Nursing Fundamentals…oy vey!

The first semester of nursing school is hard enough…throw your Fundamentals class into the mix and you’re looking at a serious stress bomb. This is one class where details matter…and there are a metric butt-ton of them! How high to hang this, how far to insert that, how long to wait between intervals of such-and-such, how to do X, when to do Y…it can boggle the mind of even the most organized and studious student. Truth be told, once you’re out in ‘the real world’ there are an awful lot of conversations that go like this:

“Hey Sally, given an enema lately? I haven’t done it since nursing school, and that was on a mannequin.”
“I think you hang the bag 12 inches high?”
“No,” pipes in someone else, “I think it’s 18. Or is it 24?”
“And how far do you go in? 4 inches? Is the water warm or room temp?”
“Oh, let’s just go look it up.”

And that’s what you do…you look things up. But in school that’s not an option, so your pretty (or handsome) little head will be swimming with details you never knew existed. Have no fear! If you’ve already heeded my advice and downloaded the gFlash app onto your iPhone, then you will soon be studying away to your heart’s content.

You want the flashcard sets titled Straight A Nursing Fundamentals Unit 1A; Straight A Nursing Fundamentals Unit 1B; Straight A Nursing how much, how many what volume; Straight A Nursing Injections; Straight A Nursing how often, when; Straight A Nursing NG Tubes/Enteral Feeding.

Good luck…and be safe out there!

    Hi, I’m a first semester nursing student and have 3 weeks left until the semester is over and 3 weeks until my Fundamentals comprehensive final exam… I would LOVE to have these flashcards, but I have an Android. Is there a way I can get these on my Android? Thanks!!!

      Make sure you are searching within the “G-Flash Catalog”. I just did it and they all showed up. Look for “Straight A Nursing”
