Quote from txspadequeen921
i think you need sociology, but ill never understand why nurses need to take english comp unless it is just to make you a well rounded person. have not come across a nurse yet to chart in complete sentences. another is algebra , nursing math yes, algebra no.. i just don't know when the last time i was working on the floor and had to apply nursing to a matrix...
if you ever go to grad school, or ever have to write a paper (and you will in nursing school, i promise), you will be glad you had comp. english comp is a basic writing course - yes, you need it. you will be writing papers, care plans
, article critiques - you need it.
the complexities of algebra do seem ridiculous. i placed out of algebra in college and had to take calculus because i had to take a "higher math". yes, this helps with all the sines and tangents i encounter daily in clinical (yes, i'm kidding). stats, which i also had to take, did not qualify as math (!!!!). go figure. and stats did me no good at all when i had to take applied stats this past semester. the one good thing about applied stats is you need it for practically every grad school, and i will have already taken it (ours is a master's level course). so thank god for small favors.
