let me ask you this. . .how badly did you want to learn to ride a bike or drive a car? what were you willing to do? would you just get behind the wheel of a car and chance running someone over and injuring or killing them if you were worried because you thought you wouldn't be able to turn the steering wheel, watch the speedometer and press the gas pedal at the same time? a lot of kids worry about that before they go driving. how did you finally resolve those issues?
math is only one obstacle that you will face in nursing. there are a handful of others that you don't even know about yet.
what i am getting at is your character. how do you
handle challenges in your life? in the steam of things, this is merely a hurdle that you have to get over like learning to drive a car, tie your shoes, ride a bike, learn how to calculate a drug dosage, and there will be many more to come. what counts is that you roll up your sleeves, pitch in and do something about it
. it involves initiative, flexibility and learning capacity. you are just as intelligent as anyone of us that has already gone to nursing school
. there is no reason, other than your own motivation, that you can't open a book or take a refresher course in basic math and get started on your way toward a better mastery of math. no reason at all.
rns are leaders, problem solvers and role models. what better way to prove to yourself that you are all three than to take the bull by the horns and solve your own problems with math so you can go on into a nursing career? what a story of hope you will have to tell others!
