Ah--- gives me gas. Okay maybe it's this low carb diet I'm doing for the last 6 weeks of summer. Is that too much information? Probably. lol
So who's out there loves conversion factors and dosage calculations?
I sure don't, but heck we all have to deal with it, learn it and be good at it. Because you never know, there could be a power failure in the hospital and *gasp* no nifty little computers to figure out proper dosage for you.
And God know the last thing you want to happen is screw up on the meds and over dose your patients.
Hypothetically speaking of course
Going back to low carb, I just have to say it does work, but you can't be on it for straight weeks. I do a modified carb cycling where I consume 55 g of carbs max for 2 weeks, increase it by 60-70g the following week by introducing high GI fruits and veggies and only eat whole wheat variety.
I stay away from white breads and pasta, but if I honestly have to have it, I have a little bit of it.
Lost like 4 lbs in one week, probably just water weight, but heck it's a boost in my weightloss morale!
Any other nursing students out there that's going through the same anxieties of the dreaded 15lbs gain from clinicals?
