    how to take blood pressure on the forearm?

    Thank you! I tried to take my blood pressure on my forearm several times. I was unable to hear anything. Did I miss anything?
  2. Hi, I need to take blood pressure on a patient's forearm, but I don't know which direction I should place the cuff and where to put my stethoscope. Thanks

    NCLEX on Monday, Feb 21

    YOU ARE READY!! i graduated in December 2010, too. I watched the content video in the last two weeks of December, attended the Kaplan live class at the beginning of Jan in the morning, read the content book in the afternoon, finished all the Qtrainers (55%- 61%), and all the QBanks (55%-75%). And I took the NCLEX within two weeks after the Kaplan class. One week before the NCLEX, i freaked out. I kept thinking I didnt know enough content. I started doing Saunder's CD, about 150 questions a day. I got about 70-80% depended on the contents. So, I guessed I knew more than I thought I did. That reduced my anxiety. Three days before the exam, I studied the medications again. One day before the exam, I was supposed to hide all my books and relax. However, I just studied whatever I think I am weak at for half day. The rest of the day, I cooked, watched movie, took a bath, I even took an hour and half walk in the evening and talked to friends over the phone as I walked. I didnt go to bed early. I just went to bed at my normal bed time, around 1230 or so. Got up at 0600, had breakfast, and arrived the testing center at 0730. i read some bible before i walked into the testing unit. just read whatever, read it out loud.. it helped to reduce my anxiety. before i stated clicking the computer, i prayed. i felt like i had never been that calm before. i kept telling myself. no matter what, i had studied, and i would pick the BEST answer. once the exam started, i felt like i was just doing the Qbanks. About two hours later, my computer stopped at 75. My heart stopped, too. Once I got home, try the PVT trick, got a good pop up. what a relief!! Two weeks later, I found my name on the BRN website. Yes.. YOU ARE READY.. just remember to BREATH, stay calm, focus on one question at a time, and choose the BEST answer. hope it helps

    interview question

    Hi, I just graduated from nursing school in Dec 2010. Now, I am looking for new grad jobs. One of my classmates went to an interview and got this question. If the Dr. prescribes a medication to your patient, but it is over the safe dosage. What would you do? I would say hold the medication and verify with the Dr. first. Am I on the right track? Or should I talk to the charge nurse first, then the Dr? Any advices may help. Thanks

    Pearsonvue Trick - Does it Work Every Time? Part 2

    I just took the NCLEX today at 8am, and finished at 10am, and walked out of the testing center with tears. I got a pop-up with the PVT.. how accurate is the PVT? I live in California, and the BRN hasnt received all my transcripts yet. Does it mean it will be weeks of waiting? Or they will send me the result even they dont receive all the transcripts? Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
