Pocket Nurse® Blog Spot

Welcome to the Pocket Nurse Blog!

Our Mission at Pocket Nurse is to provide both quality medical supplies and equipment for Healthcare Educators and Simulation Centers. We now are also offering information and updates on the current trends, products, and legislation related to our Healthcare Education and Simulation Center colleagues. You are invited to add to this Blog by posting "Best Practices", Conference information, product needs and other ideas that will enhance the education of students and meet the needs of Faculty.
As you know, the integration of Medical Simulation into Healthcare Curriculum is growing. Pocket Nurse is involved with AIMS (Advanced Initiatives in Medical Simulation) to lobby the Federal Government for funding for simulation. Here is the link to the Bill:http://www.medsim.org/advocacy.asp
We look forward to hearing from you!

  • I'm excited to see what will be posted here. I appreciate the tips in the catalog, such as adding betadine to peanut butter to simulate a positive hemmocult. Just wish there were more. This should be helpful.

  • What tube do we use to test blood for dilantin and cmp?


    Depending on your lab, draw the specimen into a lavender-top, green-top, or red-top tube ... Most labs report a therapeutic total phenytoin level between 10 and 20 mcg/ml.
