3-2-1 Calc! Comprehensive Dosage Calculations Online V2.0: 2 year Printed Access Card 1st Edition

Anna M. Curren, Gloria D. Pickar, EdD, RN

  • Published

Overview

3-2-1 CALC! COMPREHENSIVE DOSAGE CALCULATIONS ONLINE V2.0 is a full, interactive course that teaches the mathematical formulas nurses and other health care workers need to calculate accurate drug dosages. Your students can compare calculations in all three calculation methods—formula, ratio-proportion, and dimensional analysis or choose the one method that works best for them. Nine modules thoroughly cover both basic and advanced calculations and students can practice what they've learned by answering practice questions, completing case studies or taking one of the pre-determined or instructor created tests. Realistic drug labels, interactive syringes and videos complement the range of calculation competencies, from reading medication labels to calculation flow rates for heparin infusion. Instructors will experience expanded course administration functionality including the ability to customize the course experience, track student and class progress and access to a secure test-bank from which you can create and schedule tests. An easy and convenient way to teach dosage calculations in any setting, 3-2-1 CALC! COMPREHENSIVE DOSAGE CALCULATIONS ONLINE V2.0 can be used alone or alongside any of our market-leading dosage calculation books as an affordable online course that offers clear, step-by-step explanations, a wealth of practice problems, along with interactive exercises, videos, a calculator, testing, course administration, and more!

Anna M. Curren,

Anna Curren has been writing inspired clinical textbooks for more than 40 years. A nurse and former Associate Professor at California's Long Beach City College, she first wrote this text when the one she was using bore no resemblance to her students' clinical needs. Her graduate degree in instructional design, along with many student and instructor reviews, helped her create what is now the most adopted text on the subject. Also a successful entrepreneur, Ms. Curren founded Wallcur, Inc., a company which produces instructional products, including Injecta-Pad, Practi-Amp, Practi-Insulin Training Pack, and other learning resources. Ms. Curren also wrote the best-selling Dimensional Analysis For Meds, also by Cengage Learning.
