Were you guys allowed the use of a calculator when you took your dosage test?


0Aug 20, '13 by mzrainydayz, BSN, RNYes we are allowed to use calculators, We get 10 questions at thirty minutes. Without a calculator I could do the math but it probably would take me longer.

0Aug 20, '13 by SunshineDaisyWe were allowed to as well. Every semester the amount of questions and time are different.

0Aug 20, '13 by seconddegreebsnNope, and we had an hour to do 25 questions with lots of long division...

0Aug 21, '13 by ILoveHealthCareNope, we had about 20 questions we had to get 100% on.
It's a beautiful day to save lives. 
2Aug 21, '13 by StudentOfHealingI agree... BOTH real life and NCLEX (NCLEX calculator on their system) allow simple calculators... schools should too...

0Aug 21, '13 by StudentOfHealingI meant NCLEX gives YOU a simple calculator on their system. Not that YOU can bring one.
clarification. 
0Aug 21, '13 by turnforthenurse, BSNWe were allowed to use them on every dosage test except for the IV calculations one, where we had to figure out mL/hr and gtt/min. Talk about a lot of long division...
