be so great!!!! I figured I'd do a 5 minute powerpoint presentation in the beginning and a quiz at the end, but the middle is totally blank!! I want to find some creative ways to engage the audience and have it really be creative and fun and help them learn about CHF too. Please any suggestions!!! Games, case studies...etc i don't know!!! Maybe you've seen in class or are a professor and taught in class and really know some neat ways for me to do this. Anything will help!! thanks in advance!!
