Pre-Employment Pharm Test?

  1. 0
    I'm not sure this is in the right area, wasn't quite sure where it fit! I'm sorry! I have a pharm test for my L&D position. I'm not terribly worried, just curious as HR didn't really have an answer. I have the study guide for the test, but was wondering if anyone has taken a test prior to employment. Is it NCLEX style or just a plain old normal test? I like to know the style of the test before taking it so I know how to prepare mentally. Thank you!

    I had to take a pharm test before I was hired at my current job at the ER, all it was was a 25 question pencil and paper test of super easy med calc questions! If its anything like the one I had to take you should be fine!
    Best of luck!

    I took one about two weeks into orientation, 30 questions, pencil paper and calc. very basic, just like in school,
    Dr orders 100 mg of BLAH BLAH, comes in a tablet of 50 mg, what do you give? Two tablets. etc and some conversion stuff, and some where med so and so is what? a cardiac, and antianxiety or what? plus like you they gave me a study guide

    did you have to just do calc questions or did they ask your specific medications and what they are for?

    Specific meds- ranged anywhere from cardiac to L&D and calculations. It really wasn't bad. Similar to the first pharm test in a pharm class. Quite simple.
