Comprehensive overview and practice to refresh math skills for nursing. Helpful to review various types of dosing or calculations that can be required for multiple routes of medication administration. Division of materials into three modules which can be assigned/completed at different stages of nursing practice and med administration.

Good overview tutorial for healthcare professionals needing to refresh math skills. Also very helpful with learning to calculate medication dosages and intravenous (IV) rates. Provides extensive information regarding calculations, some examples and hands on activities. Possibly could be more interactive, it is reading intensive, for a participant that has minimal knowledge of healthcare calculations may be difficult to grasp concepts quickly. 

Technical Remarks:

The website was straight forward and easy to navigate.

Explains basic med admin in simple terms.  Good as an extra review for nursing students and for nurses as a brush up or review prior to med admin tests as part of employment requirements.

Technical Remarks:

Very user friendly
