Numeracy in Nursing and Healthcare: Calculations and Practice
When it is obvious that people are struggling with what are basic calculations, as part of a test exam or at their workdesk, one would be right to question their ability to accurately calculate doses in critical situations or environments such as on the Ward. This Booklet is not designed to train you in undertaking Pharmaceutical calculations per se but to assist with calculation questions. This Booklet is designed to accompany Booklet 1 and is structured to contain at the start some examples of calculations that students have stated they find difficult followed by a step by step approach to solving the problem. These short presentations take you through the steps in how to calculate the doses you need to give a patient. This handout covers a variety of numeracy based tasks which nurses and midwives may be required to perform in practice. These include drug calculations and setting drip rates on the controls of intravenous infusion controllers. The handout covers the following: SI units and conversions, calculating drug quantities in both tablet and liquid form, and calculating intravenous flow rates and drip rates.

Nothing like this exists in the health professions, nor outside the U. NCSBN is now making it available to schools of nursing free of charge through participation in a research study. Reports about the numbers and types of errors and near misses that occur in your program — only your program will see these reports; The ability to analyze data related to student errors and near misses; Biannual reports from NCSBN about the aggregate numbers and types of errors and near misses so that you can compare them with your program reports; and The opportunity to collaborate with a network of colleagues who are interested in patient safety and just culture in schools of nursing. Prelicensure nursing schools that are interested in participating in the SSR initiative must first complete the application.
