Medication Test at hospitals

  1. HELP!!! Does anyone know what the medication tests consist of at the hospitals. I am supposed to take a medication test next week. I haven't done any drug calculations since March of last year. Need to brush on what could possibly be on the tests. I would appreciate any help you could provide.

    Hi! I have a med test next week too, the info they gave us to review consisted of very basic calculations, PO and IV. DId they give you any kind of orientation material that may give you some clues?

    I took one a year ago. It was very basic med identification and simple calculations.

    When I was hired at my current job, I was given the National League of Nursing's Medication Test. 70 questions, took about an hour. Basic calculations, drug effects, classifications, the usual stuff.

    The website with test plans is here: http://www.nln.org/testprods/pas_medadmin.htm

    At my facility, it was used after a hiring decision, and then if you didn't get above 90% you got a take home remediation to work on for a couple weeks. Don't know how other facilities do it.

    There were some things that I'd never heard of, but mostly stuff that you learn in nursing school. Do some brush up through your pharmacology text.

    Good luck!
