I'm still on the fence about enrolling in the lpn program and the main thing that is holding me back is the math. From my research my program is 1yr long at a Vo Tech type school and you don't need pre required classes to start. This is something ill need to take a loan out for so I need to make sure I can do this. Now for the embarrassing part.....
When I was in high school I had a lot of trouble with math and they put me in the "slower math classes" I'm not sure the correct term for it but needless to say I learned nothing there because my teacher would hand me her grade book and class work and I would grade papers for her and she would give me a grade that way. She did this with a lot of students...she never got up and taught class. Here is what I do know.. Addition..subtraction...multiplication and division. Long division is tricky for me but I'm working on that.
I'm willing to learn but I want to make sure that it is something I will be able to learn and not fail at because these loans aren't cheap. I was reading about lab values and I was completely lost!
I guess I'm just looking for advice if you all that have been through it think i can get through the program or if I'm just too dumb and should try. Feel free to let me know if I'm not smart enough...I need honest feedback. Thanks
