Numeracy Skills for Drug Calculations


Drug Calculations are only a small part of nursing but nevertheless important. These e-learning resources should equip you with essential numeracy skills and help you with exam preparation. The materials have been split into sections so begin by choosing your year and intake and work through the topics you require. Each section has a multimedia presentation followed by example questions for you to practise; you may also check the correct answers.

If you require any additional assistance, free one-to-one appointments are available by contacting the Learning Development Service:, 028 9097 3618.

May I take this opportunity to wish you all the best in your studies and your time here at Queen’s.
