i finally have saved enough money to work parttime and go back to school fulltime in a few months :yeah:

i start my pre nursing courses in the fall and i was wondering is there anything i should be studying now as a jump start ?

I would brush up on my math skills. This is foundational knowledge you'll be needing in school for the next few years.

i just bought a math book yesterday :)

The math is really dosage calculations. So if you could get a dosage calculation book it would be good. Know conversions factors such as ounces to mls, but any good dosage calculation book will give you the conversions you need to know. My program has a book called Clinical Calculations by Joyce LeFever Kee and Sally M. Marshall. I don't know how it compares with other books as it is the only book I have used. So far have passed all my dosage tests (knock on wood)

Good luck to you!
