    DescriptionTo promote safe practice, nursing schools test for basic arithmetic both at interview stage and during the 3 years of nurse training. "How to Master Nursing Calculations" will help you to cope with these tests, offering a step-by-step approach which will take you from base-level knowledge to competency both in drug calculations and the ability to read drug dosage charts. This book begins with a helpful diagnostic section which will help you to identify your strengths and weaknesses, before going on to cover basic numeracy. This book goes on to deal with drug dosage calculations and prescription awareness questions at both basic and more advanced levels. It features clear illustrations showing how to read instrument scales, medical admin records and pharmaceutical labels. Combining drug dosage charts, a chapter on drug administration (including a list of abbreviations and their meanings), mock tests with answers and full explanations, "How to Master Nursing Calculations" will be an essential asset during your years as a trainee nurse - and beyond.
