One-Girl you didn't need math for nursing? but what about math involved with taking patient's blood pressure, heart rate, measuring out medications, weight/height stuff etc...there seems a lot of math involved in nursing careers...or I thought there was?
I'll jump in here even though I may be a bit confused as to what you mean by "math". Taking a person's blood pressure does not require doing any calculations. It requires listening and watching and charting those numbers on paper or in a computer. If you can count to 80 or so, you can take a heart rate (usually don't have to do even that). Many meds come pre-measured but there are occasions when you might have to measure out 1/2 cc in a syringe. That's super easy, the lines are marked.
Is that what you mean? These days so much is done by machines and computers that really, unfortunately, IMO, you don't have to do too much
