    Default Any enrolled nurse students?

    Hi

    Im 1/3 of the way through my Dip of Nursing and am wondering if anyone can suggest some text books to buy that will help with medication calculations?

    Thanks in advance

    You can get little study guide/books for med calcs. Pearsons makes one and there are others.
    I actually had one that i tried to give away but no one wanted so i sold it on a fb page. It might be worth checking fb out cause i've seen a few numeracy/med clac books for sale. Some are quite cheap.
    When i was doing the course we got given a game basically that we could play on the computer. It was an interactive way to learn about drugs and dosages basically. Something like that might be worth looking out for?
    It was called Medication Management for health professionals.
