Associate in Applied Science Degree - Nursing Course Sequence

The Associate in Applied Science Nursing (AASN) Degree at Morton College does not require any mathematics to complete. However, most Bachelors of Science Nursing (BSN) degrees do require statistics to complete.

Therefore, if you do plan to complete a BSN degree you will need to take MAT 141 Statistics

The length of a course sequence is determined by the placement of the student. Students are placed based on their high school math course results, college or dual credit math course results, ACT or SAT scores, or their score on a placement test.

Click on the placement option below that sounds most like you or the placement you have already received to see the list of classes you will need to take.

Placement Option 1

This placement option is for students:

  • who have been placed into MAT 080 -OR-
  • who did not receive Cs or better in their final math class in high school -OR-
  • who have not taken a math class in 5 or more years and do not use math on a regular basis.

Students at this placement level need a refresher of math fundamentals, such as, positive and negative numbers, fractions, decimals, and operations on these numbers.

Placement Option 2

This placement option is for students:

  • who have been placed into MAT 098 -OR-
  • who received Cs in their final math class in high school -OR-
  • who have not taken a math class in 5 or more years but use math on a somewhat regular basis.

Students at this placement level have basic math skills but need a refresher of basic algebra, such as, solving linear equations and inequalities and performing operations on polynomials.

Placement Option 3

This placement option is for students:

  • who have been placed into MAT 141 or higher -OR-
  • who received Bs in their final math class in high school -OR-
  • who have not taken a math class in 5 or more years but use math on a regular basis.

Students at this placement level have basic algebra skills but need a refresher of more complicated algebra skills, such as factoring polynomials and performing operations on rational and radical expressions.

Developmental Education Option 1

This option is for students who did not receive Cs or better in their high school junior and senior year classes or have been out of school for a number of years and do not have a strong math background. These are students who have been placed into MAT 080.
