  1. Alot has changed in my life since I applied. I want to go to RN school, but I am just night sure that the evening/weekend program is right for me right now with all of the changes. I have until Nov 7th to turn in my final accept/decline letter.
  2. I 'm sure someone will turn it down. I am not exactly sure if I am gonna accept or not. Good luck to you!
  3. Anyone else get their acceptance email today?
  4. I got my acceptance letter!!
  5. Interview went well. Not sure if I will get in, but if not I will keep applying.
  6. I'm glad it went well. I haven't been to the Grenada campus before so I hope I can find the building I am suppose to go to. I am already very nervous and just want it to be over with.
  7. Where did you go to PN school at? I went to Holmes in Goodman. We didn't have to do an interview.
  8. I have mine Tues and I am really nervous. I hate essay questions. Good luck to you!

    Holmes ADN Program Grenada Campus

    I have received my email and have my interview for the night/ weekend program next week. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what kind of narrative questions they ask? Also any examples of interview questions would be much appreciated. Thanks!!

    Giving Morphine

    Thanks BrandonLPN because you understood my situation exactly. There were no grimaces, groans or guarding to indicate pain. All vitals were WNL. I had been on shift for 4 hours before she came on and had been closely monitoring these patients. She walked in the door and stopped at nurses desk and started demanding that the patients receive Morphine without even entering their rooms. These patients have not been receiving Morphine previously, but it is on the cart if needed. I have since talked to the DON and she agreed with me and said she would not have given it either in that situation.

    Giving Morphine

    Thanks for all of the responses. I should mention that all of these res have it ordered PRN for pain/ SOB. They have all been on Hospice for a couple of months and have shown no signs of pain or discomfort. I have been working on this unit for 2 years and have had lots of Hospice patients come and go. I am very comfortable with giving Morphine when needed. I am just not comfortable giving it when NAD is noted and just because she says so without even looking at the res.

    How many patients do you have as an LVN

    I have 25 alzheimers patients with 2 CNAs if I'm lucky but most of the time 1 CNA.

    Giving Morphine

    I guess I just need to vent. I work in a nursing home where I am responsible for 25 residents. Last night my RN supervisor walks through the door and (without looking at my residents) starts asking me when my 5 Hospice residents last had Morphine. I explained that I had not given any because they were all resting quietly. She told me to give them some anyway. I told her I would not because they were not in pain. She asked me how I knew that. I told her they were sleeping and showed no s/s of pain and if they did I would be glad to give it. She insisted that I give it anyway and I refused. I am not going to lie in the chart and say they showed signs of pain or SOB when they didn't. What do ya'll think?
  14. I meant things they like. Sorry for the typo
  15. I work with 25 alzheimers/dementia pts at a nursing home so I know how stressful it can be. I have found that once I have been around them for a few days they recognize me and my voice and are not so intimidated. They still have severe temper outbursts at times, but I talk calmly with them and talk about things they lime and they forget what they were mad about. Patience and understanding are the keys to caring for these patients.
