I would like to find out from nursing students if they feel that chemistry is a necessary pre-req to do well in nursing school
or on the TEAVs?
My school of choice does not require it as a pre-req, but they do require students to take biochemistry within the nursing program.
I was planning to take chemistry for understanding chemistry questions on the TEAVs since I have no chemistry experience other than what I have learned in cellular biology.
Do you use chemistry very much in nursing school? Is it needed to do well on the TEAVs, or could I do some basic home study and khanacademy.org for chemistry?
If I don't have to take it I can apply for nursing school in the spring of 2014, otherwise I have to wait until fall 2014.

That is what I was thinking too - that the benefit of chemistry is to learn dimensional analysis, which would be the focus of my home study besides basic chemistry!
