To be proficient at medication administration, it is necessary to have a good understanding of basic arithmetic and the metric system. Arithmetic underpins the practice of medication administration. The purpose of this package is to enable Enrolled Nurses converting a Certificate IV or its equivalent to the Diploma of Nursing or students just beginning the nursing program to revise basic arithmetic skills to enable them to complete the nursing calculation component of the unit.

Comply with infection prevention and control policies and procedures - (HLT15)

Infection control is the way we eliminate or reduce the risk for the spread, or the potential to spread infection. When you visit or begin working in any workplace you will see that there is a specific way of doing things. Policies and procedures make sure workplaces are safe for you and clients. As health care workers we are faced with the challenge of maintaining an environment in which the transmission of micro-organisms is minimised. Everybody who works in or visits a health workplace has a role in infection control. It is important all healthcare workers deliver a high standard of care while following infection control policies and procedures.
