    Bair Hugger

    We use under and over body bair hugger's together for our long neuro cases, Endoscopic Endonasal Approach and Crani for Tumors. It keeps our patients temp up much better than just having one over them. jwk- ours have channels that are outside the patient that allows are flow to circulate. So there is a purpose.

    Clipping hair

    I am on the neuro team, we clipper hair in the OR after intubation and positioning while we prep. I know what AORN says but who wants to be awake when we shave a good portion of your hair for a craniotomy for tumor case, the pt is already going through enough emotionally.

    Registering for NCLEX

    Safest way is to call the BON and ask about what you are concerned about.

    Kaplan Practice Question! Need Help

    I would think of it like Kaplan's don't pass the buck situations for number 2. Number 3 works because it allows you to still administer the medication on time and safely.

    To scared to check

    Took it yesterday also. Was nervous to check the trick but after two hours I ended up checking since I didn't want to feel like garbage all day. Got the good pop up and my name was posted on the BON this morning in PA. Good Luck!!

    Took the test at 8am yesterday morning 75questions, PVT showed good pop up when i checked. PA BON posted license this morning.
  12. What they have on the site is the most up to date form. If the charge was expunged it should not show on your background check. A friend of mine was in the same situation, he had a family member that was an officer verify and nothing showed up. You can always call the BON to verify.

    Accelerated KSU Spring '10

    I just got in for the summer so I start in less than a month. Advise for you is to knock out as many of the courses you can complete prior to the program. It will lessen your courseload considerably and also help out alot in your application. I know they changed some things in there application like a timed essay.
