    Excited but nervous... help

    Thank you so much!!! I just ordered me a dosage book. I'm just nervous it's been so long since I've been in school I just don't want to be behind. So I'm going to relax and start with dosages because that's definitely important.

    Dosage question help

    I never got a clear answer on if the worksheet wording is incorrect but I got 11.4 or 5.7 if I divide by 2.

    Dosage question help

    What I'm thinking if this makes any sense is if the medication was ordered at 1p.m hen it would be once a day. That's the only thing I can think of. So I guess I can see how it makes a little sense. But if it said BID I would definitely know to divide by 2. I'm also not sure how Wuzzie got 143?

    Dosage question help

    1. I did 60/45x 100 to get 133. 2. I did the 60/40x100 to get 150. 3. It just says 5mg/day every 12hrs. I usually would divide by two but it says it's incorrect. There's nothing that says how to work the problem just the answer. So I would 25 divide 2.2 = 11.36 multiply by 5 divide by 25mg then multiply by 5 to get 11.36 or 11.4 which is what the worksheet says is correct.

    Dosage question help

    So I'm trying to brush up on my math skills and I just have a few questions. 1. Ampicillin 1.5g in 100ml 0.9% ns over 45 mins. What is ml/hr. I got 133ml/hr the worksheet answer has 125ml/hr. 2. Zosyn 2g in 100ml DW5 over 40 min. What is the ml per hr. I got 150ml/hr the answer says 143. 3. They doc orders phenobarbital 5mg/day every 12hrs. The pt weighs 25lbs. Available you have phenobarbital 25mg/5ml. How many ml do you administer per dose. So I'm having a bit of a hard time figuring out why I don't divide by 2 since it says 12hrs. Any help would be greatful.

    Online RN school???

    I talked to both schools and I want to pick the one that is best. For the BSN I would go directly to Indiana state but with my husband being in Afghanistan and having 2 little ones it's just really hard. We moved from our home and I don't have a lot of family support here so I thought it would be easier to get my ASN then my BSN when my husband's home. I do like both programs because they are both self paced. The military pays for 4k of the program. Which is why I considered doing the achieve test prep. My contract has every class I need broken with there fee and also with excelsior 4k fee for the CPNE. I have a price breakdown sheet. I'm not sure where you got your information but on my sheet it has both excelsiors fee which is 4k and that includes the enrollment and the CPNE, and there fee is 2k so total its 6k. Excelsior fee is 10k for everything not including the testing fees so the classes and the CPNE If I could upload it I would. Also the exams which are called ece are through excelsior and there about 325 a piece not 400-600.

    Online RN school???

    Let me try and explain what I'm saying. I understand the achieve is a book publishing company. I would pay them 2k for my prerequisites and my nursing classes. When I test for those nursing classes those are actually done after I enroll with excelsior. Excelsior would be the one awarding the degree. The CPNE is a pass/fail clinical there pass rate is actually lover than 64%. Excelsior College | Nursing. The 10k I was quoted from excelsior included my prerequisites and my nursing courses and the CPNE which is 4k of that portion.

    Online RN school???

    It's actually cheaper for me to go through achieve test prep. Im a recently licensed LPN so I only have 8 classes total. Excelsior quoted me 10k. From what I was told achieve, rue,chancellor are publishing company that gives you the material to pass the classes,they also do a 5 day CPNE prep. You enroll with excelsior to take the nursing classes and you are also awarded your degree through them. Achieve has a pass rate of 94% while excelsior has 64%. Has anyone tried either of these programs with any success?

    Online RN school???

    I've been looking into going to school online. I live in a really small town and its nearly impossible to get into the one local program. So I've looked into chancellor, excelsior, and achieve test prep. For the Associates program I was quoted 2500 and for the bachelor's degree 5020 then enroll in Indiana State. I am torn on what choice to make it is actually cheaper for me to enroll in Achieve with the promotion they have going on then it would be enrolling in excelsior. Any advice.... please.
