Description

Satakunta University of Applied Sciences and Metropolia University of Applied Sciences have co-produced this clinical calculations course (1 cr). The course consists of 24 clinical cases with a case video, interactive tutoring per case and self-assessment per case.

NOTE! Completion of the course will not give a qualification for drug administration. Qualification is always licensed by the law (e.g. A certified/authorised nurse).

The course covers the mathematics behind clinical calculations to the extent necessary for a nurse. The course is intended for new nursing students or nurses who want to revise their existing skills. The course focuses on minimising fears/uncertainty related to calculations and it highlights systematic self-assessment.

A key part of this course is self-assessment of learning: Students are provided with information of their progress in relation to the overall objectives of the course. In addition, the student can get personalised recommendations on the materials that he or she might need to study for optimum progression.
