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

    The nursing program at my school does not allow the use of a calculator.I find this extremely ridiculous, since you have to get all 10 questions correct without one. Did your school allow calculators?

    Our school just started allowing calculators. My first couple of calculation test we were not allowed and they were 20 questions, had to get 18. Which a large amount of us passed. It can be done.

    Yes 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.

    We were allowed to as well. Every semester the amount of questions and time are different.

    We were allowed to have one, reason being any nurse on the floor has access to a calculator...

    Nope, we had about 20 questions we had to get 100% on.

    It's a beautiful day to save lives.

    I agree... BOTH real life and NCLEX (NCLEX calculator on their system) allow simple calculators... schools should too...
