Prentice Hall's companion website for ratio and proportion dosage calculations, Pearsoned.com, can help students gain more knowledge and prepare for the pediatric nursing medication test. The site provides reviews of arithmetic dosage calculation and tests the students knowledge through the practice questions and additional exercises.
Prentice Hall's Ratio & Proportion Dosage Calculations includes a dedicated chapter for calculating pediatric dosages. The chapter helps students determine safe pediatric doses, perform calculations when administering medications and calculate pediatric dosages based on body weight. It contains 15 practice questions that can be submitted for grading and a section that focuses on realistic scenarios. Students can also take the comprehensive self-test at the end of the book.
Another practice tip is to take the medication test provided by Children's Minnesota. The test is in PDF format and involves answering practice questions, converting units and calculating dosages, including IV maintenance dosages.
Nurseslabs.com also provides practice questions for pediatric nursing. Online users can take a timed test and are given a minute to answer each question. There is a practice mode that lets users answer questions and submit answers for checking, while a text mode lets the user read and answer questions at her own pace.
