Medicines Management Assessment

If you are shortlisted for a nursing role, you will be asked to take a medicines management assessment as part of the interview process. Human Resources will contact you with the date and time.

To help you prepare, you can download an example test paper and drug cupboard. (These are 'pdf' documents - most computers will open them automatically when you double click on the link. Otherwise, you'll need to install Adobe Acrobat). The prescriptions on the real assessment will vary, but the format will be the same.

Calculators are not permitted, but the IV infusion calculation formula will be available.

Please do not hesitate to contact either an HR officer or a nurse from the Department of Nursing Development if you need to discuss any concerns.
