    You'll need algebra to take the stats class. At least in my school you did even though the stats was labeled as a psych course

    I did not need to take algebra prior to being enrolled in WGU's probability and statistics course. Many online RN-to-BSN programs have dropped the algebra requirement as it serves more of a gatekeeper function than any other college class in existence.

    Pinkpinstripes, did you ever end up going to WGU? If so, details on your experience there please? 🤓

    Capella University RN-BSN does not require statistics. They lump math and science into one core, so you could essentially take all science classes with no math.

    Nrsbettyo, No I chickened out. I bought 2 stats review books and I just couldn't understand those so I didn't want to waste a bunch of money as WGU makes you pay a whole semester at a time.

    so its been awhile since anyone posted im wondering if there are any updates. I have all but the last 3 classes from UTA and stats is keeping me from taking research then capstone. I chose UTA because they didn't require intro chemistry but I did stats twice online with no luck. I get so far and then im lost. Area there any programs that have a very simple no math stats or a very simple intro chem. I still want my BSN but stats is such a biggggg headache

    Ameriacan Sentinel has no math, I talked to the admissions person at length, Lisa. That is where I will be going.

    I know this thread is probably dead but I need updates. Did any of these schools require Statistics 1040? That class is literally going to keep me from my BSN if I am forced to take it.

    Excelsior's Stats for healthcare professionals was fairly easy, I got an A. It was online but not difficult.

    American Sentinel lets you substitute a science course for the stats. They are CCNE accredited.

    Thank you both so much. I'm better at science than I ever will be at math.
