  1. It is a lack of practice. Seriously....this is probably the #1 mistake that people make in math...they rush through their homework, don't do enough of it, etc. I am not a strong math student, however, I have never seen math that I cannot eventually m...
  2. We had one that was charged with a violent crime and she wasn't allowed to come back to clinical (she could attend class) until it was resolved. She was ultimately convicted, dropped out of the program and will probably never be a nurse...b/c she had...
  3. Lab Values on NCLEX

    If you get a copy of an NCLEX study guide, they should be in there. Don't obsess with minute measurements of start and end values...these will always vary slightly by text. We were told that on the NCLEX the value will be VERY out of range...not bord...
  4. I would really like to see your source if I am an RN that assists at a scene and Mr. Ego Paramedic can't seen to get it in his thick skull that a patient is having a possible MI and needs O2 NOW because he is fiddling with non-essential things (Which...
  5. Biopsy and Ablation the week before school starts???

    I had this same procedure done under general anesthesia and I was shocked at how fast the recovery was. I never even took a Tylenol.
  6. yes, but you have to read the fine print. to borrow an example from minnesota: "a person at the scene of an emergency who knows that another person is exposed to or has suffered grave physical harm shall, to the extent that the person can do so wit...
  7. Maybe to you and in your opinion...but not in mine. There is so much myth going around on this message board about the legalities of people that respond first on the scene, I could write a book if I drew them all out.
  8. Please go back and read the post I responded to....that is important. When somene says that they "would not reveal" that they were an RN if responding to an emergency situation because they think it would set them up somehow....how can RN's claim to ...
  9. It makes no difference if you hand off someone and identify yourself as an RN. This is why... An RN has a scope of practice and you are only responsibile for legally performing to your highest level of training...so that would differ in NO WAY from a...
  10. Don't confuse RENDERING aid with CALLING for aid. No state wants someone with zero training to try to pull someone from a crashed car only to find out that had they been stablized properly, that their broken back probably wouldn't have severed their ...
  11. In my state, it is MY decision, whether or not to become involved if I am not at work. When I touch a victim, I am legally required to perform "to my highest level of training" and you are legally responsible if you do anything that is OUTSIDE of you...
  12. Posting your Exam Grades on Facebook

    Why are you concerned about what someone else posts on their OWN Facebook account? Would you want someone monitoring the information you post on yours? Sounds like the only people that find it irritating are probably jealous.
  13. HIPPA question

    Court order overrules HIPAA...all day long. Think about it....a biological mother loses custody of her child due to a COURT ORDER...does that STILL entitle her to medical information? Absolutely not. Follow the court order and tell her she needs to c...
  14. pt. called in narcotics under MY name...now what

    But seriously folks...is this situation even that unusual that the OP described? I would think that pharmacies would very savvy at picking up these fake call-ins and to me, it wouldn't take but rattling off a little pharmaceutical jargon before you c...
  15. has anyone used a "clicker" device for tests?
