University of Pitt - New Nurse/New Hire Medication Exam

  1. Hello All,

    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!

    I will be also be starting at a UPMC hospital this month, and was curious about the medication exam. Have you taken it yet, and what were your thoughts about it? Any advice for preparing?

    Don't worry about it, it's basic calculations, if you don't pass they review it and let you retake a similar test.

    Okay good to know. What's passing? I had to do a medication calculation test in nursing school and you had to pass with a 100%. Sorry for all the questions... I just graduated in December and this is my first nursing job.
