    ah lucky OP, you said its a legit program and no chemistry, so certainly I won't complain, one less class is one class. The program I am at required Inorganic biochemistry-while not as hard as the "real" chemistry that science majors take, it was still chem none the less. What I see in regards to chemistry in nursing programs- most do require some sort of chemistry-that "sort" of chemistry is a often a nursing version or a somewhat easier version of the standard chemistry that bio, chem, physics, etc... majors take. At the same time there are some schools that forgo chemistry all together-

    I'm in the southeast, and only about half the BSN programs here require Chem. Of the ones that do, 2 semesters of Chem are required. Seems like a pretty big knowledge disparity among graduate nurses. Very odd. None of the ADN programs require it that I am aware of.
