I think algebra is only needed when you're applying to a BSN program. I'm in an ADN program and we had to take "Math for Meds" which is basic math, fractions, some conversions. There was some algebra and geometry on the NLN-RN entrance exam. I'm a first semester RN student and haven't come across any need for algebra.
