You might be able to get into a community college where you won't pay 5k per semester but it will still be tons of math, science, homework, clinicals, etc. There's just no way around it.
While you are on wait list and chances are good you will wait to get into a cc nursing school I would get tutoring help in math if that is your weak point. Taking an additional class in this area could help as well.

Community college usually costs less...
If it was too easy, you wouldn't be getting the training and education you NEED to have to be an RN.
- 2Dec 8, '08 by MikeyJWhen you find an easy nursing school, let me know...
And when you find that "easy" nursing school, you better check out how many students are passing their NCLEX licensing exams.
There are schools that make it easier on their students to pass but in the end when they need to pass the NCLEX to become an RN, they have a tough time with it.
- 3Dec 8, '08 by noellelynnMaybe you could consider looking into an LPN program rather than the RN route for the time being. This type of program is not college class oriented-so if you are worried a lot about math, etc. then maybe this program would better suit you (at least for the time being) Most LPN programs are cheaper than RN programs (unless you are talking private schools) but most offered at technical schools are fairly inexpensive. I'm currently in one now, and it's rougly 4000 for the whole program. I'd like to pursue the RN route someday but for now this suits me best. I have a four year undergraduate degree and have taken micro, A&P etc. at the college and community college level and they are difficult. Not saying LPN will be easy, of course not, but might be a better way to start out if you are concerned about RN school being too difficult. I personally think it'd be easier to learn as an LPN and get that really down pat and then move into a RN program with at least a base nursing knowledge gained from LPN school. Just a thought! Good Luck to you!:icon_roll
