Reliable, Valid & Free - looking for med and dysrhythmia tests

  1. I am looking for reliable and valid tests for medication (general knowledge & calculation) and dysrhythmia management. It would be great if they were free or low-cost. Does anyone have suggestions or resources besides the NLN products?

    no, but I want to caution you about reliability and validity of tests. A poorly created test that does not measure what you want it to measure can do a lot of harm.

    I'm not sure if you'd consider BKAT. Is it for critical care and ED nsg staff? New from nursing research: the basic knowledge ass... [Heart Lung. 1984] - PubMed result

    Thanks for the input - I am very well aware of all the legal issues related to employment testing. I have been an educator since the "dawn of time" & deposed in employment and clinical liability lawsuits over the years. I'm the mean old hag from corporate who is always putting the kibosh on locally created tests, but I'd really like to be able to provide alternatives for facilities that simply don't have the funds to use commercial instruments.
