    Elena,

    Welcome to Allnurses! Can't answer your question specifically, but I know someone will be along soon who can. Good luck to you.

    Welcome.

    I'm sure you can become a CNA, I'm not sure about LPN.

    Perhaps you should start with some remedial math courses and work your way up to Algerbra. Any good school has tutors. Many people have a fear of math, and all they need to do is conquer that fear.

    Good luck.

    Welcome to allnurses.com. If you reeeaaaly want to be a nurse, and Math is required, you gotta do what you gotta do. And if tutoring is what it takes.... And most schools (I know in my area, for one) do require student nurses to be CNA's befor starting the actual Nursing curriculum.

    Perhaps you can start school when your kids are in school?

    It Will Be Years Before My Kids Are In School ; I Have A One Year Old And A Two Year Old . I Would Like To Be A Nurse , Yeah , But For Personal Enjoyment Not For The " Salaries " . I Can't Believe How Low Nurses Are Paid . I Would Have To Totally Sacrifice My Career That I Have Now , Which Pays Me In The 50 ' S , To Spend Time On Tutors , Just So I Can Master All The Algebra Courses .it's Not An Option , I Have Too Much Going On , Plus I Travel Overseas Often Also .
    My " Original Question " Was To Find Out If There Was A Program Available Without All The Algebra Courses , Not If I Should Or Not Invest Time In Tutors . I Already Knew That Whole Chapter . . .
