    Hey adp I have yet to take the pharm exam and I'm scheduled to take it this coming week. Sorry I for the late response, but I wouldn't have been much help since I still have no idea what it's going to cover lol. I'll be working at the Cornell branch, how about yourself? But I was wondering, since you've taken it yesterday, would you be so kind to let me know what kind of format and if it tests only pediatric meds? I still feel so lost!

    Elise721,

    It really all depends on what unit you're hired for. There are three different kinds: General/Adult, Psych, and Peds. Overall, I found http://www.amazon.com/Mosbys-Pharmac...dp_ob_image_bk to be very helpful.

    Hello All,

    First off, don't worry too much about this test. Prepare but don't obsess. I bought the recommended book Prentice Hall's Review and Rationals and just did the CD questions. I reviewed what I got wrong and looked up basic drugs such as: Vancomycin, Cardizem, the "Statins," digoxin, lasix, etc. Study categories like.. side effects of calcium channel blockers. I also focused on the sample questions HR gave... some of the same drugs were on the test.

    The new test is 70 questions, but 60 is graded and 10 are experimental.

    Good luck and just have faith that your nursing school has prepared you well !

    it's pretty much what they tell you it is. Study that book they recommend (though the test is easier than those practice Qs in the book)
    If you fail the first time, just study the print out they give you after your first test and you should be fine.
    please help. Do you you have the study guide??

    Negative, You still have at least 2 more interviews to get there. 1 with a Nurse Recruiter and then with the Nurse Manager if they think you are a candidate. THEN you take your pharm exam. I actually just got job with NYP/Columbia and have to take the pharm exam on the 18th.

    Hello, Da Milk of Amnesia. I was just hired by NYP Columbia and yours was the latest posting about the NYP pharm exam.

    How was it? Can you please give me advice on how to study for it? It's been a couple months since NCLEX and looking for a job, so I definitely need to brush up on meds.

    I'd appreciate any advice!
