In each of my 6 clinical rotations, we are required to take 3 math tests. You have to get an average of 80% of the three tests. If you don't, you fail the clinical. People fail the entire clinical because they don't do well on the math tests. Talk about pressure!!! Each math test (until this clinical) had 10 problems on them. Ten problems X 5 clinicals X 3 math tests in each + this clinical X 8 math questions X 3 means I had to answer 174 math questions in nursing school. And trust me, the equations were way more complicated than the above problem, HA!!
I'm also tooting my own horn because in this clinical rotation, I got 100% on all 3 tests--a first for me =)
