Organic Chem...Intro?

  1. 0 I know it seems to vary from program to program but would anyone recommend taking an intro/survey of organic/bio chem class? Does anyone have any knowledge of whether this would satisfy CRNA school requirements. My BSN degree did not include any chemistry classes, though i have taken some basic college chem in the past. In researching O-Chem classes im finding them to be varied to some extent, some colleges seem to offer a survey or into course organic course, in which no other pre-req's are necessary. However, on the other hand i have noticed that the typical Organic chem 1 and 2 seem to require 2 semesters or so of general chem to even take the class.

    So depending on how my current classes transfer, worst case scenario i would end having to take as much as 3 semesters of chemistry in order to have just one Organic chem class under my belt.

    Anyone else in a similar situation? I know some schools do not require any chem at all. Has anyone gotten away with the intro or survey classes? Or do i just need to buckle down for the next year and a half an take these silly classes?

    Im also working full time, plus trying to study for the GRE and CCRN...

    Thanks everyone

    New England offers biochem online. It's 2500 for the class, no prereqs. They give you an entire year to finish it. Self-paced learning that fulfills the req for just about every program.

    Hi Hartley,
    I was wondering the same thing. Something that I did find was that as long as it met the org or biochem requirement for the school, then it's good. But I'm still keeping my tabs open.
