I guess I might just wait and take chem this fall and bio this winter. Oh, the life of a working mother of 3 young ones! I feel like the time when I can apply for the program will never come!! ugh. Why the hell did I wait till I was 31 to decide to what my career will be?!
Where I live most schools do not require chemistry. My only guess is because we take it in high school and A&P touches on the chemistry we need to know!? I do find it weird though that chemistry is not required. If I could go back I would take it simply because I would enjoy it, but I took physics instead...
No worries, you can take Bio without having Chem first. I think Chem is helpful before taking Micro (understanding Kreb's cycle) or A&P (acid-base balance, action potentials, etc.). I'd take Bio this summer and then do Chem in the fall. I wouldn't try to cram Chem into a short summer session. It was hard enough in a regular 16 week semester!!!!
I haven't taken gen bio yet, but already took chem, A&P 2 and micro. And I start my nursing classes in the fall. The gen bio class is not a nursing core pre req at my school. I'll take it when it's available in between.
