I am starting EKU's ADN program in the fall and I am worried about the dosage calculation test at the beginning of the semester that we have to pass. Has anyone taken it and knows what I should expect? I have been studying but I am really nervous about it.
Thanks for any help

Know your conversions. Its a super easy test if you know how to break down the question, and understand what they are asking for?

OK thanks. Do you know if they will do any drop rate problems? I havent focused on those as much as I study and I dont want to be thrown for a loop...
just curious

Drop rate is in semester 2. In your acceptance letter it tells you what chapters to study for your dosage test. Focus on those chapters and the posts tests at the end and you will do fine.

Drip rate and IV flow rate problems are no big deal at all. AS mentioned earlier, know conversions (2.2 LB=1Kg for example) and know what the question is asking.

Do like most nursing students do and cheat, copy off another. I have known several and they are all stupid people, but somehow they managed to pass, and it had nothing to do with studying. Some used their heads and copied from a smart person, and some used their tail and spread for the right people, but they are all called nurse now.

I just got accepted for the spring semester, and I am also worried about the dosage calculation test. How long was it?

If you need all these clues to pass the test, please allow someone else to administer my IV.

Ssick person.... everyone has to learn, and the reason people are worried about it is because they administer the test before the semester even begins. So, it is a question of what exactly we are going to be tested on, not if we understand the material.

The information you will be tested on is in your acceptance letter, it tells you the chapters to study for the dosage test. A word of advice is that you read the material the department provides for you and take the initiative to complete it. There are no shortcuts or wonderful tips other than to plan your life around school and plan on devoting the next 4 semesters to EKU Nursing.

. Dude your an ass! I'm in the Eku Adn program. Eku has the hardest program in Kentucky and the hihighest pass rate for the nclex. If you want to dog an Adn program and students from one, try another. Your ill informed. Your probably talking smack because you got turned down by a girl from the program!
For any one worried about the dosage test. Read the instructions carefully. Go over the practice test that is posted on black board. Good luck!

Ok, this is an extremely late response, but if morons in the program are depending on copying from other students who study their asses off, they will not succeed. IT TAKES ACTUAL WORK TO MAKE IT.....YOU ARE A LIABILITY IF YOU DO NOT ACTUALLY TAKE IT SERIOUSLY & DEPEND ON OTHERS TO PASS THE PROGRAM!!!!!!! It really upsets me that you, who apparently take part in copying/cheating thinks it's 'smart' to use other people. You should be ashamed....God help I ever be one of your patients should you actually make it through the program.
