This is my last science class. I've already done A&P 1 and 2, micro, and nutrition.. The chem covered in A&P I didnt go as in depth as this.
1. If you are APPLYING for Nursing School, this is NOT your last science class...
2. I know the "CHEM" covered in the other classes didn't go into as much depth, but I think you are missing the point on this one. For instance, if you understand Gen Chem by the end of the class, you will be able to calculate everything throughout your nursing program (which you are applying for) without needing to memorize formulas. You will understand metabolism, concentration gradients, Gibbs Free Energy, electrolyte deficiency, exothermic processes, the list goes on and on.
I'm not saying that all of your classes will have in depth chemistry, I'm saying that if you learn chemistry really well, all of your classes will be easier.
Most students don't realize how much they see Gen Chem over and over again. Usually it's because they can't recognize it in applied topics.
Regardless, if you are about to start a Nursing Program, this isn't your last science class.
