    Brenau University ABSN 2019

    I'm starting the part-time BSN program in January I believe the ABSN program is new and this will be the first class. Sorry, I can't be more help. I have heard both good and bad about Brenau's nursing programs overall, I'm hoping for the best.

    Looking for anyone that may be starting with me or has already started and gone through this program. I'm nervous, anxious and scared at the same time. Crystal

    Case Study Question

    Good evening , I have to do a case study for My pathophysiology class and I have a template for what is required. We have to come up with our own case study and this weeks focus is on nutrition: I chose Pediatric failure to thrive. I'm trying to figure out what all needs to be included in the case scenario part. So far I have age, sex of child chief complaint past medical history. Any ideas of what else should be included in the scenario? Thanks in advance😀 Crystal
  11. I just received my general acceptance letter for Brenau University and will be finishing up the last remaining prerequisites I have left. Would really like to connect with someone planning on doing or is in the nursing program at Brenau. Crystal

    Care Plan Assistance-- Need feedback please

    First and foremost thank you for the response. I have looked over the syllabus and emailed the instructor we are allowed to use risk for nursing diagnosis. The one I was working on last night was [COLOR=#424242]Risk for Peripheral Neurovascular Dysfunction. [/COLOR] [COLOR=#424242]The other diagnosis I was thinking is related to Acute pain and I am currently trying to get further clarification on the scenario patient's mental status which is vague. It would help if I knew if the confusion led to the fall that caused the hip fracture or did the client become confused d/t unfamiliar surroundings. [/COLOR] [COLOR=#424242]Thank you for your feedback as I pressed send and was looking at my original post I was looking at the range or motion exercise as an intervention and was thinking that probably isn't possible during this hospital stay so I scratched that intervention. I guess with the assisting with ADL's I was thinking along the lines of getting the client used to doing as much for themselves as possible which you are right does not directly affect Mobility. I also realize I didn't add the time I would like to see my goals achieved.[/COLOR] [COLOR=#424242]I am currently awaiting my Mosby's Guide to Nursing Diagnosis according to Amazon should arrive sometime today. I also accidently ordered Ackley's Nursing Diagnosis handbook on my kindle which I heard is the extended version of the book I'm currently waiting on.[/COLOR] [COLOR=#424242]Can you recommend a careplan book: This is the one I have my eye on but it older and has a new edition coming out but it isn't out yet and I need one ASAP. [/COLOR][h=1]Nursing Care Plans: Diagnoses, Interventions, and Outcomes, 8e 8th Edition[/h] by Meg Gulanick PhD APRN FAAN (Author), Judith L. Myers RN MSN (Author) Again Thank you for your feedback it is appreciated. Crystal
  13. Oh boy I am excited about being back in school and terrified as well. I have been a LPN since 2009 and only briefly were we introduced to Careplans. Well here we go and today on the first day I get present with a scenario if I even want to call it that. Here is the info I was presented with. I have an Elderly patient 86 y/o fell at home. Patient is confused to place and time scheduled for surgery tomorrow. With the info I have one nursing diagnosis I want to use is: Impaired Mobility related to muscular skeletal impairment AEB fractured hip. Desired outcomes *Regain/maintain mobility at the highest possible level. *Patient demonstrates the use of adaptive devices to increase mobility Interventions: 1. Provide and assist patient with mobility means of wheelchair, walker as soon as possible and instruct safe use of mobility aids. 2. Assist with self care activities. 3. Execute passive or active assistive ROM to all extremities. Rationales: 1. Early mobility reduces complication of bed rest (phlebitis) and promotes healing. Learning the correct way to use aids is important to maintain optimal mobility and patient safety. 2. Improves muscle strength and circulation, enhances patient control in situation, and promotes self-directed wellness. 3. Exercise enhances increased venous return, prevents stiffness, and maintains muscle strength and stamina. Can someone tell me how this looks. Tanks in advance Crystal
  14. Advice is greatly appreciated. I currently work as an LPN in an outpatient mental health clinic. I love my job but as it stands there is no career advancement even if I transfer to the hospital it is affiliated with. Honestly even if there was I would still want to go back for my RN. I live in Georgia and I am having the hardest time finding a school that is flexible enough to allow me to continue to work. I work Monday through Friday 8 to 530, so I would need to take night classes and weekends.but apparently this is not offered at least I haven't run across any programs that offer this type of schedule for full time workers. If so I only have. 2 options quit my job look for a weekend only position or remain in my current position and forego school all together. Neither of these options are going to work for me honestly. Are there any LPN to RN bridge programs in Georgia with flexible or semi flexible scheduling? I have to work or will be homeless. I'm even willing to forgo a bridge program and either do a tradition ASN or BSN program if they are flexible enough. Does anyone have any suggestions, I have heard of Indian states program through the college network but haven't come across any positive reviews from online ratings or people I have spoken with that have attempted this option. Please help I seriously want to go on with nursing.
