  1. Normal physiology of...

    Looking for normal anatomy/physiology for a patient with migraines. In our clinical paperwork we have to discuss the abnormal for the pt's condition and what that part of the body functions like normally. For the abnormal I have: A benign recurring h...
  2. Nursing Care Plan (Post-op)Hemicolectomy

    I'm with you DolceVita. You won't get by in real life with people doing your work for you. I rarely consult allnurses unless I've exhausted my own resources at home and my brain. Which is what lead me to this post -- trying to find my one last diagno...

    Basically I have to write a short blip about how dementia effects the brain and how then a short blip about how the brain functions normally
  4. Nursing student in need

    This is the student section Silverdragon...this is the nursing student assistance section.
  5. Pathophysiology of Dementia!! Help!

    Ok, my pt this week at clinicals was diagnosed with 'altered mental status' for a number of reasons (bipolar, dementia, possible schizophrenia etc) My instructor suggested I go with dementia for my overall pathophysiology for my paperwork. She told m...
  6. What are you carrying all your books in?

    Unless the instructor specifically asks us to bring a book to class I don't bring them. All my small chunky books (drug guide, dictionary, lab/diagnostic) stay home. At most I bring my binder, medsurg book and medsurg study guide in a fabric over the...
  7. How to approach the beginning of shift?

    I agree! While it is important to get vitals and meet patients, you never want to go into a room not even know anything about your patient. Our hospital is doing away with Kardexs, so I just take a quick glance over their meds and the h&p to see ...
  8. Low BUN and Creatinine....WHY??

    Okay I'm doing my clinical paperwork from this week and I am stuck on one little part...my pt has acute pancreatitis. We were resting her pancreas, started NPO on NGT, moved to clear liquid then was switched to 1800 cal ADA diet Wednesday at lunch. S...
  9. 1/2 nursing class cut, WHY??

    From what I understand, that is pretty normal lol. We were told the same thing at orientation for my class -- usually start out with 30 and graduate with half or less. We lost 4-5 people already, we started in April. One person just goofed off and di...
  10. Which are the Most Supportive BSN RN Programs in GA

    In my experience, people are not booted out left and right for no reason. There are stipulations and rules set by not only the schools but the state board of each state that a person must maintain a certain GPA in each class they take and can only mi...
  11. Nursing Care Plan books

    Can anyone suggest a good nursing care plan book? Were going into our second round of clinicals and will be doing care plans every week for a grade. I've done a few care plans for practice in class and have done OK on them but didn't really feel like...
  12. Community College? You must be stupid.

    I have to laugh when people think that community/vocational/trade colleges have it easier. I am going to a technical college for my LPN and I have to say, it is by far the most challenging experience I've ever had in school. The pace is much quicker ...
  13. Yes I would say speak to a lawyer and also talk to your state's board of nursing education.
  14. Tattoo cover up

    I have Dermablend and I have used it to cover a tattoo on my back for my wedding. I wouldn't use that at the hospital because, as you said, some clients may be allergic to some of the ingredients. Being that my tattoo is on my wrist it will be in clo...
  15. Tattoo cover up

    Hello! I just started my clinical rotation for school last week and it's been really really great! I am in the LPN program at my school and we've just been doing bed baths and changing linens and charting but it's been awesome getting out of the clas...
