I just wanted to update this thread for anyone looking for the latest information concerning the test. I just took it and got a 98. In my opinion, it was very easy. You just need to follow the study guide provided. There was absolutely no surprises on the test and everything came from the study guide. Good luck!

Hi itsme17,

Is it safe to say that reviewing the study guide topics is enough? Do I need to purhcase some online practice tests like NLN Pharma from examedge.com, etc? I want to make the most of my time in reviewing by focusing on the study guide topics rather than covering too much and missing the essentials.

Thank you very much.

Thank you so much for these study guides!  I am scheduled to take the test in 4 days! 

Were there questions that you had to know specific lab values for or was it more general?

Hi UpliftingRN,

If you don't mind me asking, how was your experience? Was it straight forward and from the study guide from RN.com?

Thanks.

I’m going to take the test soon.

Do I just have to know the basics such as monitor BP when giving a beta blocker like the guide says or do I need to know more about beta blockers?

Just curious if the questions really are that straightforward and direct from the guide.

Thanks!

Hello everyone, I thought I'd share some insight on what my hiring process was like with NYP/Columbia. Here's my timeline:

1. Graduated in December 2016

2. Around the 2nd wk of January, I attended a New Grad Event at my school

3. Within less than a week I received an email that I was considered a "Top Candidate" however I still had to apply for positions, and I had not yet taken the NCLEX. I kept in contact with the recruiter from my New Grad Event to keep her informed of my status.

4. I passed the boards Feb 16 and informed the recruiter of my status. She said congrats but I didn't really hear much from her after that.

5. Feb 22-28 I applied for a few positions anyway. I still had a "future consideration" posting on my profile, while the positions I applied for either said pending, or that I didn't qualify.

6. March 9 I was invited to interview. I interviewed March 16th and about 4 business days later I was offered the position.

7. I took my Pharm exam today April 4th and passed thank God! I was informed by the Talent Acquisition Specialist (TAS) that I have been on-boarding with, that NYP no longer gives out study guides :banghead: Initially I was told that I should receive my Study Guide in a few days. Days had passed and I hadn't received anything so I called the TAS. He never mentioned that it could be found on the NYP Workday Account, I discovered that myself. However, it turned out to be a list of rules for the test and not an actual study guide :( Thankfully, I came on here and found some Quizlet links, used RN.com, and did a practice NLN exam and that was very helpful. If you can find any previous study guides that is your best bet! Mine was adults based - multiple choice. The questions were pretty standard, not tricky. Side effects, drug calculations, and overall med administration/troubleshooting made up the exam. I know a few people who took the Pharm exam last Summer 2016 and they received a study guide. I'm not sure why as of 2017 a guide is not provided.

8. I did a few on-boarding processes today (Health screening, Security screening etc) and I'm looking forward to starting in a few weeks!

As you can see, my entire application process has taken about 4 months, I start 1st wk of May. It took me quite some time but I am BEYOND excited to begin my nursing career at NYP. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask & I'll answer them to the best of my ability!

Would u mind sharing emails so i can ask you a few questions please i cant send messages on here

Hi everyone,

I  recently  accepted a job at NYP and need to take Their Pharmacology test. I was told over the phone that no study guide will be provided. Does anyone still have their study guid from when they took the test, if so could you please email it to me. And if anyone has any helpful tips, please share.
