Good morning. If you’ve started your nursing semester I want to take a moment to wish you a great semester. If you haven’t started then enjoy some days off before you begin. I would like to also mention we made a goof and completely missed a post a couple of weeks ago. It’s been a busy time for us, but that is still no excuse.
We have revised our posting schedule a bit – http://www.nclexreviewonline.com/posting-plan-for-nclex-topics/
You can also review the other things we’ve covered using that link.
Today we’re going to cover the post we missed – Acid / Base balance – then Thursday we’ll have a post about taking notes, then we’ll continue the NCLEX topic series.
NCLEX Topics Acid / Base Balance
This topic is covered in Saunders in chapter 10.
A very good explanation of everything you’ll need to know.
Pinterest is a great tool to use – remember to use your own account and make categories – then save only the best images. Here is a search I did for acid base – https://www.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=acid%20base&rs=typed&term_meta=acid%7Ctyped&term_meta=base%7Ctyped
