The state forums are awful. They used to be really nice, but I agree that they are now all about this or that school waiting list or the New Grad program at hospital x,y,z. I wish they'd separate that stuff from the state forums again.
Just a quick response, I work nights and need to head to bed soon. I know in Oncology I used math quite often to verify chemotherapy dosages. Also used basic math to calculate the ANC of patients and for Heparin drip rates. Although I did use a calculator first, I always double checked by hand. In my new position, I use basic math alot to figure insulin dosages for type I diabetics.
Maybe you should spend time in nursing a bit and then decide your direction. Experience will help on your journey to being an NP.
