Nclex computation question

  1. If we need to answer a computation question, do we need to put the standard units? (ml, mg, ml/min, etc) Or do we just put the numbers?

    The test will tell you what it wants. It will also be specific on how to round it, either whole number or to which decimal point. Hope this helps!

    In my test, it asked for numbers only

    So of it asks for mL/hour, we only put the number? Do we still have to put mL/hour beside the answer?

    The block actually had the ml/hr next to it... so I just had to put the number in the empty box. I only had one math question, so I am positive about that one. It also told me which place to round to.

    Yep. I had 5 dosage calc questions and they were all that way

    It's been 6 years since I took NCLEX and this is how I remember it being. The answer box would say ________ mL/hr or gtts/min or whatever they are looking for.
