Pediatric nursing | Nursing homework help

 

Hi all, 

These are all scenario based, I’m looking for responses from you, not stuff you found in the book.  Please use your book for reference but I want to know how you’d respond as the nurse.  I’m giving more points  (50 points) because we are approaching a halfway point and will give you an opportunity to sway your grades.   Please copy and paste this write your answers after the question and repost it as your response so I can grade it.  The answers don’t need to be long, I’m just assessing what you know and watch you put some of your critical thinking to the test!
