What to Study

Posted

I am an LPN already and I know that I need to review some things but I don't know what to review. If you all could give me some examples of what you study that would be great. I don't catch a lot of things when I work. For example potassium was ordered without a dose and a time and I missed that. The five rights are important but you have to know when to use them.

I guess I have trouble retaining information to. If anyone has any suggestions about how they study that would be great.

The five rights are used anytime you pass medication. Always triple check your medication. I guess I do not understand what you are asking, did you have a medication error? It is important to know lab values etc.
