  1. Question about patient abandonment

    If you see another nurse potentially causing harm to patients (not giving scheduled meds), and a facility allowing it? You're correct.....Remember , you are an mandated reporter to let the BON know about what you have seen. If any thing goes really...
  2. To what degree is the RN responsible for LPN errors

    I suggest going to the nurses bible; " BON Position's Statement" under "Synopsis of Differences in Scope of Practice for Licensed Vocational, Associate, Diploma and Baccalaureate Degree Nurses" for this question and any question about differences of...
  3. Feel Like A Failure

    Yes, competitive. Your grades need to be par. Your grades/classes need to take PRIORITY in your life for the entirety of your nsg curriculum. Make adjustments in your life to make sure that happens if you are able. Otherwise unfortunately, you may no...

  5. Failed NCLEX

    If you are not doing well with self guided study, you must try something different! Especially If it hasn't worked for you in the past. I suggest an instructor led program that lays out an outline for you to keep you on task. I strongly recommend...
  6. LPN Alternatives to patient care

    I too had fell into the same situation as you. I was an LVN of 20+ yrs with a wealth of experience in all types of nursing A-Z. Back when we started nursing, being an LVN really didn't hold us back, and that's how we got all the experience we do h...
  7. Would you call in sick?

    I totally get it about not having the luxury to quit youre job before you find another one. I was a single mom. BUT, i'm looking at this whole situation youre in right now. Ask yourself if you can afford making a serious error due to your constant f...
  8. Nurse Gives Lethal Dose of Vecuronium Instead of Versed

    Black box warning drugs should all have a 'TIME OUT" and 2 RN's verifying. Also, Pyxis should not allow for dispensing of these drugs without those two signatures.
  9. Pts who insult you?

    Go back to your psych book when dealing with these type of patients. Most act out because they feel they have lost control over what happens to them and or no one is listening to them. I know it doesn't make it any easier to take from them, but und...
  10. Already struggling as a cna

    [h=3]Hi Sammiegurl87,[/h] Guess what? Just the fact that you care about all the details and accuracy of what your'e doing? Puts you way ahead of lots of others. Keep up that dedication to everything your'e doing for your patients and YOU WILL S...
  11. NCLEX Resource Review - Kaplan, Hurst, UWorld

    Have you taken their (UWORLD) NCLEX-RN Self-Assessment Test? It will tell you your chances of passing. I think thats a good percentage you have reported on your other tests though. I think mine was about that and I passed NCLEX with 75 questions...
  12. UM, how many reviews per day?

    I have been in case management for 10 yrs and it happened to me. Just remember that employers always lean toward the lower figure of the production expectation when recruiting new hires. Often times 20 reviews mean 35. And if you can do 35 they will ...
  13. Part-time case managers?

    Hello. I have been in case management for 10 years and unfortunately I have never seen Part-time offered. There are UR jobs however, in case managent that are telecommuter jobs were you can work from home! Im not sure where your from, but in Texas y...
  14. Concerns, asked to resign, etc.

    You passed your nsg boards just like the rest of them. Slow? A question to ask yourself maybe is .......why are the other nurses getting things done so fast? Hmmmm. Sometimes unfortunately your longevity on a job is based on irrelevant things assoc...
  15. "He wants his Ativan? Well I'm not giving it to him"

    YOU did all the right things. Remember this situation when you become a nurse as well to keep you on the right track to never become like her. Never lose that caring you now hold for your patients. Because it sure sounds as if the colleague your work...
