    Hi DoGoodThenGo

    I took the exam again and failed it, now I have to wait 6 months to take it again, I do very well with calculations but the med administration part I suck...So now I cant be considered for a position there until I retake it in January and pass..
    Once you start passing out Medications more it will just be stuck in your head. I started my career in a nursing home and had to pass out so many medications that eventually it stuck with me, once I got into Med/Surg it was all go from there. Every single time you pass a medication and don't know it look it up. Can't find it the Pharmacist is your friend. It always help.

    Maybe some students will chime in on some books you can buy or even something you can do in the library. I find reading journals such as Advance or even the journal my state sends me can help me out too. Lastly, CEUs about medications can help you along as well. Not sure how many you need to keep up with in NY.

    You will always have to take some kind of test no matter where you are going to work. Some places have you do them independently and some do not.

    OIC, am sorry to hear that.

    Thinking positive you took the exam and passed once, so you can do it again. Knuckle down and study the areas you did poorly in on the last attempt and you should pass next year.

    As others have stated there isn't a facilily in NYC that doesn't require a math/pharma exam for new hires. Some won't even give out an application until one has passed said exam.

    Doing some research found Montefiore designed and began implementing their exam back in 2002 in response to what was seen as very high numbers of med errors.

    Has anyone taken the Pharm/Drug Calculations test at Montefiore? If so what type of medication questions are on it? Basic stuff that I'll remember or should I go back and re-read/re-learn my pharm books? And did they let you use a calculator

    Hi,

    I saw that back in Nov. you took the Montefiore pharm exam. I was wondering how it went. I have to take it early next month and was wondering if you could tell me anything about it. Any pointers?
    Thanks!

    I actually just took this exam less than 2 weeks ago. It's easy. It is divided in two parts: math calculation and medication administration policies. I think each section had 15 questions. It was easy. I got one wrong, not because I didn't know the answer, it was because I pressed the wrong button.
