9780335243594: Nurses! Test yourself in Essential Calculation Skills

"This book will be of great benefit to student nurses. Following the clear, step by step guides and worked examples will enable you to quickly develop the confidence to master more complex processes. It will also be an invaluable resource for mentors supporting students."
Dorothy Adam, Lecturer, The Robert Gordon University, UK

"This book is a fundamental companion for all nurses wanting to become more proficient at medication calculations. The book is designed to find areas for improvements through a series of tests that start with a basic calculation review. Working through the book will help you to build confidence in the clinical environment."
James Pearson-Jenkins, Senior Lecturer of Adult Acute Nursing, University of Wolverhampton, UK

"This book is a useful tool for all nurses. I would recommend it for nursing staff undertaking intravenous or other medication management courses/ modules. It would also benefit nurses who have to undertake calculations tests as part of their new post or ongoing development."
Amy Hutchinson, Student Nurse, University of Ulster, UK

"Through simple examples, exercises and gradual progression, this book will help to remove the anxiety often associated with the arithmetic involved in drug calculations commonly encountered in clinical practice. The book will be of use to pre-registration and registered nurses alike. It provides an opportunity for both self assessment and practice, as such it will be a useful tool for improving confidence, competence and patient safety in a critical skill."
Jim Jolly, Head of Academic Unit for Long Term Conditions, School of Healthcare, University of Leeds, UK
