How helpful is the nursing course 095 - Calc Med Dosage I?

Did you take it before your nursing classes or during.

Is it manageable while taking during the nursing courses?

Honestly, I think for the first 2 semesters all you need is the math book that is required for the tests. It's basically ratio & Proportion. Fairly easy. I heard that the math for Peds is alot harder, so I don't know. My opinion: Not worth it for the first 2 semesters.

I would not even get the required math for meds book, it is a total waist of money! A lot of the required books are. All the math info you need is in your modules. The math book has different rules, if you follow the rules exactly it could cause you to fail a test. You do get a math review before the math exam with your teacher, if you have any questions or misconceptions ask then. The math is that bad. Dont stress over it.

Thanks guys for all your imput, I'm so afraid of failing. I was so excited about everything

leading up to nursing school and now that its finally here - I will be invited into the program

this September; I am beside myself. I'm terrified! I'm really hard on myself and scared of

making stupid mistakes that will get me kicked out or something. Is there anything that I

should brush up on, or just relax and enjoy the time that I have; being that I will soon

live and breath school.

I understand your nervousness, but other than buying Fluids and Electrolytes Made Easy and reviewing it at your leasure, I'd just tidy things up and organize around your house because you will not have time once school starts. And get lots of rest and hang out with your friends because that too will suffer once school starts. I see my BFF about once every 2 months. I'm glad my friends are understanding.

Congrats!

Yep! What she said---clean the house, relax, take a weekend get-away if you can. You WILL NOT have time once in the program. Have a heart to heart with friends and family & let them know the deal. Most will understand. You will find out who your real friends are, trust me. I had many friends that, sadly, no longer call me to "go out"- they give me grief about school, and how it can't be THAT busy! Oh well. My real friends can't wait until I am done, and are COMPLETELY understanding (as well as family). :)

I will definately go out and get the electrolytes book, I've heard that one a lot.

Ok, guys I will try and relax, oh the nerves. It's just I hear about all the A students

who are struggling with nursing and I am not an all A student, I suppose I could be

if I wanted to, but I do get As and Bs. I hopes its enough. One things for sure, I

have great study habits, so no problem there, just hope I'm able to understand

and retain the information. You guys rock!
