    ICU Research Project

    From what I've gathered, the terms are almost used synonymously in research. I've seen a lot of research done for ICU delirium, but I was wanting to focus more on the sundowning aspect of dementia. Here are a few of the articles I've started reading through.

    ICU Research Project

    Hey all-- Just wanted to gather some guidance from you all. I'm in a nurse residency program for the ICU I'm working in as a post-grad and we have to submit a topic proposal for an evidence-based project. Here's what I've gotten so far: "For patients in the ICU who have dementia as a comorbidity, how does a combination of light therapy and nightly melatonin administration, compared to the use of antipsychotics, sedation, and/or restraints, affect the patient's length of stay in the hospital." If you have any suggestions on how to make my topic clearer or a better way to rearrange the structure, please let me know!

    UTHealth Nursing Spring 2017

    Hey Becky, So I had noticed that it was on my list before I submitted it so I called the registrar and the lady that answered was pretty short with me. She made me kind of feel dumb by asking "well what did you apply for" I told her I believe the pacesetter and she said "well then ignore it...". She definitely wasn't nice about it. I felt okay about it at the time, but nowt that it's crunch time I'm wondering if this woman just wanted me off the phone or if I really can just ignore it on my list

    Hey all-- Been patiently (sort of) waiting to hear anything from the school regarding the status of my application. So far it just shows complete. Does anyone else have on their To Do list something that says TX RN license?
