    Challenging the CNA exam Friday After Next

    I failed my skills on June 8th, but passed my written. I went to Boca, FL to take my exam. I go back on July 15th to retake my skills. I had, ROM right Lower extremity, Dressing a pt with right weak arm, Measure and record weight. I failed the dressing, I dressed the opposite arm first! Im so upset because I got easy skills. I have practicing FOREVER! Since Feb. maybe once or twice a week. My friend just passed hers. she had Blood Pressure which she did 3 times to make sure. Ambulation, Foot Care. She passed both the written and the skills! First timer. Good luck to you.

  3. Is it really necessary to have this done when you go to your first OB GYN check up? To make a long story short, back in 07 I was pregnant and was referred to a doctor at Palms West. He told me it was mandatory to have this procedure done. It was very painful, I told him so, and he kept right on going. When he took the probe out, the entire thing was bloody. I never had bleeding problems up until this point. It took 1 week after that exam that I had continued to bleed and then I was admitted to the hospital only to find that I had miscarried. The doc told me I was 4 months. I just want to know, do you HAVE to do this procedure when you go to your first check up? Because I now think I maybe pregnant again, I REFUSE TO GO AND GET THIS DONE! IF THEY WANT AN ULTRASOUND IT WILL BE MY TUMMY!! thats it. Please tell me your opinions on this matter. Thanks guys. NO MEDICAL ADVICE PLEASE

    Pre-Req Prices PBSC

    Hello, I have just completed my CNA course waiting to take my state exams. I would like to get a ball park on the pre-req prices. Can anyone tell me how much per pre-req? I have a list of the classes to take. I understand the prices might vary, I know I need to buy the books, and they are expensive (even used) Just an estimate. I need to sit down with an adviser at Palm Beach State College. Thanks in advance! Lina

    Painful intercourse.

    Could this be from a heavy yeast infection? I have been to the doc, different ones. I was prego in April 2007 and since then it has gotten worse and it hurts so badly with intercourse. I have been with BF for 5 years and he with me, we are always together he runs his own business and I work with him and we go home together. No cheating here. before I started dating him I was healthy in that area so I dont know what happened. Could this be caused by a horrible yeast infection? I have been douching with warm water and iodine since Monday, I will continue until this coming up Monday. I feel better, and it seems to help but just a small change. At night I pull at myself, its so horrible I wake up and Im wet. UGHHHH
  13. Im currently in a PCA course @ PBSC (Palm Beach State College) and I want to ask anyone who is in the practical nursing program here in FL @ this college, if you can please let me know how much it costs per course for this program. I know it might be different each course but if anyone has the time, and will agree to let me in on the costs I will greatly apperciate it. I know the whole program is about 5,000 13 months to complete. Thanks for your time.

    Which is the first priority physiologic needs or safety?

    OK...

    Which is the first priority physiologic needs or safety?

    Safety is not first because without the physical need of oxygen you cant live- therefore physiological needs must be met first.

    physiologic needs first or safety first?

    1. Physiological Needs- Food, Water, Shelter, Oxygen, Elimination, Sleep, Rest 2. Safety and Security 3. Love and Affection 4. Esteem 5. Self Actualization- Problem solver, one who meets all other needs first, confident, willing to accept criticism, self respect, reaches out to others
