How much math do nurses have to know? I'm in Pre-calculus as my math pre-req and I can't figure out how to practice..this BS is difficult. I feel like giving up, saying **** nursing, and blowing my brains out..
I mean really..
Did you guys have college algebra to worry about? Or Calculus I? I remember a community college in Washington state required Calculus I as a pre-req and I'm like why? Is it really that much math? Here at my school they only require college algebra(pre-calc I is 80% the same so pretty much an equivalent)..
And I think to myself...if I can't make it in this math class, I can't make it into nursing school
...or through it...
I feel like breaking down and crying..
Also, was nursing school more practice and less memorization?
Like is it like biology where you can study stuff by reading or flashcards or writing or was it like math where you can't use flashcards or reading you just have to keep writing the equations?

Thank you! I thought about increasing my education after I got my BSN but I don't know if I want to do that now. This pre-calc I class is just ******** up. I thought about taking more chemistry classes to be an anesthsiologist-RN but I don't know if I want to do that now. I'm sure it requires physics which I'm sure requires Calculus based physics which requires me to learn more math.
