Has anyone ever taken a course called Statistics? It's pre-required for the nursing school
I want, so I signed up for it at my community college. But its a math course. I'm not sure if I'm taking the right Statistics course. I was looking around at other nursing schools
and some had courses called "Nutrition and Statistics" so now I'm wondering if I just about wasted my money getting into a class that serves me no purpose. I asked the college recruiter but it's been a few days since I asked and I still have no response. Anyone got any ideas?

Talking to a counselor would be the best bet to find out if your class will transfer smoothly as a prerequesite course. I also recommend looking at assist.org, which will usually give you a good idea if your course will transfer accordingly. Also, the university of your nursing school may also have a website that will indicate equivalency in courses from the community colleges--so you may want to check around their website to see if they have that.
From my experience because I'm transfering from a community college too, the university would accept any of the following statistics courses: a math class ("Elementary Statistics"), a psychology class ("Behavioral Science Statistics"), or even a biology class ("Biological Statistics"). Even though they all deal with seemingly different subjects, statistics is a science that is approached the same way, no matter what the subject matter is. It is dry material, and many people in my class have to kick themselves to stay awake. But I like numbers, so I like it, and I'm also getting an A so far.
