You sound just like me a year ago. I was a stay at home mom for almost 8 years before deciding to go back to school for nursing. I got my GED at 16 and like you I never took algebra, bio or chm. I had to start at the bottom with a basic math class and work my way up. Its beena little over a year since I started and I am waiting on my last transcript to come in so I can mail my NS application. I took a lot of hard work. Don't under estimate what sound like simple class like the BIO or Algebra, they require a lot of study time. I don't recommend online classes, some can be hard to navigate even for those who have not been out of school for a while. I swear I could have made that same post a year ago, so you are not alone. Keep us posted!
