# IV Drip Rate Formula: Calculation Practice Quiz!

15 Questions | Attempts: 19158  Settings  Are you pursuing a nursing course? IV drip-rate formula: calculation practice quiz is designed for practicing nursing exam with this module. This quiz will test your knowledge on how to solve IV flow rate drip. In nursing school, you will have to learn how to calculate how much intravenous medication will be given via a flow rate. Flow rates are measured in mL/hr (milliliters per hour). Although in the job setting, most IV pumps will automatically calculate this, you will need to know how to double-check the IV pump to ensure the right amount of drug is being infused.
