Dear Donna,

You could call me a professional student. I have taken courses to complete my BSN. Are there any nursing schools that do not require statistics?

Dear Donna replies:

Dear Professional Student,

I don’t know if there any BSN programs that do not require statistics, but I will tell you that everyone dreads it. I was so fearful of it in undergraduate school, but everyone, including me, manages to muddle through. If you don’t get obsessed with getting a perfect grade and do the best you can, you’ll be able to get through it. If necessary, your instructor, fellow students and even tutors can help you. Where there is a will there always is a way. It’s always good to face the things you fear most — it builds character, confidence and gives you a sense of accomplishment. If you want that BSN, just bite the bullet and do whatever it takes to get it over with. I guarantee you’ll live to talk about it.

Florence Nightingale had this to say about statistics: “To understand God’s thoughts we must study statistics, for these are the measure of his purpose.”

    North Dakota State Univ. in Fargo, N.D. does not list a statistics course for an R.N. to BSN degree. Neither does Waldorf University in Forest City, Iowa for an R.N. to BSN degree. Both schools have ample info on their websites, and a stats requirement is not listed in the course curriculum. Of course, if you can afford the tuition, neither does Oklahoma City University for their R.N. to BSN degree program. I hope this helps.
