Hi! So the Monday after next I start my CNA course as the first step to me getting into nursing school. After I become certified, I want to work full-time and go to school part-time, taking a basic math course because... Quite frankly, I'm terrible at math. I was a horrible student growing up, and I hated math so I never paid attention to my lessons, and it's been biting me in the butt ever since. I originally had tested into College Algebra, but absolutely could not do the homework assignments. Even after watching videos and explanations for 2+ hours, I still could not answer a problem on my homework. I think perhaps a lot of it had to do with my anxiety/depression/low self-esteem (I've gotten much better at that now, and find myself doing things that before, I couldn't)I mean math is all about logic, right? I'd like to think I'm a pretty logical person. I've always done pretty well in science because I could at least use logic to figure problems out (so long as they didn't involve equations) so I think that logical-reasoning would've transferred over...Were you or do you know any nurses who started out with poor math skills but were able to learn them eventually?I thought this post was better suited for the "nurses" section instead of "students" because you would have experience... I hope that's okay.
