    Cleaning patients after bowel movements.

    Well I did receive a C grade in English 102 during my pre nursing tenure. I guess I didn't realize that RNs would let that bother them and ridicule me for it. That is what the college officially called it. Validating. The meaning was that you were officially accepted to begin clinical. And fwiw, I have an Associate' in General Studies.

    Cleaning patients after bowel movements.

    I feel I am being bullied about a question I had asked. If someone doesn't like my username tough! I just had asked what I thought was an innocent question. And saying I am not acting like an adult. I am a 47y/o and had almost validated for RN program clinical. Certain comment are the reason I had never followed through with it. And yet even now I ran into the same issue. HELP!

    Cleaning patients after bowel movements.

    That was my question at the very beginning. I do not understand why people seem to be so skeptical. And accuse me of not being an adult. Maybe the one that had answered me first is the troll.

    For heavens sake, what is PSW101. I came for help with what I thought was a reasonable question. All I wanted to know is how it is done. That's it. Please.

    Cleaning patients after bowel movements.

    I am wondering how you which a difficult task. If a simple question like my is odd how on earth is someone supposed to learn anything in nursing school when working in the real life situation. This is one reason why I spooked about nursing and never went through with my clinicals twenty years ago.

    Well just curious. Especially if you have a guy that is 6'5 and 300 pounds. And why the question with harsh tone?

    Even if a patient has incontinence problems or has to wear a diaper or whatever? I had almost validated to enter clinicals twenty years ago.

    Cleaning patients after bowel movements.

    I hope this is not a stupid or idiot question. But, how do does a nursing staff member clean after a bowel movement using a bedpan, or from an accidental soiling of his or herself? Do you use like super strong and thick paper towels the size of bath towels?

    Why the double standard.

    Will all of this talk of male and female nurses doing any type of care involving the genitalia and chaperoning, how is it with for men doing this type of care with kids? Particularly with older children and teens.

    Questions about nursing school

    Hello all. Can anyone tell me the amount of hours per they would spend studying during clinicals? How many hours do you spend studying in a 2 year program compared to a 4 year program? Also, does nursing school help you become a good critical thinker?

    LPNs in Children's Hospitals?

    Can anyone tell me if they work in a children's hosptal that employs LPNs? I'm seriously considering going to back to nursing school. The problem is I had a hell of time with some of my pre-clinical classes. That is why I'm asking about LPNs because I feel I could never handle the studying involved in becoming an RN.

    Patients in Peds being a guy.

    Thanks Daniel. Unfortunately I do not have the ability to PM anyone yet. Does your hospital generally assign a main RN for the duration that the patient is in PICU? I believe it is referred to as a charge nurse in team nursing.
