# HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Nursing Math

- 0Nov 27, '07 by stuffbubby541Can anyone recommend a good nursing math calculations website. I am having a rough time. I got so upset in my calculations class today, that I cried. I guess ns is getting the best of me. All my instructor kept saying to us is "this is easy".....at that point, I just wanted to pack my bags and books and go home.

I guess I was emotional from an A/P exam that I took later today and it was difficult.

Anyway, please help. This is the second week of math calculations and I gotta score a 90 to pass the class!:uhoh21:

I struggle with math too I have to just do all the problems I can find to get it to sink in, DA and Ratio and Proportion work best for my pea-brain!bluewolf9193 and stuffbubby541 like this. - 0Nov 27, '07 by stuffbubby541Beth,

Thanks so much for catching my request. I will check out the site.

Thanks again. I'll be posting again, if I have any questions. Oh, I asked one of the site managers for this forum if they can establish a math site only...for calculations. So we'll see!

Thanks,

stuff

I tutored a fellow student who could not get an 80% in the math test after 2 attempts. I showed her the dimensional analysis technique and she passed with 91% on her third and last attempt. So look into that method, I find it the easiest by far.cmb73 likes this. - 2Mar 11, '08 by M&M+RNthe nurse procalc booklet with cd is very helpful. i don't know any websites for nurse math, but i might interest you with my short formulas.arrggh it's hard to type formulas here.

probs.

pills/powder/ampules/vials: dose ordered (d) divide drug on hand (h) then multiply volume (v/ml) this formula applies to insulin units too

gtt/mins: gtt factor(gf) divide #minutes(m) then multiply volume (v/ml)

make sure you understand the question first and convert what needs to be converted.pugluvr214 and Dianacabana like this. - 1May 9, '08 by BubbadoggyThis page http://www.bruteforcestudyguide.com/...lculation.html has a calculator that shows you the steps to calculate the value.

Hope this helps.lilhev333 likes this. - 1May 10, '08 by frogprincessQuote from m&m+rni love those formulas they really help me in my pharm class i remember the dosage formula by a little brain tag... what is ordered is more important than what you have so it goes on top...then multiply by the milli's. it helps me to brain tag things... good luckthe nurse procalc booklet with cd is very helpful. i don't know any websites for nurse math, but i might interest you with my short formulas.arrggh it's hard to type formulas here.
