Online RN-BSN with no math?

  1. 0 Hi all,

    I am a working RN with an ADN degree. My ADN program only required pre-algebra and no upper level math courses.

    I am looking for an online RN-BSN that has no math requirement as a pre-req. I have all of my gen eds required for most BSN programs with the exception of mathematics, and I'm not eager to take a math class because, well, I pretty much suck at math. and I just don't want to take the time to complete a math class at my local junior college. I'm OK with taking a nursing related stats class as part of the curriculum.

    Not even sure such a beast exists because I've been looking for a long time, and I have searched the archives many many times and really found nothing. I thought I would post this just in case I missed something. Thanks!

    I took mine through Ferris State. You could possibly take a math class online if it is required though through them and generally BSN would require a statistics class, which means you have to take an algebra class (or whatever stat pre req they would need) before you take the stat class.
    Hope that helps.

    I took College Algebra through DeVry while enrolled with Chamberlain College of Nursing. I absolutely loved it because it was all finally making sense! I was one who was casually pursuing an ASN for years because when I reached the math/science portion, I usually dropped my pursuit and withdrew from college. But DeVry's setup with the course had me completing College Algebra with a B and I did it in 2 weeks!!! Of course, I was up at 5am (literally) working problems and was at it until 8pm. Also, I wouldn't receive my grade until the 8 week course had ended and I was still required to logon weekly just to show my presence in class. It was great! But I struggled with their statistics course and, you guessed it, withdrew from the college. I went to straighterline.com to get statistics behind me and am finally on the downhill slope of my BSN program, with 2 courses and one capstone to go. I'm happy now!

    You can (I'm pretty sure) complete the math portion of WGUs program through Straighterline before enrolling.

    The time you've spent looking for a program without math- you could have just taken the math and been working on the degree by now.

    Just do it - if you're smart enough to be a working RN, surely to goodness you'll be able to figure out math.

    Check out Grand Canyon--GCU.edu I don't have any special algebra classes. But one does have to take Statistics as part of the program!

    does straighterline part of WGU? or can you take math classes there and enroll somewhere else besides WGU? I have taken Math through my local community college and ended up dropping out.

    Oklahoma City University offers an online RN-to-BSN with no math or science requirements as long as you earned an ASN or diploma through a nursing program accredited by the NLNAC.

    I am at Grand Canyon University and they are not requiring me to take any math. Most programs have a math requirement as a prereq for statistics. I don't think this is the case with GCU.

    Oh well Oklahoma City requires 18 of their credits to be on campus, I can't go to Oklahoma to take 18 credits. And I was really excited about that school, but I have to do it all online.

    I am enrolled in WGU's online RN-to-BSN program. Although I have never taken a college level math course, they waived the requirement because of my associate degree in nursing (ASN), and they granted me 50 credits for possessing an active RN license.

    A health statistics course is a part of WGU's RN-to-BSN program, but it contains no math or calculations, just theoretical concepts, terminology and research design methods.

    There is a math test for WGU's entrance exam. I couldn't do those math problems. So that eliminated WGU for me.

    WGU recently eliminated the Readiness Assessment for prospective students who are already RNs. They made this decision last week. So you take no math test if you already have an RN license.
