Pediatric Rounding on NCLEX

Posted

I am scheduled to take my NCLEX soon and have been using Lippincott, Hurst and Uworld as practice. I've noticed that many of the questions regarding pediatric dosage calculations have the answers rounded up. My school program had drilled into us that you never round up with peds and always drop the last number. Which is correct for the NCLEX? I would hate to mess up a math question with the wrong rounding rules. Thanks!
