    How do you take blood pressures for 90 people?

    Yes I have to take everyone's BP every day.
  2. I have to do that along with blood sugars, flow sheets, feedings, and colostomies in 7 hours. Any advice? I have another nurse to help me but he/she usually does the blood sugars which is like 14 people. So it's one person doing 90 people's blood pressures. Please help. Thanks.

    Where can I buy scrubs?

    Where do you guys buy nursing scrubs?
  4. Does anyone watch House? Does anyone think it's a cool show to watch if you're interested in medicine? What other medical shows do you guys recommend? I've watched Nurse Jackie as well. It doesn't have to be medical either. It could just have critical thinking aspect.

    How do you keep your LVN job?

    Sorry I couldn't reply earlier. There was no reply tab. I have issues with a bit of everything. Yeah I have problem with details. I usually feel bored of reading details on medications...Usually I don't have enough time to read through the entire MAR or chart and when I do it feels like the meds are just numbers or blobs of text. There's nothing that is significant that catches my attention. I also have problems with calling the doctor. I usually just delegate to the RN. And sometimes the RN says don't call the doctor when I'm supposed to call the Dr. There's no way to bypass the RN is there? So sometimes I don't know if I should listen to the RN or go against the RN and call the Dr. without her/his consent. What do you guys think? I've never been one to challenge authority. Usually it's just the medications. Sometimes I don't critically think such as when to give a medication or when not to give a medication. That also ties in with assessment. Sometimes I have to assess a patient first before I give the medication. But like sometimes I have no idea how to assess the patient. As in I forgot everything I learned in nursing school.

    What do you do when a patient dies?

    Yeah who officially pronounces them dead? Is it the doctor? Or the nurse? Does the nurse have to call the doctor? Who notifies the family also and the mortician? Is it the nurse?

    Any advice finding a job?

    So I don't have a job right now. I was wondering if anyone had tips on how to find a job as an LVN or just any entry level job? I also wanted to know how to keep a job? Any advice would be appreciated.

    How to do a med pass?

    Well where I work it's an electronic MAR. It's organized alphabetically and has all the patients medications. I was wondering how you guys go about passing meds? How do you start? How do you end? Do you go by room number? Do you organize it by administration time? Do you start with blood sugar/insulin patients first? Thanks for your help.

    Nursing interview

    There's not much on the company so I can't research it online. How do I answer the question, "Why do you want to work here?"
