Module 1 Introduction

    Hello! Are you ready to whisk away those mental cobwebs and review some basic math you learned many years ago in middle school?

    Nursing students and nurses need to feel confident in mastering basic math skills in order to solve medication dosage problems during the medication administration process. Unlike those days when you were responsible only for correct answers on a piece of paper, now you are responsible for the promotion of health, safety, and well being of your clients in various clinical settings. Medication errors are avoided by competent practitioners! Actually, it feels really good when you accomplish medication calculations and are competent in this area of your nursing practice. It is suggested that you work the problems without a calculator because you may find yourself working one day without a calculator! It will feel great when you are able to say: "I can do this without a calculator!" Believe me it is possible and necessary!
