Final Push

Photobucket

Monday is the 31st.

Remember what that means?

NCLEX.

Nursing Boards.

Agh!


Things have started to get a little hazy in my head. I feel doped up and wasted on prioritization, meds, symptoms, risk factors, and precautions. I'm dreaming in nursing scenarios and lab values crawl into and out of my brain during odd moments like when I'm feeding my daughter some cut up chicken.

It's like those Bing commercials.

Chicken: High in Protein. Protein normal value 6.0-8.0. Low in fat. Sat fat is bad. Cholesterol. LDL = bad. HDL = good. Cholesterol levels need to be less than 200. HTN = Systolic > 140 & Diastolic > 100. Wait, is that right?...I need to look that up again. HTN in pregnancy is bad can lead to preeclampsia. Preeclampsia = proteinuria - can administer IV Mag Sulf in preterm labor. Assess DTR's. In overdose antidote is Calcium Gluconate...

And it goes on and on and on. Seriously we just went from chicken to overdosing on Mag in less than a minute.


Focus Hayley!
