    Hello!

    I have a class assignment due for my Math for Clinical Calculations class, wherein I have to find a nurse and interview him/her over email or in person. I would be so thankful if someone would take the time to help me with this assignment. This project is due Saturday, October 15th 2016. Sorry about the time restraint. If you do not want your identity revealed, please let me know and I will only put initials or anonymous. Thanks again!

    1. What is your name?
    2. What field do you work in?
    3. How long have you worked in this field?
    4. What is the nurse to patient ratio in your unit?
    5. How long are your shifts?
    6. An IV of 1000 mL of 5% D/0.9% NaCl is started at 8 pm. The flow rate is 38 drops per minute, and the drop factor is 10 drops per milliliter. At what time will this infusion finish? Please show the work for the problem.
    7. Is there support staff on the unit to assist nurses?
    8. What do you like most about being a nurse?
    9. What do you like least about being a nurse?
    10. How has your job as a nurse impacted your life?

    Another quick math problem if you still have time. Not required but would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
    An IV is infusing at 300 milliunits per minute. The solution available is 20 units in 250 mL D5W. The drop factor is 15 gtt/mL. What is the drip rate in gtt/min?

    Hello Dave! Thank you for replying! No, no replies yet to the interview questions but I am hopeful. I appreciate any reply. I also actually want to add that my math problem for #6 was not necessary. I would appreciate it if instead of doing the math problems you would just tell me about your experiences with conversions and mathematical equations as it pertains to your job. What types of conversions do you usually need to do at work? Sorry about the confusion. Bell.
