    my college wants us to do the 3 quarter allied health chem sequence concurrent with the 3 quarter a&p and then go on to micro. (and at the same time take some other classes - nutrition, psych, soc - whatever you need)

    Personally, I took Micro and A&P before I ever took chem....Did just fine w/both courses not having had chem....Chem is a doosey, though, especially organic chem. Good luck to you!

    My college recommends that Chem for Allied Health Professionals be completed prior to Microbiology and Physiology, but doesn't require it.

    I need to take Anat/Physio/Micro before I can be placed on the waiting list and taking the Chem course means it will take a year before I can get myself on the waiting list (which is a year long itself, at the moment), meaning it would take 4 years to get an AA in nursing (I've completed all my other GE/Nursing prereqs).

    Did any of you take the three classes above without taking a Chem course first? If any of you did take Chem first, did you find it imperative/highly useful in your A&P/Micro courses?

    Thanks for your help - I've already learned so much from this board!!!

    We have to take it prior to starting the program. A lot of chemistry is used in other classes.
    I would try to take it.
    good luck!
