DRUG DOSAGE & CALCULATION

Accurate and vigilant medication calculations are imperative to help prevent medication errors and sentinel events. As a result, many nursing students often express feelings of stress and anxiety when performing drug calculations. The medication calculation review provides students with a variety of calculation techniques that are fun and easy to learn.

In this review, a step-by-step process is included in each math problem so that students can become more confident in dosage calculations using all of the 3 methods: formula, dimensional analysis, ratio and proportion. Pre and post assessment exams are used to evaluate each student’s understanding and critical thinking skills needed to comprehend the major subject matters.

CRITICAL THINKING & TEST TAKING STRATEGIES

Critical thinking is an essential skill that allows the individual to make rational decisions. It is an essential component that is threaded throughout the nursing process which includes synthesizing, analyzing, applying, and evaluating evidence based knowledge.

The knowledge gained from these sessions will also benefit the prudent learner with test taking and effective communication skills.
