  1. laxative protocol?

    I have two residents on my unit who get latulose. One gets it at 5pm and the other gets it at 8pm. our standing orders for no bm x3days is to first give 30 mL of MOM at HS. of course if the day nurse notices that someone hasn't gone to the bathroo...
  2. I work in a lock down alzheimers unit at a nursing home. we usually keep our med cart behind the nurses station so the residents won't mess with it. recently i had my relief, the 11-7 nurse complain that i put too many cups on the med cart. i thou...
  3. CNA assignments in LTC?

    The nurse working the hall decides which CNA has which residents. On my alzheimers unit there are basically two halls. one cna gets the front hall while the other gets the back hall. on the other halls outside my unit the nurse assigns the aids to ...
  4. Did anyone take ATI's in school?

    we had to do all the ati's too but it wasn't a 'you have to pass it in order to get your paperwork signed' type of thing. they basically used it as a predictor for us and for them of who would pass the NCLEX. i felt like the questions were nothing ...

  6. I Passed The Nclex-pn

    I think everyone walks out after testing feeling like you have failed. i believe the test is designed that way. i took my test on 6/2 and got 92 questions. i felt like i had guessed on most of my questions. but i found out monday 6/5 that i had pa...

  8. Shift differential?

    the place that i am planning on working (a nursing home) only pays a $0.75 shift differential. on the weekends they give $2.00 for working weekends plus the $0.75 shift differential. they also throw in bonuses if you work extra shifts when they are...
  9. How I'm reading my review questions?!

    i did that sometimes when i was in school. what i would do is underline the key words in the sentence. since obviously you can't do that on a computer, seek out the key words to the question and keep them in mind. look at your choices, pick one, an...
  10. NCLEX, ATT, actual license, and the NCBON?

    About how long did you have to wait to get your authorization to test after submitting all of your info?? I turned in my application with fees and registered with pearsonvue on 4/10/06. but i didn't get around to sending in my fingerprints and cbc a...
  11. Any PN students here?....

    i just had my final exam on the 5/9/06. now i'm looking forward to pinning on the 19th and taking the boards. i can't believe it is over. i'm happy but sad all at the same time. i am going to miss each and every person in my class. you really do...
  12. Digs in her Progress Notes!

    i don't think so. it sounds like she was just saying that her experience was different than yours. i do think that she could have just written what happened on her shift without the "Contrary to what was written above".
  13. How do you deal with anti-OB people?

    i think i know what message board you are referring to. there was a post about a mother who had had a previous c-section and had since then become an MD hater and would not deliver in a hospital under any circumstances. i guess at some point during...

  15. Group Mentality or Shining Star? (Vent)

    why don't you go up to their table and join in on the conversation?? when you are sitting by yourself do you think you look approachable?? sometimes you just have to show people that you are interested in having a relationship with them and not jus...
