The main pre-reqs for the nursing program are that you need to have taken Algebra, Biology and Chemistry in HS or a college equivalent, all with a "C" or higher. I took Biology with a "C" and I am taking Chemistry now.. (I quit HS a few weeks into the 11th grade but received a GED later... I wish someone would have kicked me in the butt)
Okay here is the situation..... I took Algebra I part I and received a "D" and then I took Algebra I part II and received a "C". I did take a Math 120 when I received my Associates in Office Systems Tech but it was a math that went over algebra, geometry, stats, etc. Not a specific algebra class.
I do not know how the nursing department is going to look at my average for Algebra since I received a "D" and "C".. Even if they do say that they would average that out to a low "C" and leave it at that, should I take Algebra anyway to give me that extra boost I may need? I know that I will struggle through it and would hate to do that but if it is so important to my ability as a nurse, I would do it anyway.....
Tell me what you think?
Thank you so much...

YOU MUST HAVE A KNOWLEDGE OF MATH TO BE A NURSE.
YOU COULD FIND THAT A DOCTOR WROTE AN ORDER THAT
WAS WAY OUT OF LINE. IT WOULD BE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY
TO BRING IT TO HIS/HER ATTENTION. MISTAKES ARE MADE ALL
THE TIME. DOCTORS ARE NOT INFALLIBLE
TAKE A COURSE THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL TO YOUR GAINING ADMISSION TO A NURSING SCHOOL. NURSING SCHOOLS DO NOT WANT TO TURN OUT PEOPLE WHO CANNOT ADD, SUBTRACT, READ OR WRITE PROPERLY. IT DOESN'T LOOK GOOD FOR THE SCHOOL.
GOOD LUCK !!!
