Cornell Note-Taking System Instructions:
- Record: During the lecture, use the note-taking column to record the lecture using telegraphic sentences.
- Questions: As soon after class as possible, formulate questions based onthe notes in the right-hand column. Writing questions helps to clarifymeanings, reveal relationships, establish continuity, and strengthenmemory. Also, the writing of questions sets up a perfect stage for exam-studying later.
- Recite: Cover the note-taking column with a sheet of paper. Then, looking at the questions or cue-words in the question and cue column only, say aloud, in your own words, the answers to the questions, facts, or ideas indicated by the cue-words.
- Reflect: Reflect on the material by asking yourself questions, for example: “What’s the significance of these facts? What principle are they based on? How can I apply them? How do they fit in with what I already know? What’s beyond them?
- Review: Spend at least ten minutes every week reviewing all your previous notes. If you do, you’ll retain a great deal for current use, as well as, for the exam.

Welcome to Mathematics on NRSNG.
Having a foundational understanding of basic mathematics is essential to your success as a future nurse AND as a working nurse and beyond. Calculating medication dosages is an essential function of the nursing role, and it cannot be done without basic algebra. We will also help with other basic functions like working with fractions and percentages and graphing equations to help you be successful on any entrance exams it may require you to take (HESI, TEAS, GRE, etc.).
So what is covered? We have lessons on basic operations- which covers subtraction, addition, multiplication. Working with fractions–Numerator and denominator, Simplifying decimals & Percentages-Comparing, Using in math equations ratios & proportions-Nomenclature of ratios, Converting fraction to the ratio, Solving with proportions basic Algebra-Rules when using negative integers, Solving equations for a variable Graphing equations Slope-intercept form, Graphing linear equations and inequalities Basic statistics-Terminology, Solving problems and Basic Geometry which will cover definitions and use in math equations.
So dive into the lessons we have and get confident with your math skills. Now go out and be your best selves today and as always happy nursing.
