importance of prereq's???

  1. 0
    Applied for CRNA school last year, got put on the waiting list. Hadn't heard anything until 2 days ago. Someone must have dropped out and now I am accepted and can start in June (2 months!!!)

    How important are the prereq classes? Do they expect you to have a backround in those classes from 8 years ago? I don't remember anything from those courses.

    I was planning on taking a chemistry class as a refresher or biochem (which I have never taken) if I got in. Now with 2 months I have no time to do that or prepare.

    Need some advice from someone that has started taking th classess?

    Don't have an answer for you since my program starts in June as well (actually late May). But, I am taking a few non-anesthesia classes early and can share my thoughts on them...I am currently taking Applied Pharmacology and Research. I was nervous about Applied Pharmacology because I haven't had Pharm for quite a while, and I also had them waive a pre-req of Graduate Pathophysiology just so I could take the course. With that said, the Applied Pharmacology class is not nearly as hard as I thought it would be. I have not worked very hard at it at all and have an "A" in the class thus far. The final is tomorrow, so we will see how it goes! I think you will be surprised at how much you still know (even from classes you took many years ago).

    Since our program start dates are so close I was wondering which program you are going to attend? Just curious I guess!
