1. I have an interview scheduled for next week and was told that in addition to an exam on medication administration, there will also be a test on PT/INR. I'm familiar with INRatio, but what types of questions could be asked?

    Thanks for the reply. . . that's about the only question I could think of, but an entire quiz on PT/INR?? I can't imagine what else could be asked!?

    Yeh, normal ranges is all I can think of too. Does the agency use the PT/INR machine? Maybe they want you to be proficient in that, though no big deal, like a glucometer only a little more tempermental. Precautions for patients maybe? Hmmm, let me know what a whole quiz was about.

    Have you tried putting this into a search engine to see what you come up with? I've googled a lot of things that I have questions about and have come up with some pretty good references to help me.

    Well, it turns out it was just 3 questions. What do the results tell you? How do you operate it? and the last I can't remember. It was part of one of the 3 tests I had to take, the others being ventilator management and trach care. Quite an afternoon of multiple choice! my vision is blurry
    Again, thanks for the ideas!
