    I registered at Frontier Nursing University as a non-matriculating student and took Statistics (Nursing 404) online. I was so afraid that I would be the first student at FNU to fail the Stats class. Instead, I got an "A!" The class was difficult at first (largely because the information was new to me and I was, as I said, anxiety-ridden about it) but it got easier as I went along. There were 5 modules, each with an open-book graded assignment (i.e., a quiz) with no time limit for completion once the quiz started. There were no formulas to memorize; instead, the statistical work centered on uses of the well-known SPSS computer program. There was also an opportunity for an application to a clinical situation--I got worried about this, too, but as it turned out it was key to really understanding and applying the learning. The final quiz was not open book but some notes were allowed (there are specific criteria for notes for the final exam). I have to say that this was one of the best classes I have ever taken and I was genuinely sorry when it was over. Highly recommend that you consider this route to a Statistics class that is specific for nurses and carries a Nursing academic designation (rather than a math or social science designation, if that's important to the program to which you are applying). It was a little pricey out-of-pocket but ended up being worth every last penny. My peers seemed to feel mostly the same way.

    Do you mind stating your out of pocket costs? Or you can PM me. Thanks.
