    The nurse should calculate the correction dose the patient should take.

    Correction dose = [actual (144mg/dl) - target blood glucose (100mg/dl in a fasting situation) ] : correction factor (50)

    Correction dose = 1 (0.88) unit

    The nurse will need to add 1 unit to the 8 units that are already prescribed.
