    I know this thread is a bit old but I just wanted to say it is a FALSE idea that UR nurses make less than hospital nurses. Check salary.com and you will see they actually make a bit more. I am leaving a hospital position for a UR position (I have no UR experiene) and am getting a $5K annual increase.

    Dear raininghere : If you want to get any respect and know what the hell YOU are talking about , please do a little research before you post . " Nursing is one of the the only health care professions that does not require a masters degree " is absurd . What about Respiratory Therapist , CNA , LPN , OR Tech , Registered Nurse Associates Degree , X-Ray Tech , Wound Care etc..... I am not debating the fact that chemistry is a relevant , essential part of nursing , but your high and mighty BSN attitude is much more ignorant and harmful to the nursing profession than any weakness in chemistry .
    Most of them would be considered paraprofessionals except for the RN, maaybe the RT. And WC is a nursing specialty so I'm confused as to why that's listed..

    And I agree with everyone. As a professional, it is beneficial to have a liberal educational background. As a nurse, chemistry is so necessary. Acid-base balance, elyte imbalances, muscle contractions, principles of diffusion in relation to cell function, respiration, and elytes, kidney function, and pharm is basically a branch of chem. Come on. How are you going to explain to a patient what's going on in their body if you don't know?
