Biochem isn't required, but it's an elective. It wasn't required for my ADN, but I do know a lot of CRNA programs require it. My instructor actually went to CSUDH and he said that you can test out of a couple of the courses. I also hear if you're good at typing essays, the program is nowhere near as difficult as your ADN. If you take a couple of courses in the summer, you can finish in 3 semesters. You can finish in 2 semesters if you REALLY load up on units (my instructor did this).
Ohio University also appeals to me because it's a big school, and you can finish up your BSN in 55 weeks, taking the same amount of courses as CSUDH in 5 week increments. They also allow you to double up on courses, which would allow you to finish up in 55 weeks if you still need some of the GE courses (I need nutrition and cultural anthropology). OU also allows you to make payments on your tuition whereas CSUDH wants all 2600 up front prior to the start of the semester. Both programs com out to roughly the same price, but OU's payment plan is a little more affordable. I would have to take a loan out for CSUDH.
Another plus of CSUDH is their FNP program. If you're admitted to their school of graduate nursing (preference is given to their grads), the first courses you take are graduate level are pathophysiology and pharmacology. You can then choose the FNP role option, or another option. The plus of this is CRNA schools
give HUGE preference to those who succeed in grad level patho and pharm.
Keep me updated if you find out any other info.
