How hard is nursing math? I'm considering nursing school, possibly in an Accelerated BSN program. Math has always been a struggle but I'm working on it. I looked at a practice dosage calculation test, and it seemed to be pretty doable: metrics, conversions, decimals--with the emphasis, of course, on getting right answers. Medicating scares me. Is it unrealistic for someone who's math phobic to want to go into this field? Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
