25-q-of-the-week

Question Options:
1.) A
2.) B
3.) C
4.) D

Correct Option/Answers: 4

Rationale:
Option 1: The unit symbol should be written in the singular form; therefore, it is inappropriate to document it as “8.5 mgs of medication.”
Option 2: The unit symbol should not be followed by a period unless it is the last word in a sentence; therefore, it is inappropriate to write as “5 mg. of medication.”
Option 3: There should be a space between the number and the unit symbol; therefore, “2mL IV injection” is inappropriate documentation.
Option 4: The documentation “5 mg of medication” recorded by student nurse D is correct notation according to the International System of Units (SI) rules of notation.

Question:
Which intervention of the new nurse when administering heparin to a client with venous thrombosis requires correction?

Question Options:
1.) Administering heparin into the umbilicus
2.) Avoiding massaging the site of administration
3.) Avoiding the administering of medication at the same site of injection repeatedly
4.) Administering heparin into the deep subcutaneous tissue of the abdomen

Correct Option/Answers: 1

Rationale:
Option 1: Administering heparin into the umbilicus increases the risk of bleeding. Therefore, the nurse should administer heparin at least 2 inches away from the umbilicus.
Option 2: Providing massage at the site of injection may cause tissue damage and may result in bruising. Therefore, the nurse should avoid massaging the site of administration.
Option 3: The nurse should avoid giving the injection at the same site repeatedly in order to prevent tissue damage and necrosis.
Option 4: Administering heparin into superficial skin layers results in skin irritation. Therefore, the nurse should administer heparin into the deep subcutaneous tissue of the abdomen.

We may have solved your NCLEX® practice woes

If you’re a nursing student, there’s one test that you’re looking forward to with maybe a bit of trepidation or dread: NCLEX®.

You’re learning as much as possible in your classroom labs and clinical days, but every nursing student we’ve talked to still wants to find practice questions and study guides to help them prepare in their own time. (You overachievers!) And of course, being a publisher, we have a whole section of our website devoted to the NCLEX® Review books you know and love.

But reading all the NCLEX® practice questions you can find in print won’t help you if you can’t identify which topics you struggle with. That’s why we created Davis Edge for NCLEX-RN®. It’s an interactive, adaptive test bank online. You can use it on any device, mobile or desktop. As you begin answering questions in Davis Edge, it will target which topics you’re struggling with and provide more practice questions related to those areas.

If you’ve never heard of Davis Edge before, here’s an introductory video that might help. We also have Davis Edge products for RN Fundamentals, LPN Fundamentals, LPN Med-Surg, and Psych courses!

 

We’ve gotten so much feedback from instructors and students that Davis Edge has helped them learn and apply their course material, and we can’t wait to see what you think of Davis Edge NCLEX-RN®! We’re even trying something completely new – students will be able to preview the product as soon as it comes out, in a free 2-day trial. That way, you can see for yourself if it will help you learn before you commit to buying. Sign up here and be the first to know when this product is available in December. We’ll email you ASAP and you can let us know when to start your trial so you have plenty of time to practice.
