Week 2NURS 6521 Question 1 1 out of 1 points Drugs have a high potential for abuse. There is no routine therapeutic use for these drugs and they are not available for regular use. They may be obtained for “investigational use only” by applying to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency. Examples include heroin and LSD. Which scheduled drug is this? Question 2 1 out of 1 points What critical piece of information is missing from the following medication order: Amoxicillin 250 mg every 8 hours? Question 3 1 out of 1 points A patient comes to primary clinic for strep throat. A throat swab culture is sent to lab. What information is required for the nurse practitioner to disclose on lab transmittal? Question 4 1 out of 1 points A nurse is providing care for a 71-year-old woman who was sponsored to emigrate from Mexico to the United States 6 months ago.

Knowing the pharmacokinetics does not concern most patients.
