Hello!

I would like to complete a statistics course prior to applying for CNS programs and have a few questions:

1. What online statistics course did you complete that qualified as a prerequisite for a MSN program?

2. How much did it cost?

3. Would you recommend that course?

4. When applying for CNS programs, were any other courses required as prerequisites bedsides statistics?

Thank you so much!

My experience has been that the CNS programs are accepting of a community college stats course. However, the best advice I can give you is to contact the actual CNS program(s) you are applying to to make sure what they will accept.

I did not do an online class, but I think my CC offered stats in an online option.

A friend of mine took her stats online from the university she is getting her NP at -- so that is another sure way it will be accepted.

My CNS program required grad level stats.

Grad level stats is built into my CNS program as well, but you have to have a recent undergrad stats to get into the program.
