AWESOME

by Lizzie F. on 2021-08-24 for Dosage Calculation (Nursing)

I had pharmacology at a local CC as a pre requisite for the ABSN program I am applying to. I feel as though I didn’t really learn what I wanted to as the course I took was meant for pharm techs, not nurses. I have been so grateful for this breakdown from Lecturio/Rhonda. The space repetition flashcards are awesome as well and I am supplementing the cards I’m making in Anki with them :)
