nursing specialties that fullfill interest in sciences

I'm interested in nursing, and I am also interested in science too. Sure, I've taken all of the nursing science pre-requisites, but I want to learn a lot more science. Are there any nursing specialty schools that have a heavy science curriculum? CRNA school maybe? Thanks in advance.

All nursing programs have a heavy science focus... in nursing school, I took 2 semesters of anatomy and physiology, 1 semester of chemistry, 1 semester of microbiology, 1 semester of pathophysiology, 1 semester of pharmacology in addition to all the specialty nursing classes- Adult health/med surg, Maternity, Pediatrics, Psych, Community Health... all of these classes integrate the knowledge you've gained in A&P, micro, chem and patho. You need a strong science basis to make it through nursing school.

CRNA programs require critical care nursing experience.

You might want to look into your options of double-majoring or minoring in a science related field. Taking a few extra elective science courses throughout your college years will help you get the extra knowledge that you're looking for, and you'll be able to be fairly selective about the courses that you take.

As the PP mentioned, all nursing programs have focus heavily on science, and they are pretty uniform in their requirements. So if you're looking to take more science-related courses, elective classes (even over the summer) are probably the best way to go.

Sorry, this is unrelated to the post/discussion.... but since I am a new member I can't private message... But I'm pretty sure you were my preceptor in the PICU this past semester. I just graduated from Felician College.... PM me... Ashley PICU RN
