1. Need help with a doseage problem?

But yes, if you noticed at the bottom of my post the equation is just V/H x D. Which is literally equivalent to D/H x V. Just the way I learned. Same basic equation, some people just learn differently. And again, all the other stuff is just details. Just in case either the OP, or someone else that might be out there that learns the way I do.
2. Need help with a doseage problem?

Hahaha. Rose Queen. I actually spelled it out in detail so it seems long, but in actuality all I did was volume over what the dose you have on hand, times the desired dose. Super simple. I literally did it in my head. I can definitely see how it looks like it would be long though. Just trying to explain it in detail for someone who may be like me, or learn the way I learn, and need/want to know the exact way to solve something. Before someone explained it to me in detail like this, it just really didn't fully make sense to me. I'm slightly OCD when it comes to certain things like this though, and I need to know the why of things sometimes. Once I learned Med math in detail like this, and realized just how simple it is, I have been able to solve most Med math problems in my head. Although, again, I'm slightly OCD when it comes to certain things so I will still most times wrote them out.

4. Need help with a doseage problem?

Well I got an answer. However, in order for us to help you, we would need you to tell us first which method you use in solving Med math problems; desired over have, etc. Secondly, it would probably be better if you were to explain to us what you did to solve this problem, and then what you got for an answer. That way it would be easier for people on the forum to help you out. If we were to just tell you the answer and/or what we got for an answer that's not really helping anyone out much.
5. New PICU Position

Just wanted to say thank you so much NotReady4PrimeTime for all of the great info. I am ecstatic! I just graduated a couple of months ago and got picked/hired into a phenomenal new grad RN residency versant program! I'm so excited, and a little nervous, but excited! Anyways, thanks again and I too will continue to look around the forums for other great information and tips.
6. A Year to prep before nursing program

I too would most definitely take a patho class. It will help tremendously! Also, like other posters have said, nursing school is no joke, and not like any of the other classes you have ever taken. You better believe that those 9 and 10 units are not going to be easy by any means. They will challenge everything about you. They will challenge the smartest of nursing students. However, again, having a good understanding of your A & P, along with pathophysiology will help give you the solid foundation to help you better grasp the stuff you will be learning in nursing school. Brush up on those three topics specifically, and just enjoy your freedom and relax time. Trust me, there will be much less of that for the few years you are in the program. And trust me when I say, all of those prerequisite classes you've taken are a cake walk to your nursing classes, nursing exams, care plans, and clinicals. Not by any means trying to scare you, I'm just forewarning you as per your post you don't think it "is going to be that difficult". I've had some very smart friends in my cohort fail out of our program. Don't underestimate the time, effort, and level of difficulty it takes to not just get into a program, but complete the nursing program. Truly wish you the best of luck. You are still a little ways away, but if you have any questions I'd be happy to answer to the best of my limited knowledge.
