Nursing Care related to man.

Question answered by WhoKnows?1995
It is useful to do your own homework, especially since this is a "What do you think?" question and you are thinking about nursing.
1) Biological---even if he were a toad, a nurse could do nursing for any vertebrate---so say what a nurse can do
Spiritual and psychosocial are pretty interrelated
2) Psychosocial----means having to do with the society and the person----so say how nursing helps a patient relate to the world around him, both in the environment when he is sick right now and when he is healing and improving. (How will he get along with his family and his boss or his friends. How will his girlfriend relate to him now that he has this disability? How can a nursing staff/person help him recover in the world)
3)Spiritual---means relating to his self image and relationship to God or the "Universe"--- How can nursing help the patient re-think his self-image in light of his changing health status? How will Nursing help him to re-think his goals in relation to his changed conditions.
I hope this helps. Just answer my questions and put them in your words. It helps to break the question down and attack this kind of question one step at a time.
Can nursing students work as nurses aides without being certified?
I'm hopefully starting nursing school this fall, but I haven't had any nurses aid training. Will I be able to get a job as a nurses aide or do I have to be certified?
I live in Ohio if that helps. I don't know if the state laws are different.
Question answered by Joey
Some hospitals allow you to get hired on as an Patient Care Tech (PCT) after a certain amount of Nursing School. (It all very from hospital to hospital. Alot of times its after you have finished your pre regs and have started the Nursing class.) I am in my second year of my RN and I work in the ER and we have a few that went that route, I was already an EMT so I didnt need any time as a Nursing studant. As a PCT I do everything the nurses dont want to do. LOL But I love it, you learn the basics from the nurses and I have learned far more then the rest in my class. I insert Foley Caths, Wound dressing/cleaning, Patient Rounding, Triage Pts at front desk, EKG's, Lab draws, monitor tech, lab ordering, and so much more. I would suggest it to everyone. Hope this helps and if you have anymore questions please feel free to email me.
Is there a nursing career out there that combines Sociology with nursing?
I absolutely love nursing and sociology!!! I know that social work and nursing sometimes cross over into each others lanes, but is there a nursing career that focuses on sociological problems, or anything close to this?
Please, no job offers. Only serious people who want to answer my question, only.

Probably so - public health or psychiatric nursing come to mine. But first you've got to get that nursing degree and RN license.
What nursing specialties are there that require a little more than a bachelors degree?
I want to be a nurse midwife, but am looking around. I am going to get a bachelors degree in nursing, but don't necessarily want to stop there. I want to go to school for maybe 1-2 more years for a specialty (as in midwifery) what other specialties are there? Would pediatric nursing need more years or not? Any nurses out there have a job they really really love and how many years of school?
Question answered by Fernando
There are several paths that can be taken to become a pediatric nurse. You can become a LPN, an RN, or obtain your Bachelor's in Nursing. A Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), takes approximately one year. Your scope of practice varies with the state that you live in. In my state, Tennessee, LPNs can start IVs and give medications, with the exception of a few specific medications. They can take care of many types of patients except the most critical patients that present to our ED. While the track to becoming an LPN is the shortest, your opportunities are also limited.
A Registered Nurse (RN) is the next type of nurse that you can become. Typically, this takes approximately two years to achieve. Nurses who go through a RN program receive either a nursing certificate or an associate's degree in nursing (ADN or ASN). Registered nurses can work in many areas and have a wide range of privileges
Good luck with your new career
Can a nursing home seize the assets of next of kin?
My mother is in a nursing home and does not have any assets. Can the nursing home obtain their fees from me for my mother's stay in the home?
Question answered by mildred f
There's far more to your question than what you have told us so far, as the other posters indicate.
Essentially, when your relative enters a nursing home, that nursing home must be paid for their services, the accommodations, their food, etc. so her social security is no longer paid since the nursing home is providing for all of her needs. Her Medicare/Medicaid is converted to a Nursing Home type of Medicare/Medicaid. It is this that pays the bills to the nursing home, not her social security. Her social security is effectively stopped when she entered the nursing home..
Any other assets come into the picture differently.
It is important to know what you state's laws are regarding her assets. In general, if your mother had a Will, and you are the executor, then you have a greater burden than if there is no Will. You don't pay out of your pocket, **you pay out of your mother's pocket.**
Also, as her daughter, not her executor, you have no responsibility to pay any of her bills.
You need to sort out the state requirements in the nursing home. I suggest you talk to the social worker/case manager at he nursing home to find out about these money issues. They will know the state laws on these matters. Would save you the cost of an attorney.
Be sure you sign any documents to the effect that it is not your bill. Just be careful how you sign any paperwork. If possible, don't sign anything.
How do nursing programs usually work at universities?
I am going to the University of Iowa this fall, and I would like to get into the nursing program, or major in nursing. I am wondering though, how nursing programs usually work. Do I go to college for 2 years then apply to the nursing program? or only 1 year? or do I major in nursing and go for 4 years, then get into a nursing program after that? I have talked to a few people about it, but am still a little unclear, so figured i'd try here. I'd appreciate any advice or answers, from anyone, whether a nurse or not.
Question answered by >(^._.^)<
For the University of Iowa, it looks like you need to complete at least 64 credit hours of the pre-reqs before you apply to the nursing phase of the program: http://www.nursing.uiowa.edu/academic_programs/undergrad/bsn/deadlines.htm
Here's a list of the required pre-reqs. You would be looking at the requirements for 2012 and beyond, since you are not starting clinicals until at least 2013: http://www.nursing.uiowa.edu/academic_programs/undergrad/bsn/faq.htm
I would highly recommend you contact an academic advisor at their College of Nursing on Monday or Tuesday and go over the specifics with them before you register for you fall classes.
Most BSN programs have you taking prereqs the first 3 or 4 semesters of college and then begin nursing classes either 2nd semester sophomore year or the 1st semester of your junior year.

