Students specializing in the field of nursing will explore applied statistics at an introductory level. The focus is on developing the conceptual aspects of the subject rather than the mathematical foundations and assumes no prerequisite except elementary algebra. Topics include descriptive statistics, probability, the normal, t-, chi-square and F-distributions, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, correlation, and regression. Applications are directed towards health and biological studies.
