ASBN Programs - page 2
I'm looking into what programs I will be applying to for next year. I want to do an ASBN but need a program that doesn't require chemistry as a pre req. Any suggestions for good programs?... Read More

Do you really want to be in a program that doesn't care if you have all the background knowledge you NEED to do well in your courses?
I hope that helps. Good luck!

I will say many of the students in my program who have the A's and high B's took chem or advanced chem. especially pharmacology when you get in depth.