What are some nursing issues that I could have as a topic to make a poster?
I am in nursing school. In our management and trends of nursing class, we are to make a poster covering a nursing issue. My mind is blank on a topic.
Examples of other groups topics are: ethics of nursing, continuing eduation, nursing shortage, and advance practice nurse roles.
Any ideas would be great.

What is the difference between a nursing aide and a registered nurse?
I always thought nursing aides did some of the more unpleasant work in health care (things that involve bodily fluids and such) and registered nurses did more patient care? But someone told me that registered nurses also have to deal with such things. Understandably vomit and such is unavoidable in a hospital, but RNs aren't the ones to clean it up are they?
Question answered by PhantomRN
Nursing Aides do things such as bed baths, change bed linens, help patients on bed pans or to the toilet, ect...Nurses do patient care, assessments, administer medications and treatments, teaching, ect...It doesn't mean being a nurse, you won't have to do an occasional bed bath or more often, bed pans, toileting, cleaning up messes, ect...
What are your concepts or view about nursing and profession?
For nurses out there, what can you say about nursing? How about profession?
Question answered by L
Well, my sister-in-law, aunt, and best friend's mother are all nurses. Each one seems to be phenomenal at their job. They all earn quite comfortable incomes, too. My friend's mother works nights and is now the head nurse in her department. She earns over $100,000 annually.
However, it is frustrating to deal with doctors who are arrogant and disconnected. I'm a medical student and I come from a family of doctors (and I don't just mean my father, I mean everyone) but I was never raised to look down on nurses. To be honest, they kind of run the place. They work hard and know a huge store of medical information but they are plagued by the stereotypes of the pre-60s-era nurse. Today's nurse is basically a doctor. They are highly respected and increasingly well-paid.
Obviously, I am not a nurse. But I respect what they do tremendously and will NOT be one of the doctors who just barks orders and thinks they are superior. The three nurses I know well are very assertive women. I don't think you can be a wilting flower in this profession.
As a nurse, you're in charge of the administration of drugs (upon the doctor's order, of course), keeping patients comfortable and stable between visits from the attending and/or residents, changing bed pans, placing IVs (try to watch a seasoned old doctor do this -- it's pathetic), and being ready with emergency short-term life-saving skills and tools. Then the doctor swoops in and hopefully he or she will thank the nursing team but the odds are slim. To be perfectly honest, after a few years of working with nurses who aren't screwing up, some doctors might get used to it and stop noticing. Only when things go wrong does the hammer come down hard. It's unfair but nobody said a medical career of any kind would be anything but thankless. You can't become a nurse or a doctor for the gratitude, that's for sure.
Nursing school is a lot of science and math. You have to know how to convert units of measure flawlessly and understand what you're giving your patient. You will learn about drug interactions, illnesses, symptoms, and how to handle patients. This is definitely not the entire nursing program syllabus but those are the highlights I've heard about most.
