Hi! I have been seriously considering going to nursing school. I have an undergraduate in Psychology and I am a very compassionate person. The only thing is I am more English/verbal than mathematical. I got through trig in college and I wasn't the biggest dummy in the class but I don't think I am very mathematically inclined. The only thing that really scares me about nursing is making a dosage/med error. A new friend of mine who is a nurse said I shouldn't let that stop me. She said there are lots of safeguards in Nursing to make sure that doesn't happen. Thoughts?!!! Also, I have had occasional muscular back problems in the past but this can be controlled if I do regular exercise. Could that be a problem also? Thanks. Toni.
I am in my first semester, and I was a little concerned about the drug math too. But now that we have started doing it, I am one of the best ones in the class at it! (not bragging, just stating) One little piece of advice my husband ALWAYS give me.
Don't go into nursing scared. Always tell yourself that you can do anything, just get yourself psyched up. Because if you are scared about making a mistake, or doing something wrong, it is almost GUARANTEED that you will make a mistake! Just keep telling yourself that you can do it! If you have that attitude, you will do great! Hope this helps!
Oh, p.s. If you made it through college trig, you are one step up on me. I flunked H.S. algebra II
