I need to take the Dosage test and pass with a 90%
We don't even have this test in HI, and I'm not sure what to expect. This is for a school in STL, MO.
I tried to look up books online but couldn't find any!
And the school's website has a practice test..and sure, I can memorize it, but seriously, I'd rather just study like a mad woman so I'm positive I'll pass it. But I need something to study!!!!
Has anyone taken it? I'm not the best test taker. I asked my sister for advice (she is so gifted mentally..) And she's no help. She seriously got like, a perfect score on the NET. I'm not kidding. Her score was practically unbelievable.
my guess is you're looking at the st. louis community colleges...that's where i go....depending on how soon you have to take the test (it's only good for one year prior to admission), they offer a dosage calculations class that will get you 150% ready for the test...it's called nrsg 704 405 - nursing math
, and is offered on just about every campus...call the continuing ed office or look here: http://www.stlcc.edu/conted/
. looks like they have plenty of openings for classes that start at the end of this month clear through to april. they're one night a week for 4 weeks.
the admittance test is pretty basic nursing math equations and not a big deal....the book they use in that class, and which will serve you well once you get in to the program, should be in the bookstore on campus, but is also available online ( http://www.amazon.com/calculate-conf...e=utf8&s=books
). it's really very helpful and everyone in my class last semester agreed that it was one of the best text investments we had made. you will reference it all through school!
good luck and let me know if you have any other questions!

I almost spit out my milk (that I was drinking with my cookies, lol)....you give me too much credit!!
No, I'm not a smart cookie -- I've just "been there, done that"...I remember how confusing and head spinning it all could be....my only nursing contact was my friend in CA who got me IN to this mess and she couldn't help me here
