This fluid & electrolyte quiz is designed to test your knowledge on hypotonic, hypertonic, and isotonic solutions. In addition, you will be quizzed on your ability to understand how osmosis works in these type of osmolarity conditions.
In many of your nursing school classes and for the NCLEX exam, you will have to know how hypotonic, hypertonic, and isotonic solutions work on the cell and the nursing interventions when administrating these type of fluids.
