Yes! As a matter of fact, organic chem and biochem are prerequisites on most nurse anesthesia programs!

Its different in a way that most nursing schools only require a semester of general chemistry. Unless things have changed, I don't remember nursing schools requiring ochem or biochem. However, most anesthesia programs only require introductory ochem or biochem so as long as you get a semester of each, you're good.
