Category: The Nursing Process

Accessed on 2.26.16

************SENIOR ADVICE TO YOUNGER STUDENTS!******************
From Ms. Davis (again!): Get involved! Participate in school activities. Take advantage of opportunities that come to you, and if they don't seek them out. Colleges (and cool people) aren't looking for complainers who don't do anything with their time. 

SHOUT OUT! THANK YOU Mr. Childs, Ms. Bell, and Mr. McCormick for allowing your classes to participate in the STI screenings today. Your support is appreciated! Does your class read the announcements? Shout your teacher out! See Ms. Davis or email

CORRECT ANSWER to Medical Question of the Day:
  a) Deficient knowledge related to food restrictions associated with anesthesia 
Reason: The client's statement reveals a Deficient knowledge related to food restrictions associated with general anesthesia. Fear related to surgeryRisk for impaired skin integrity related to upcoming surgery, and Ineffective coping related to the stress of surgery may be applicable nursing diagnoses but they aren't related to the client's statement
