I took Fundamentals (1st of 4 nursing courses) in spring of 2015. I'm a single parent of 3 and I work full-time. I took the evening class because it worked best for my family. Clinical was on Saturdays from 7-7p.m. It was hard BUT not impossible. If you do your assigned readings, take great notes, and study...you'll be fine. I took fundamentals with Suzanne Karlson. A lot of people have not so nice things to say about her but I do not. She was extremely helpful to me. She was always available to meet with me when I needed help and always offered words of encouragement. I also took advantage of the tutors when I had a hard time understanding the content.

Advice: Refresh on your A&P prior to starting the nursing courses...it will make your life a whole lot easier. Prior to starting your first nursing course, you'll be provided a check list of items to be completed before you start. Get your shots, your physical, and whatever else is required. Don't procrastinate! People were asked to leave on the first day of class because they were incompliant.

Practice basic math if you're not comfortable with it because you'll need it for medication calculations fairly early on (addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, fractions and decimals) you'll need to know how to convert them from one to the other.

Kiss your social life good-bye….read, read, study, read some more, and study some more!!!

Good luck!

I'm happy to help in any way that I can.

Question about the math exam.. When do you take it & what exactly is on it?

Sorry I'm so late. You take the math exam within the first couple of weeks of starting Nursing 1000. It's basic math. (addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, fractions and decimals) you'll need to know how to convert them from one to the other. They are in the form of simple medication calculations.

For example: A client is ordered 50 mg of gentamicin (Garamycin) by IM injection. The drug is available in 20 mg/5 mL. How many mL should the nurse administer?

A)1.8 ml B)2 ml C)2.4 ml D)12.5 ml
