    Hi esc_newnurse! How do you like the PICU? I was wondering if you could send me a study guide or material that you found helpful in passing the peds pharm exam? I would be extremely grateful!

    Hi @esc_newnurse, I know it has been awhile since you took your pharm exam, but I was hoping you might have some advice? I was given the study guide, however I used a drug book to fill it out, and when I compare that info to info found online, some of it differs. I'm not sure which source to trust, and I am wondering if the test makes it pretty easy to find the right answer? Thank you, and any insight into this exam would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi rnsvcmc, I too was recently hired for the PICU. I think even though we will be in the PICU, we take the basic pediatric pharm exam, because that is the study guide they gave us. When do you take your test?

    I also used a drug book to fill out all of the info, and I would definitely recommend doing that or using the internet to find everything. Good luck!!!

    Hi Anna, I used the Davis Drug Guide for Nurses. From what people have been saying I think it will be easier than we are expecting. It's hard not knowing what to expect!

    Hi Nurselaur1
    i hope it's an easy exam but I am very nervous at the same time. I have had a few coworkers who work at NYP have different feedback nothing that has consoled me.
    when are you taking your exam?

    What have they said? I take my exam Tuesday and am very nervous. I am hoping it is easy to eliminate answers, leading to the correct response. I guess we will find out soon! But I would love hearing the feedback your friends said, as I haven't heard anything.

    Hi nurselaur1
    how was the pharm exam??
  12. by   nurselaur1
    I passed! It definitely wasn't that bad, definitely just study the study guide and you'll do great. That's all I did and I got a 97.5%. I wasn't sure on some of my answers, but went with the one I thought was most correct, and apparently guessed right. Stick to your gut and you'll do great! Good luck!
