    Pediatric patients...parents are KILLING me!

    I see what you mean. she does use her walker but she cant walk or run as fast as she would if I am holding her. So she knows the walker hold her back to some point and she knows if the nurses walk her its easier for her to play games like tag and hide and seek.

    Working Night Shift as a Student

    The trick in working nights and going to school is taking naps. for example when I worked sunday nights, I got out monday morning at 7am and needed to be at school by nine. I would go home and shower and put my uniform on for school. then I would snooze on my couch for 30 to 45 minutes depending on how fast I showered. then lots of coffee. after i came home and napped for another two hours so I could go back to sleeping nights. Also I never was able to work two nights in a row because of school but I worked around it. yes I got white hairs probably looked tired but I worked out and ate healthy. Remember your sacrifice will pay off !!!

    Pediatric patients...parents are KILLING me!

    I have been working as a peds home health nurse for 3 years. the family is great and the parent work really hard and I totally understand the parent need a break from the special needs child. I started taking care of this child when she was one and a half and couldnt walk. I played games with her as she grew. she started walking with a walker by 2 1/2 and by 3 she could walk but we have to hold her by her hands or shoulders if not she will fall. So basically we carry most of her weight when she walks. Now my problem and annoyance comes when this girl is no longer vent dependent during the day, so everything I do is g tube feeds every four hours and bath time, and occassional suctioning. after that it is go go go all day. when her brothers come home she wants to play tag, hide and seek, or just run around but since she cant do that herself guess who is holding her and breaking her back to walk and run her...yes this nurse. If i dont do it she starts screaming and crying, I can control her more when we are by ourselves but when the parents are home, if they dont say anything, I am basically a robot to the point where I am dripping sweat. I feel stuck because things shouldnt be this way but they are a great family. Oh and night shift is worse because now she is four years old and if we are in summer vacation and her brother are out of school they are up and going until 12am or 1am. What the heck people!!
  7. Hello I got accepted into the entry level BSN at FNU hialeah campus. I wanted to know if anyone has been in the program. any info would be appreciated. I am a LPN
  8. of course its a license, you have to do a state board test from the nursing department in order to be a CNA. with that said I dont know if they will reject your application, you should just call and ask.

    can you let me know what was your GPA and what grades you had in the science classes. my GPA is 2.8 and I got in science 3B and 1C and I am not sure if that will be good enough or if i should retake some classes.

    Thank you so much! by the way the pearson vue pop up trick works great. and remember that 24 hours later you guys can check the board of nursing and it will say if you passed or failed even before pearson vue does.

    Should i reschedule it or take it.? PLEASE HELP

    Read my post if you have a chance on how i studied for nclex. but just to be quick, I felt like i had soo much left to study, but when you get that test in front of you, its like everything you studied for was not in the test. Im not saying it was super hard, it is challenging but if you were a good student in school and you should just study major body systems and reinforce what you already know like diabetes, tube patients, renal, cardio, and procedures like liver biopsy. dont take too much time over pharmacology because it is such a small percentage of the test that you should just go over the meds you know for example nsaids effect can be gi bleeding. if you have any question let me know.

    Passed Nclex PN 4/8/2013

    I passed the Nclex PN with 85 questions the first time!!! I used the saunders red book for content. so this is what i did, first i took the 75 question test saunder has online to see what your week points are, so my week points were maternity and pediatrics. I spent two weeks studying that, then I spen three weeks studying the other systems like cardio, renal, oncology. at the same time i wrote down lab values in index card to memorize. I didnt finish the book because i didnt have time, so five days before i started to answer kaplan questions that you can google. in total i think i was only able to answer about 700 practice questions. I felt horrible because I was getting everything wrong but reading rationales. so two days before my test i just gave up on studying and believe it or not everything i had studied that month started to sink in those two days. when you get to the test just take you time to relax, and dont rush at the beginning of the test untill you feel calm. the first hour of the test i was a nervous wreck and only answered 20 questions. But i told myself or you know it or you dont, if you fail you have another chance so just answer like you are just studying for this test. it actually worked because i Passed with 85 questions. Good luck! Im not going to tell you to believe in yourself because I really didnt but i believed god would help me choose the best answers and he did.
