  1. Pre op Question

    Wondering for those nurses working in peds pre op, how old do you start your IVs on kids? Some facilities depending on age use mask induction then start an IV while child asleep. Does your hospital have a policy?
  2. Is seeing a pt in Preop really a must for OR nurses??

    As a pre op nurse it’s very important for the OR nurse to do their part before OR. In my hospital we have to go over name DOB, MRN and consents and other forms. This also makes the patient feel confident we are double Checking everything. Mistakes h...
  3. Peds pre op nurses! Question

    I was wondering at your hospital for pre op / outpatient nurses. How old do you start IVs on a kid. Some hospitals depending on age do mask induction first then start an IV . Just curious what other children hospitals do and is it a policy at your fa...

  9. I just finished my first semester and you really want to try hard to study and not fail. Don't even let it be an option for you. I'm in a 2 year program, 4 semesters that are 18 weeks and they break it in half. The first 9 weeks were not so bad but t...
  10. When you say Iguana book you are reffering to Iggy right?
  11. Thanks for all the suggestions. I've tried the study guide for Iggy and it did have a lot of questions, I just wished they had the rationales for the answers. Has anyone tried the study guide Saunders comprehensive review for the nclex rn exam by Li...
  12. Hi all, I'm starting 2nd semester in fall (ADN 2 year program = 4 semesters long) and our first rotation is med-surg. I was looking for any useful critical thinking study guide books that you have used. Our main med-surg book is by Donna D. Ignatavic...
