    Calculation help..

    That is correct. I convert the gr to mg. So I say there is 60mg/1gr so there are Xmg/.17gr (6/1=.166). That gives you 10 mg. Then do D/H*V. So 5/10*1=.5. Hope that helped. I am so bad at math but for some reason calculation clicked with me. Good Luck!

    Blood transfusions??? just say no...

    We have addressed this in school. Just get someone else to do it for you. It doesn't make you a bad nurse or pushing beliefs....it makes you faithful to your beliefs and I totally respect that!

    Immunizations & nursing school

    One thing I've learned in NS is that it's not about you, It's about the patient. As harsh as it may sound...it is true.
  8. I was looking into this and my instructor said they can cut off blood supply if you use the socks. I don't like hose. What to do?
  9. I have read other reviews that state that EC will try to purposely fail you during your clinical test. I am super interested in the program...but it is a lot of money. I just need to make sure it is worth the expense.

    Not a lot of opportunities for LPN's?

    I am doing clinicals at a LTC facility..and the nurses here say they LOVE their jobs and would not want to be anywhere else. I think it just depends on you!

    Weatherford College LVN

    Almost finished with my first semester in the WC LVN program! Whew!! It is going by so fast. mommap...I have had several RN instructors tell me that LVN to RN is the way to go. Supposedly LVNs learn more bedside nursing and RNs learn a lot of theory based care. It is also easier to get into a transition program than straight RN. My ultimate goal is RN as well. Good luck!
