  1. i graduated in dec. '03, so don't worry! did the lpn to bsn bridge. all tital about 3 years.....2 years part time (i do have a mortgage!), and the last 2 semesters full time; wasn't in too much of a rush. 'bird'
  2. sxu is a private college, and the way they have things set up (along with their reputation), they give you a better chance of getting into core classes faster. oh, yeah; i may have put off starting clinicals a semester, but that is a whooole story unto itself. 'that bird'
  3. if you have any pre-req's to finish up, you can finish them at sxu. warning...they want biochem! i tried to get outta it, had organic, etc. no luck. you are admitted to the core classes once you've finished the required classes. there are some classes that are concurrent, but you shouldn't have any problems.

    Welcome to the Missouri State Forum!

    I would personally get my license in Illinois, and then the MO one IF you take Boards before the move. Have you considered having licensure in both states? Suebird :)

  11. Don't discount the Full Moon....I mean it! I swear our 'pleasantly confused' patients go gung-ho about then. And yes, some Full Moons are worse than others. The aides are good resources. Good idea!

    How do you become a Moderator for this site??

    Guess that automatically removes most of us, eh? Hehe.

    to give pain meds or not to give meds?

    One resident stands out in particular. Had end stage liver failure, d/t using Tylenol secondary to a back injury. Lord, she was in pain, and we had to really watch it cuz of the disease progression. I will never forget the whole situation.

    Restraints

    Any Psych Meds (Ativan, Haldol, etc.) require consent forms. Physical restraints such as wrist or vest restraints are NOT used. We do have Lap Buddies, though. Side rails are used for help in repositioning.

    to give pain meds or not to give meds?

    OK..was half asleep here.....sorry! Was trying to remember the max dosage and ditzed. I have so many rezzies who try to get 500 mg of ES Tylenol every 4 hours, PLUS other Tylenol based products, we devised a plan incorporating said products. So far.....seems to be working. That is where the 2400 comes from. :)
