Dosage Test Prep Class

  1. Just wanted to post on here and tell people that I just finished the dosage test prep class at STLCC (Forest Park), and it was totally worth taking. The class is called NRSG 704, it's 1 day a week for 4 weeks and the cost is $29. Book is optional- we didn't use it in class. Anyway I heard about this class on this forum and it was an awesome suggestion so I thought I would share in case anyone else is looking for some help prepping for their dosage tests.

    I am going to be attending Barnes and I know we have to take a few of them, and I am assuming that every other program out there makes you take them as well. After this class I have a lot of confidence in my ability to do dosage calculations, and feel I am prepared for the tests. Definitely look into it if you feel like you need some help!

    I ended up taking the class twice due to the time in between when I applied and when I was able to start (at that time the test was only good for a year as I recall). I took it at both FP and Meramec and each time I got every pennie's worth of my money for the class. The instructors were top-notch and knew their material. I DID buy the book for the first class (which I used for the second class also) and referred to it many times during nursing school. But I understand if there are those who prefer not to have an extra text to purchase or store.

    Good thread!

    The class is listed under the Continuing Ed (CE) courses, not the regular Credit classes.

    It's NRSG 704 and is being offered on all 3 campuses this summer:

    I have to retake math dosage cal and it has to transfer if i take it somewhere else, does this class transfer or is it just under cont. education which does not transfer?

    It's only a CE class, so my guess would be that it will not transfer. You can try to call one of the campuses and ask an advisor about that. I don't know who might have a dosage class that would transfer in the STL area. Perhaps someone else will respond and let you know if there is one....

    Best wishes!
