I was accepted into the RN program for spring, 2008 and just found out that we will have to take a drug/dosage calculations test and score 90% or better within the first two weeks of school...you have two chances to take it and if you can't get 90% then you fail out!!
I was so excited to get in but now I'm totally intimidated about this? Can anyone tell me what to expect???:uhoh21:
It's my impression that you are always on the chopping block in nursing school and this is why it is so stressful.
We had to take the TEAS exam once we were accepted you fail your out, then we will have to keep a GPA for each exam we have to get 75% on each exam or we are out, not an average for the semester but never get anything below a 75% period. they do however let you make up one exam, but from what my friends tell me you feel like you are always playing catch up if you have to retake even one exam. It's just how nursing school is, they have certain standards and we will have to keep up with them. The thing that keeps me going is that people DO get through this, it's a lot of work but others before me have done it so I will too, I will just do what is required of me and try and keep a positive attitude, many times it's all in the attitude! Good luck on your dosage test you have come this far!!!
Oh and fwiw I have taken a dosage calc class already and it was actually very easy.
