    So I've read about dosages, which involves conversion of units, what other math skills are needed for nursing?

    Thanks.

    Conversion of units and ratios are the most important besides that, very basic stuff like subtraction, multiplication and division etc

    Percentages and fractions are other things you use too. Being able to use maths skills like the ones mentioned in this thread are essential to being able to practice as a nurse. Some calculations can be quite complex depending on the environment you work in
