Re: Statistics through the local U
The suffering will be over soon! :) Good luck to you. I still
don't know how anyone could do it with the EC test (the one without a
class). The text for my stats book is older than I am (it was the
required one, so it must be a goodie), so I had the joy of
calculating things by hand and with tables, if I was lucky. I don't
know how yours is, but hopefully it is a little more fun. I doubt
Let us know how you did, as I imagine there are a number of people
here wanting to go on to the BSN and have to face the stats monster.

- It's okay! Personally, I would recommend stats to where you had an
instructor at your disposal. I don't want to scare anyone off (plenty
of people have gotten through stats), but it does warrant some step-by-
step explanation. I even got a Stats for Dummies type of book that
still is pretty complicated. (I guess I'm a stats dummy!) My distance
class was pretty insane, but I had 16 ungraded assignments that
were "graded" with instructor feedback. My two tests were open book,
but they were really tough. I had to know where everything was in
those 300 pages of statistical textbook bliss in order to maximize my
time. I took this particular class because some of the nurse
practitioner programs (my ultimate goal) require upper-level stats or
else I might have thought about a community college or EC for stats.
With stats out of the way, when I get through the RN portion, I should
only have nursing courses to take for the BSN if I don't take an upper-
level writing class beforehand. I freaking love EC! (That was way
long and rambling--sorry!) Thanks for the well wishes for NC7!
