Hello all! I just have a quick question or two for you regarding the Orgo class that's required by what seems to be most CRNA programs. I'm currently taking it, and while even though we've only had 1 test thus far, I'm... Read More

    really? so you guys are taking almost 2 years of lower division chemistry classes? i went to glendale community college in california and there is such a class, surprisingly. good luck.
    Yeah here in western WA whether at comm college or univ that is the sequence. a year to get into o-chem, another year to get in biochem. I looked at all the colleges around me and there were no other courses avail-no intro courses or double courses where they are called o-chem/biochem that I see other people talk about here. But o-chem would have been undoable without all that gen chem, at least here...kinda sad I didn't get to finish the sequence and take biochem, but looking at taking vcu's medicinal chem course that is distance learn...

    Some programs allow you to take any chem (comm. college) before starting classes. Check with the school your are applying for and ask about what chem. is required. Once I was accepted into the program, I took a biochem class. The only stipulation was that I got a 'C' or better in any kind of college level chemistry course.

    That will take a long time! By the time you are done, you will be pre-med. Good luck!!

    A "B" in organic chemistry is nothing to scoff at. Just the fact that you took it will be considered when you apply. If you can retain some of the info and relate it to anesthesia during your interview, you'll probably get in for sure. I felt it was well worth it to take orgo 1&2 and biochem before starting anesthesia school. It helps when you're trying to think of the pharmacology if lipid vs water soluble medications and the different compartment models.
