3. New nurses in ICU

I too am a new grad. I graduated in Dec. I went straight to the PCICU and Love it!! I was a PCT for 3 years and an EMT. I believe to make it in the ICU right out of school you have to Work hard. I have a great preceptor. There is also a 4 hour a week learning lab that I go to and a Peds Critical course that I will be attending. My orientation is 12 weeks long. Another big plus that I see is that there is a great deal of team work in my unit. No one is ever stranded and there is always a Doc around. Your work environment and preceptor can make or break you in the beginning!
4. Immediate Legislative Action Needed for Nursing Education Funding

5. Flatulence Humor

That was a Great joke. I will definately pass this one one!!!

TTN: The ratio is the best way to do these problems. Also, work lots of them. 2.2lbs = 1.0kg so 78/2.2 = 35.5kg 750mg/5cc = 150 mg/1cc 225 * 35.5kg = 7987.5mg Ratio 7987.5mg 150mg ------ = ----- Xcc 1cc 150x = 7987.5 x = 7987.5/150 x = 53.25cc I put in all the steps. I also took the liberty to change mcg to mg, in case of a typo. If you need to change mg to mcg multiply mg * 1000. Good Luck. !! Remember we've all been there and some of us cant do math. And it may just take some extra practice. With your grades, I's sure you know how to study. Also, see if your instructor will cut you a break and let you know what are the most important conversions to know. If there is only 5 problems, they probably wont put drams or grains on it.
