  1. I'm going to recommend that you speak to your instructor because I feel you are missing the bigger picture. I am also a first year nursing student and very new to this, but I feel you need to focus on understanding the PES model for your nurses diagnosis. Also, from what I skimmed your pt's CC was N/V, with your Dx Aspiration Pneumonia. You acknowledged that they are receiving antibiotic therapy which means your pt has an infection. Your pt may be malnourished and underweight, but these are not the reasons why your pt came to the ER. Focus on the N/V being a clinical manifestation of your Dx. Also, for your goal, our instructor requires it to be SMART, and achievable during our shift, your program may be different.

    CSULB Spring 2017

    I received an email that my financial aid package was revised. Only the Pell grant was added. I'm guessing it's because I have Cal Grant A reserved, so I don't get the other grant. However, I went to the financial aid office and he said that they sent out the reward letters to us too early before they were complete.

    For those of you who accepted the offer already and are receiving financial aid. I got the email from CSULB that my financial aid package was ready and I logged into the MyCSULB portal to view it, however, I noticed that the only thing there are loan opportunities. No Pell grant, cal grant, EOP grant, or any other type of aid. I know I have a low EFC (0000), and I have always been awarded grants at the CC that I am at. Does anyone know if these get added later, or should I get a hold of the Financial aid at CSULB and see why I was only offered loans?

    Congratulations to all of you!! I'm so excited that I also got in! I feel like my world just went upside down. Now to focus on all the things that have to be done and to get prepared for the first meeting. I wish you all well and can't wait to see you guys.

    True, I should be optimistic, however the email stated that the cut-off was 9.15 and anyone who was under was invited as an alternate. My score was 9.12 so I am not going to be overly optimistic, and more realistic. I don't count myself out completely, who knows with the communication exercise, things could have changed. But I really don't want to get my hopes up, I have given up my spots from other colleges because the only college I want to attend is CSULB, one of the reasons is because I live very very close and wouldn't have to deal with driving, and CSULB has one of the best nursing programs in SoCal. I am wishing all of you luck in getting in, I've met so many great and smart people from the ones I met while taking the Teas, to the ones I met while doing the communication exercise. Also all of you on here have very strong scores and I'm optimistic that all or almost all will have no problem getting a spot. :)

    Yeah, I got the email too! I am just happy to be given the opportunity for this exercise. Now I'm hoping to nail this to improve my score! :) Good luck to everyone.

    I wish you the best, and I hope I am wrong....because you are really competitive and have a good shot at getting in I would think.

    Oh, I heard CSULB would only accept based on acceptance of SON and completion of the transfer requirements. If transfer requirements aren't completed even if you are accepted by SON you wont get accepted by CSULB. I could be totally wrong, just what my counselor told me.

    (tired) I'm curious on what others are submitting with the 10 point scale with the new changes to reading... This is the first semester of the change right? It is hard to see how different this semester is from the previous. It would be nice if we had some pool stats for using the reading test instead of math.

    The first page is given the breakdown, but I'm not that good at math but I'll tell you the way I did Science GPA + Cum GPA/2 + 2*(Teas overall in decimal) + 2*(Teas reading score in decimal) = score (out of 10)

    I appreciate the positivity, and I haven't given up complete hope. I think it's that I froze, and I was so nervous I struggled. My stats are Overall score: 9.12 Science GPA: 4.0 GE GPA: 4.0 Teas overall: 83% Teas Reading: 73% I only finished 75% of the reading test before it closed. I realized I had 5 minutes left of reading when I was about half way through. I will keep faith, but at the same time I can't have high expectations.

    I'm not gonna get in cuz my score is worse than everyones lol
  14. I found chem to be one of the easiest classes I've taken. Micro and Anatomy was a lot of memorization, Chem I found seemed easier, the math at the start can get a bit annoying but once you get it I feel it becomes second nature. Organic chem I found to be a lot of fun, but wasn't much of a fan of bio chem.

    Salivary amylase... Is it bad?

    I was reading an article about how teas have an inhibition on salivary and Streptococcal amylase which could lead to stopping slow release fermentation by stopping starch hydrolyse. I found it interesting, and if there was a way to provide the same result on a wider scale perhaps we could further the decrease in tooth decay.

    Salivary amylase... Is it bad?

    I like to ask questions to try and see how others view the topic. Some of the information I learned is a bit different than yours. What I learned is that there is no starch hydrolysis or maltose hydrolysis in the stomach. This is because the salivary amylase enzyme is denatured by the HCL of gastric juices of the stomach. The majority of starch hydrolysis is by pancreatic amylase and maltose hydrolysis is by maltase that are both in pancreatic juice which is secreted into the duodenum. Very little dietary breakdown of starch is actually by salivary amylase. And here my memory gets bad... Dextran is created mainly by S. mutans by sucrose, which wouldn't relate to salivary amylase, however, S. mutans can ferment maltose which would mainly be in the mouth by salivary amylase.
