Hi, Wyldeflower, I am not sure what FAFSA means, but I think it has something to do with math from the following posts. I am very thankful that I had most of my prerequisites done before nursing school
. The nursing school counted my 15 year old college algebra class so I did not have to take it again. At the time, I thought it was just one more class I didn't have to go to. But when my fellow nursing student friends started coming to me for algebra help, I was like, "I don't remember that crap." I do agree that "WE NEED BASIC MATH AND PHARMACOLOGY EQUATIONS.
Some of the best student nurses I know did not graduate because they could not pass college algebra. This sucks. They would have been great nurses. As a nurse for many years I have never used algebra. In fact, I did my own survey about a year ago. No one I knew used algebraic math. NO ONE! From science teachers, lawyers, engineers, draftsmen, construction engineers. If any nurse has used college algebra, I would like to know. (I have a 12th grade English teacher relative that says, "It is good for exercising the brain.") Maybe she is right, but as a nurse I have not had to use any college algebra equations such as xy2 - ab9 = ur?
