So what is your question exactly? Science is a large part of nursing and you will have to deal with some math.

Yes of course LPN is worth it. No there are no shortcuts to Associates. You will have to complete your prerequisites first.

A PN program may be faster, however, there is a TON of information that is packed in the program; math and science is a HUGE part of the program; there are math and science concepts that are important to your practice that you have no way getting around.

You will have to reconcile whether you want to be a nurse or not; the bests thing you can do is talk to a few programs in the area, shadow both and come to a decision if math and science are deal beakers for you.

Best wishes.

You can obtain an associate of science in nursing degree in 2 years. Quite fast in the grand scheme of things. If you do not like math and science, nursing is not for you.
