Do I really have to be good in math if I become a teacher or a nurse?

Don't know about a teacher.

For an RN you don't have to be super great. Conversions are pretty important and it seems imo, that people who go into nursing has the most trouble with them. You have to take basic college math too though.

Nope. You just have to like what you teach! If you are a secondary teacher you don't need to teach math at all. Elementary teachers do but it's not hard. I'm not a math expert and I middle through.

I've done accounting and financial analysis for years--and I suck at math.  That's what calculators are for :)

I would think no, unless you're a math teacher...obviously.

Being a teacher, not really unless it was math. Being a nurse I would say yes just for the fact that you will have to deal with medication dosege etc.
