Default How much math does a nurse practitioner need?

Most RN programs only require algebra one and two and geometry, but will I need additional math courses to get my bachelors in nursing or to become a nurse practitioner?

I don't see why you need any special maths. From what I can see in Australia you just need maths in your final year of high school. This basically means you can do probability, geometry, and algebra.

There are nursing calculations books available, if you can easily do these then you won't have any trouble (they are not very hard).

Hi Singh..maybe that depends on the school where you are enrolled to! But generally, math in nursing will not be as complicated as it would be in engineering=). Minor math subjects are usually basic ( as in our school’s case) and then, you will also be needing math in major nursing subjects and pharmacology, but that again will be basic too, so definitely you can do it!
