  1. I took the ATI in september and got a 93 to pass NCLEX, you then have the option to take the virtual ATI, which in my opinion is very time consuming and a pain in the butt. I quit using the virtual Ati on Sept. 30, after feeling completely stupid. I have since got my ATT and have pick wednesday October 14 to test yes it is tomorrow. I pick this date a week ago, just because I just want it over with. I have studied using an old PN book with CD, Because the book they gave is not compatible with windows vista. I have used my ATI prodictor scores and marked the ideas that I need to study in the Ati books and have watch some of the DVD tht came with ATI. I have worked on my calculations using math book. I feel anxiety but I am still feeling good about it. I think I had a been time studying with the ATI books, tests and DVDs. If I had questions I called an instructor or google. ABGs a great site is ehow.com it explains compensate and uncompensated alot better then my instructor. I was also assigned a mediator and she sent me packets out of topics I needed to study. I will let you guys know if I passed. By the way I went to Kaplan in Omaha, the program is awesome, kind of expensive. Worth the time and energy. Planning on going into a fast track program form my BSN.

  2. I wear Nike shox that are all leather through out my clinical which ended in September. They have alot of support and and comfortable and easy to clean. I brought mine for about $80 at footlocker last october. I actually have several pairs of shox in different colors love each one. I got a suggestion to use scetchers, i was not too crazy about the fit and I thought that they were a heavy shoe. I am not crazy about the crocs either because they have no support, its like wearing a slipper to work. Plus if you have holes in them stuff gets in them or if you dont have holes then your feet sweat making it uncomfortable. I am sorry but after a while crocs just have a smell to them even if you wash them several times. I think that you basically have to have perfect posture and skinny to be comfortable in crocs for long periods of time. I will stick to my nike shox, yes they are expensive, but easy to clean.

    I would brush up on Math, medication math, also more complex equations as in algrebra. I would also do a human biology or a pre a and p, mircobiology is really advanced I wouldn't take that until you are through a&p. I would take a computer class just to brush up on some computer skills, could help you later on when researching. Also a human growth or psychology class to further you knowledge in how people work. Hope that it helps you. I am currently in a 50 week program where we have several older(not implying anything) students. I have 4 kids at home and 3 are under age of 3. So, it is really hard at times. So, keep up and don't fall behind. Good Luck!!!

  4. I am almost finished with school, I can give you suggestion from my experiences in clinical.

    An easy one would be risk for infection r/t inadequate primary defenses(e.g. decreased cilary action)

    The deficient fluid volume is a good one. I know that are school is doing care mapping, which is based off of your patho. Is the client taking any of the following cortisone, thiazides and "loop" diuretics

    Asked a friend and got ineffective airway clearance r/t the presence of tracheobronchial secretions secondary to infection and impaired gas exchange r/t altered oxygen supply and alveolar- capillary membrane changes secondary to inflammatory process in the lungs. I hope that it helps from one student to the next. Good luck.

  5. I have a patient that has hydrocephalus with a ventriculoperitneal shunt. We are doing care plan mapping in our clinical groups. does any know of any more medications or other research available for this topic. I have been to the FDA.gov and google. I want to know if anyone has come across anything. Thank you
