    Unsure of next steps

    Heres the most condensed story: I had a patient a couple nights ago that is an anticipated death and a DNR. I am still in orientation with a preceptor. Patient was ordered PRN anti anxiety and pain medication frequently to ease her passing. I took the medication from the pixus system and my preceptor witnessed the waste. My preceptor accidentally threw the vial away, apologized and said she would chart that the bar-code is unavailable when we got back to the room. We go back to the room and I see the medicine on the mar (which for some reason makes me think that my preceptor entered it, but its basically an alert saying the med has been scanned at the pixus) scan the patient and ask family the name then administer the narcotic. I literally woke up in the middle of the night realizing that unless she did go back and chart that it was given, I didn't chart that I gave the PRN narcotic.This was 30 minutes before shift change so I did tell the oncoming nurse I was giving the med and told them again during report that I gave it and the time I gave it. my question is what is my next step. I do work tomorrow. Do I chart the time I gave the med, tell my supervisor? Im not sure. I am hoping that my preceptor did chart that it was given but I am preparing for the fact she probably did not. Thank you!

    finances in school

    Just in case someone was following this, I managed to start the semester and finish nursing school! I filed for unemployment and took out a small federal loan so I was financially sound. I worked during the summers as well.

    finances in school

    They accept standard loans but I cannot get the standard loans because I already have my bachelors.

    finances in school

    I did think about delaying school but it took me 3 years to get into a program and my school doesn't allow you to defer to another semester. My husband should be back from disability around mid September but that is a maybe but he will definitely be contributing once he goes back to work. Our rent is cheap and we just have the basics right now. I am working as a server now on the weekends and make around 80 a day doing that. I have been searching for weekend jobs but have been unsuccessful. I have been searching for financial assistance and since my job will be ending in October and ill be in school I may be able to apply for the unemployment training benefits program.

    Finances in school

    hey everyone! Here is my situation , I am starting school (ADN) soon and will be working weekends to help support myself in school. My husband is on disability right now and is not making much money at the moment. My job is picking up and moving to another location and the new manager will not allow me to work weekends like my current manager does so I will not have a job starting Oct 9. Another issue is I already have my bachelors so I am unable to get much financial aid. My school does not accept private student loans or direct PLUS loans which is what I was hoping for after exhausting grants and the little that I have saved. What programs or things can I do to be able to support myself and live off on in school? Unemployment? I am looking into a work-study already. Would private loans not make sense since I need money for 2 years? What options do I have.
