what math skills are needed to be a rn?

Attention to details: Good math skills shows that a person can handle a bunch of numbers in his or her head, has good attention to details (122 is never the same as 221), can understand how numbers trend up and down over many hours or days, and can convert amounts among metric and english units, over and over again without fail. Algebra2 & geometry are needed, but calculus1 and statistics can show one is great in math.
