    Are colors consistant across all brands of scrubs?

    Emmy, thanks for the reply. It's been a few weeks and I've seen exactly what you're talking about with the gap between the top and the bottom when you bend over or squat (bare skin). Some of the girls where I work do the same as you and it looks great! They even wear neon green or hot pink and it looks pretty cool. So I've come around on the long-sleeve t shirt and am not tucking mine in, either. So far, I've only worn my collection of white long-sleeve tees but I have a black one for winter and will get a few other colors.

    Are colors consistant across all brands of scrubs?

    I know this is an old thread, but I've got a new position and a specific color I must wear (caribbean blue). I am having the same problem with matching that specific color between different brands. I've got tops that lean towards tealish-blue and pants that are so dark they are dark teal or almost forest green. But I wondered about the suggestion above. Do people wear a layered top that hangs out of (below) their scrub top? I wouldn't have even considered that; it seems like a sloppy look. Whenever I wear a long-sleeved t-shirt, I tuck it into my scrub pants. Do people wear an undershirt or camisole hanging out?

    How does administering PRN medications work?

    The duration between 1:35 and 3:45 is 2 hours and 10 minutes. What are the extra 10 minutes for? Do you have to wait an extra 10 minutes? (I guess with PRN meds, the 30 min before to 30 min after don't apply either, right, since it is not a scheduled med. ??)

    Fish Scales

    Template usage is inconsistent. Below are links to variations I have found. Also attached below is a PDF file that includes fishbone templates/grids for labs. You should pick one you like and use it consistently for your own use. If there is a standard at your place of employment, you should (obviously) conform.

    Fish Scales

    Actually, the grid or template is called a fish bone (not a fish scale). That is because the BMP (basic metabolic panel) grid looks like a fish bone: Na+|Cl-|BUN ---|---|---- K+ |CO2|Creat Notice how the template looks like a fish bone skeleton: --|--|--

    Is the iClicker needed for only Term I? Or will it be used in Terms II, III or IV?

    I have never used my computer on campus before. Is wireless available everywhere on North Campus like outside and in the classrooms? Or only in certain areas like the library or computer lab?

    This may not apply to you, but I'm mentioning it in case it would be helpful. There is another forum on this site called "Nursing Licensure With A Criminal History" You may want to look through the threads or post your same question there: https://allnurses.com/nursing-licensure-criminal/ Good luck to you - I hope that it will all work out for you with a happy ending.

    Doesn't the instructor display the PowerPoint? I never had to have my own internet access during the prereqs. The instructors displayed the presentation on the classroom screen. This must be something new?

    Does anyone know if it is possible to transfer from Days to Nights/Weekends at any time during the program? Possibly between Terms? (I would assume that it would be subject to space available.)

    Has anyone purchased the RN Student Skills Kit from Stat-Line Industries? Would anyone mind posting a detailed list of exactly what is in the kit? I have someone who has offered to give me some of the items in the kit if I can give them a list of exactly what is in it. I am so relieved because money is so short. However, I am embarrassed to go to the store just to look at the kit and then not buy it. I would be really grateful if someone could post a list of the exact contents (or take a photo!). NursRatchet, you are so good at these things, do you have your kit yet? Can you help?

    FSCJ Students, Which blood pressure cuff (sphygmomanometer) did you purchase? Where did you buy it? Prior and current students, which one do you recommend? Thanks!

    FSCJ Students - Which BP Cuff?

    If a cheap one will suffice, I don't want to buy it at the bookstore or a uniform store where the chances are good that I will pay top dollar. Which blood pressure cuff did you purchase? Where did you buy it? Prior and current students, which low-cost cuff do you recommend? Thanks!
