Please help point a newbie in the right direction!
hi! I'm new here to the Nursing forum and looking for some advice. My daughter is currently a High School sophomore and desperately wants to be a nurse however she has a severe learning disability in math and I know that this will hinder her ability to not only get into a nursing program but also to excel in one should she gain admission. She is a straight-A student other than her barely-passing math grades, so it's not like she is a poor student overall. Also, her background is unusual and she has life experiences that rival many adults' so I'm hoping this makes her an interesting candidate to potential admissions officers. Are there any lists here on the forum of "less prestigious" or "easier admit" nursing schools, particularly in the NorthEast that possibly will have resources for LD and will look at the applicant in a holistic way rather than write her off due to math struggles? Advice appreciated greatly9 replies
