I just think chemistry is so pointless. Who cares about redox reactions or how to draw
People who insist on hating chemistry often cannot be convinced otherwise. These are often the very same people who stumbled through basic physiology because they thought that was stupid too. (Because of all the dumb chemistry involved).
Some of these people are in my nursing class and they are having no end to trouble with pathophys. They never get ABG analysis other than this word: "ROME." That is the sum total of their chemistry application to the subject - and you have to know more than that.
My cousin was once complaining about have to learn math and chemistry as she prepared for nursing school
. Her goal at the time (like every freaking pre-nursing student) was to be a CRNA.
I told her, "If you cannot be bothered to learn simple chemistry or algebra, I don't want you near any life threatening drug or any drug administration equipment used on me." Sure you can find concepts you'll never use, but that doesn't mean learning them is a waste of your time. If you cannot see this, I don't want you as my nurse.
In general, if you are going to do something, do your best at it. You might find yourself needing it some day.
