I have just started my third year of NS and the most we have done so far for med math is 10 questions in a year 2 module that wasn't graded we just had to do them on our own before clincal and we just looked at the questions together as a group. I wish we had a class because I bought a med math book and am trying to do it on my own and wish i had help!

We also did not have calculations tests each semester with a mandatory pass edict. According to the administration, this material was supposed to be integrated into our classes. I was not satisfied, so I went to a nearby nursing school and enrolled in their pharmacology class by telling them that I needed the instruction and it wasn't being offered at my school. I was lucky, because most nursing schools do not allow non-matriculated students take any of their nursing courses. Other than that, to this day, I'm unsure. So what did I do? I bought a text, and am teaching myself and reviewing on my own in preparation for the NCLEX. That is about all the student can do, unless you want to engage someone to tutor you on the subject.
