Oh, and the course I'd recommend for the nursing program is NOT statistics but a good algebra course instead (some schools require statistics but it doesn't make sense to me when calculation of dosage is pretty much all algebra).
This was a point I was getting ready to make....you HAVE to have that good foundation of basic algebra to get through a nursing program and be a safe nurse for your patients.
If you need the higher grade because it is actually keeping you from getting accepted in to a program, then retake the college algebra if you honestly think you can do better.
If the higher grade isn't the problem, then see about taking a lower-level algebra to get caught up in the basics. It truly is some very BASIC algebra concepts we're using, but you have understand how to use them. Get a good nursing dosage math book to review. We use Calculate with Confidence
, but I have seen other books listed in these threads.
Statistics is a course you usually need for a BSN, or higher, program. Unless that's also a requirement where you're applying, I wouldn't concern myself with that class at this time.
