    Crissie, I had a TOUGH time with math as well. I started out at basic pre-algebra and I just took the final today. It wasnt that bad AT ALL ! I'm sure I got somewhere around a B or B+ in the class. I was so scared when I got started with it, but I did it anyway and it was just fine. I had friends help and I went to the math lab for extra help. Now, I am actually going to take college level math course next semester (Spring). I dont have to take it but, I want to. I withdrew once and got a D years ago. That was then and this is now. And I know I CAN DO it ! And if I can do it so can you, trust me ! ! !

    Thats funny I had to take that pre algebra course too. It was not bad though. Finding this site and having everyone give me advice really helped me make my decision. I registered today for my prereq's for nursing I should start the actual program next semester hopefullly.

    Welcome! Don't let the math scare ya. It's nothing compared to algebra, honest! Good luck meeting your dreams and goals!

    Honestly, I was happy to read on this site that not that much math is required to be a nurse. That really would have made me question my ability to go thru with all this. But, thank God there isnt a lot apparently. Hopefully, I will get my letter in March saying I got in. Til then, I have to wait. So, we'll have to see....
