    Actually, Some chick in one of my undergrad classes pulled up a picture of the tampon in lemonade. It was some sort of picmonic I guess. Give me a few hours and I'll write a double blind peer reviewed 15 page article over the benefit of picmonics als...

    why nursing is a mess. three simple facts

    medical journals, not nursing journals. I agree that the PA education is better than many NP schools also. *GASP* I have stated this in previous posts. I still went NP though due to less restrictions on us, which I am all for of course, but still put...

    why nursing is a mess. three simple facts

    I read nursing journals in school. Never will again. I'll stick to epocrates and uptodate. Where they leave out the fluff and to straight to the point. If we followed all of the stuff they put in those nursing journals, I'd admit like 1/2 of a patien...
  6. I have been pondering this question for around 2 years now. I still have been unable to provide myself with a reasonable answer to this question. My stack of books was probably about 1 foot taller in undergraduate. This is an anomoly of the universe....

    Another thing I never understood. NURSING DRUG MANUALS. These things are thicker and have more elaborate over kill explanations that anything I ever used in graduate school and practice. It's just a for show thing. Just as those nursing diagnosis man...

    I do I feel much better. 240 bucks is a lot
  13. If you are expecting an elaborate article, you won't get it here. 1. cost too much to transfer license from another state. About 220 bucks just for me to transfer my RN license since I am moving to another state. Lame. it's not like ive performed any...

    I'm not the doctor!

    after reading the phrase "make sure every action taken by the physician is good for the patient" I have come to the conclusion that the OP has probably been cussed out continually for questioning sound orders. Lol

    I think the big misconception is that all smart people to go medical school and advanced practice, which is also false. The big gap in knowledge comes from the continual pounding of our knowledge base that we take on a daily basis. When forced to use...
