I have a question or two. I have been reading the posts. I think it was Nilopec that referred to another post from last year. I believe he stated that sciences had to be strong.
I interviewed an then talked with a director and stated that the chemistry that you have in the nursing education foundation is usually enough to succeed in school.
I wondering if you feel that there should be more science.
I was told that the organic chemistry you receive in anesthetist school is structured for the art of nurse anesthetist. Where as the organic chemistry course is broad spectrum chemistry for all majors, ie engineering, teaching and others.
I have the general chemistry one. Do you recommend going on and doing more sciences ie inorganic & organic sciences? Do you recommend more biology courses and which ones. How much math ie calculus?
For those of you have been accepted what did you application look like? How much math, how much science and types and any other things that you can think of. I understand the GPA, and high GREs. And larger ICU experience that provides aggressive froms of care and treatment variables. Understanding hemodynamics is a positive factor. I believe someone mentioned know the names, of drugs as well as generic names is important.
If anyone can validate or reject these above ideas, please add your two cents worth. Kevin, wntermute, nilepoc and BRobinson and anyothers that can shed a light on this subject matter, please do.
I call this making a road map to succeesful applicant acceptance.
Setting the standards
