  1. I can't use Risk for Infection because it is too soon. It has to be while in PACU. She had an epidural and was in NO pain. Lower transverse abdominal incision with scant bleeding on the peripad, however, she did lose 650ml of blood during surgery. What would you guys pick as your #1 Dx? My instructor is very anal about these caremaps and I want it to be good. Thanks for looking. Cindi

    How many got only 75 questions?

    I took the NCLEX yesterday morning and I was done in an hour and only got 75 questions. When it shut off, my heart sank and I felt sick. I had no dosage cal. questions(which I'm good at), lots of pharm.(which I suck at), and a ton of priority questions. I hate this waiting and it's only been one day.

    IV Push Med Dilution

    Sorry if this is a dumb question but I have trouble with this. Does anyone know a good site for recommended med diultion and infusion rate chart for commonly used meds in the NICU?

    Any Fall 07 MGCCC - JD students?

    I graduated from JD in May 2007. It is a tough program to go through but it's worth it because it prepares you better. We had some people that couldn't get past level II so they dropped and started going to USM. So I think it's as good or even better than other nursing programs on the coast. You just have to be dedicated to it and study even when you don't want to. Also, get in a study group because they will make you study even when you don't want to. Good luck.

    Tested today 5-31-07

    MissKitty, I'm going through the same thing. I took the test on Tuesday and still there is no answer. Mississippi doesn't do the quick results. I'm going out of my mind. I too had only 75 questions. So if I failed, I bombed it. Do they know what they are doing to us? This isn't looking good.

    Anyone hear test in Mississippi?

    How long did it take to find out if you passed? Sorry for the spelling. My mind is not here with me, it's worrying if I passed or not.

    When should I start worrying?

    Mississippi doesn't offer the quick results, so I'm sitting here stirring. I've heard that NCLEX results are put in on Thursday at midnight for the previous week. Has anyone else heard this rumor? How many days after I take the NCLEX and there is no liscense number on the MS board of nursing website should I start freaking out and consider that I didn't make it?:uhoh21:

    How to find out if you passed or not

    I'm in Mississippi and I've been told by other nurses that you can go to the board of nursing website and do a nurse inguiry. Type in your last 4 of your SSN and last name and if a number pops up that is your liscense # and you passed. That's what I've been doing.

    Do you think I passed?

    I just took my NCLEX yesterday morning and it shut off at 75 qestions. I felt sick to my stomach. I also live in MIssissippi and have been told that you can go to the Mississippi Board of Nursing website, then go to nurse inquiry and type in your last four digits of your SSN and last name and if a number (your liscense #)pops up then you passed. Also I've been told they put them in on Thursday at midnight. Oh course, all these are all rumors. But hey, give them a try. I'm doing it myself.

    Had an interview with NICU...

    I will be graduating in about 2 weeks and interviewed for the intern program. The internship is night shift and I have never worked at night and I don't know how I will react to the change. I know that I'm new and should not be so picky and take what I can get but I really don't want nights. How did some of you adjust to nights? How do you like it? Please give me some advice. Thanks.

    Will graduate in May 2007...

    and I've heard different opinions from other nurses. Please tell me what you guys think. Like I said, I will graduate in May 2007 (if the Lord wills it) and have two children ages 7 and 9. I would like to be there for them and used to be interested in becoming a teacher. So I have been toying with the idea of becoming a school nurse. I've heard you should have at least 5 years of previous training (ER, peds, etc.) I've heard too that they just throw you in there and you better know your stuff because you are totally resonsible. I still have worries that I don't know what I'm doing (granted I have one more year left of school) but what if I still feel like this when I graduate? Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!
  24. I hope to be starting in the fall. Waiting for my letter.
