If nursing is what you really want to go into, don't let being scared of math keep you away.
Take remedial math classes, use the school's tutoring center, check out math help books from a local library, ask a friend or family member to tutor you, or whatever it takes to learn to be more confident in math.
Math is definitely not my strong point either, but the more I study, the better I am becoming. Also, I am actually "excited" about how well I am doing in practicing Algebra.
I took Algebra in high school (I and II) and never did very well. In college, I took the 2nd out of 3 remedial Algebra classes, made a B, skipped to college Algebra in 2001, made a B.
Now, I'm going to retake it, and I am practicing for my upcoming class. Yes, I'm making silly mistakes that I have to learn to not make, but like I said, I'm actually excited about how well I'm doing overall!
You can be too! Think positive, work as many problems as you can!!!!! www.math.com
, as well as many other math websites online can help.
(Look at the "Math websites" sticky in the pre-nursing forum. I've listed a couple of other sites there that I have found useful as well.) Also, if you find yourself stuck on a problem, feel free to post the problem, and what you have completed in trying to solve it. That way someone else can try to help you figure out what you did wrong. I've done this recently, and two wonderful AllNurses.com members helped tremendously!!!
Good luck, you can do it! :hatparty:
