Math for Meds is a pharmacology preparation course for nursing students. The course begins with a review of basic mathematical principles, then progresses through drug dosage calculations, ratio and proportion, and medication safety. Common drug measures will also be discussed, and medication labels reviewed. By the end of the 30-hour course, students will have hands-on experience with injections and IV drip rate calculations.
If class size permits, students may observe a long-term care med pass.
Books and calculators will be provided.
This course is scheduled on an as needed/requested basis.
