To clarify, my dd will start around $40k ish but the growth potential is amazing and I was told by a few RN’s not to worry (somehow I got the impression surgical tech was a kind of dead end career they corrected me and told me $90k+ is very possible within a short time frame if she chooses to certify in a lot of surgical types. She could hang out in the 40-65k range or she can continually earn more I breathed a sigh of relief cuz I thought it was a $40k for the indefinite future job and I think the new generation may need significantly more than that to support themselves.

that’s the only reason I know specifics

The local college here where people can get all kinds of 2 and 4 year degrees has a large variety of technical healthcare programs and requires NOTHING specific course wise. They just have to pass the entrance exams

My DH teaches at a small local college which our kids are allowed to attend for "free" (tuition we still have to pay books and fees) Math wise honestly worse case she might have to take a remedial math to bring her more up to speed if we can't quite get her there before that day comes.

That is amazing they can get free tuition Says the mom watching my dd pay cash for college Which I am happy she can do it but it's so much money still

If she can take remedial math and still get in, I'm not sure I'd worry I wouldn't quit trying to get here "there." BUT when a child is struggling sometimes all they need is time. I have heard of kids who really really struggled to get all the way through Alg 1, Geo and Alg 2 only to go off take remedial math and then really do well in the higher level college level math classes surpassing what teachers/parents though they were capable of. WHY? Because their brains don't stop developing till 25 and some kids just struggle in high school.

I have also heard about many students who take Alg 1 in 8th grade, Geometry 9th, Alg 2 Sophomore and stop. by the time they are taking the ACT (junior and senior year) they have forgotten a lotand end up w a lower ACT score for math even with math prep. Then they don't study for placement tests and get placed in lower than 100 level classes Not sure why they don't study but I've *heard* college is such a huge adjustment that one "easy/review" class is nice. So.. . . there are fairly full remedial math and english classes for the freshmen
