I'm starting to figure out where I want to apply for nursing school (in CA) so I can get all the prereqs done beforehand. I've noticed that they vary a bit from school to school but all require things like A&P, micro, stats, psych, sociology, human development, chem, bio, etc.
I was really interested in Cal State Hayward for the location and program, but a quick glance at their website turned me off. They require O-chem as a prereq!!
I took chem my first semester in college and hated it (so I switched from Biology major to Spanish). In order to take O-chem I'd have to do another semester of general chemistry beforehand. Yuck! CSU Hayward is the only place I have ever seen an o-chem requirement. Has anyone else seen that? PLEASE tell me I don't have to take o-chem! :chair:
I had to have it as a pre-req, even 25 years ago.

Does the "o" stand for organic chem?
I had a year of organic chemistry in my diploma program 20 years ago ...
I don't think organic is required in some California ADN programs, but I do think it's required or a top preference for acceptance into some BSN programs. But I haven't seen any ADN programs in my area require it.
Here's a complete list of California nursing programs with links to all of the school websites. That way you can find out for sure.
