👩⚕️ HI I’M CATHY PARKES 👩⚕️
I’m here to help you Level Up! During my time at CSUSM’s Accelerated Bachelor’s of Nursing program, I helped my fellow classmates who were struggling with the exam, pass and graduate. After receiving my BSN I went on to become an RN at Scripps Encinitas Hospital. As more and more students reached out to me for help, I decided to start this channel to help people across the world, LEVEL UP.

    diabetic patients have decreased sensory receptors in their extremities so they are at risk for burns. (diabetic neuropathy)

    Patient should avoid using heating pads on feet to prevent skin from potentially burning, which can result in blisters.
