    During my clinicals if an instructor asked me a question about a medication.. then I better know the answer.. we were always given ample time to look up the meds and make drug cards.. if we didnt know the answer from memory we were allowed to pull out the card and read it.
    In pharm class we had to know everything about every drug we were tested on..
    It sux i know.. but it will help you as a nurse.. As a nurse, I still look up medications
