### Description

Nurses in clinical environments will often encounter situations that require the use of mathematical formulas and computations, such as metric conversions, to provide safe and effective patient care. Therefore, it is essential for the nurse to have a strong understanding of basic math and good math skills. This program lays the foundation for nursing math skills with a review of the concepts of whole numbers and fractions, and the processes for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. It teaches how to solve equations with fractions and decimels, discusses the numerical basis for the metric system, and lists the metric system's basic units of measurement.
