Calculating medication and intravenous infusions can be difficult for some students nurses, this resource offers the opportunity for students nurses, registered nurses and other health care professionals to practice their drug and infusion calculation skills. The layout is easy to navigate with distinctive icons which appeals to health care users. I particularly like that the questions are presented in the format of scenarios which will assist the learner with application. Assistance is offered if the user does not understand the concept, making this resource excellent for self directed learning. This tool is worth referring to my student as practice will assist with building drug and intravenous fluid calculation skills.
