So I just found out today that I take a medication exam for UPMC Mercy during week one of orientation. Does anyone know what this medication exam consists of and any resources to study from? Any medications to be especially aware of? Thanks!
First week of orientation is all nurses orienting to hospital....all more genaric not unit specific type stuff. How to use charting system, different policy and equipment type things that are hospital or even UPMC wide that may not be same as where you went to school.
As important as knowing psych meds will be that is more something you will learn on your unit. This med test is entry into the job....are you safe to pass meds as a nurse. If dose is 500mg and you have 1g tablet do you know how much to give (if that is a calculation on the test that is just by chance.....I do not remeber the exact questions)
It is a very generic med calculation test
