By less stress, I mean....LESS STRESS!
I went to school today and they handed us a 8 page worksheet on IV calculations and what not, we even learned the drop factor. I have successfully completed the paper and I am confident that I know what I am doing! It wasn't what I made it out to be at all! I am crazy for thinking IV Calc's. were going to be the death of me!
I do have one minor question though to any RN's/RN Students out there...feel free to answer cause I need your help to make sure I got it right!
The order is Kefzol 500 mg in 50 cc of D5W. Administer med over 20 min. What rate will you set the pump?
I did (50cc/20 min)(60min)=150 mL/hr
Please,Please tell me I am correct?! That is the only one I had to think twice about because since it is under one hour I had to multiply by 60.
I am so happy, I am out of school Monday so I have a 3 day weekend! Now if only I can spend it wisely. Today I spent about 4-6 hours on homework and studying alone. I am now ahead, but I still have more I could do! I really do feel accomplished though! My hubby is almost off work so I am going to wrap this thing up and spend some time with him! Have an awesome night blogging buddies:)
