    I am curious is your take home test allowed to be a collaborative effort? Many schools and instructors visit this site...while AN is anonymous it is open to the public to view.

    Not sure I understand the question. Do you know what a MAR is? Who uses it? For what purpose? What would those people need to know? Is all that information in the order sheet you copied here? What is unclear/confusing to you?

    What are you asking us to do here?

    MAR is medication administration report. That's simply what meds to give and when. Is that really all that is being asked? Asking for some help is okay but I agree with other posters that this should be really done on your own

    Good luck!

    I've seen it written that way (per rectum) on my MAR at work. Although it does read like one for each rectum hahha.
