    I've done all my ADN pre requirements for a community college program. However, chemistry was not a requirement. I've been an NA for more than 6 years. I am currently a float pool NA to floors such as ER (PCT), Gen Surg, Pulm/Renal, BHS, Oncology, ortho etc. I've assited in codes in ICU, SDU and ER. At my hospital, im one of the few NAs/PCTs that is constantly requested for ER,ICU, SDU, and Med Tele. Yet, I feel incompetent. Once I was done with my pre requirements, I applied to an ADN program. I didnt thought they would accept me; yet, they did accept me. Now, I am truly afraid because i dont feel that im equally smart as the other applicants. I have not taken Chemistry since it was not a requirement. My question is : what can I do so I do not fail. What things should I review to be competent. Are there any chemistry topics I should familiarize to succeed. Should i just decline my invitation. The pre requirements I took where : physiology anatomy microbiology physiology sociology ENGLISH MATH And a Gen Ed classes. Thank you for your time.

    From the bottom of my heart, I am really moved by how quickly I got responses, and how many of you were willing to share your advice. The program I applied is at a community college. I live in California were community college programs are extremely competitive to get in. For some reason, I guess I got lucky and got in. I didnt expect this opportunity to present so soon since it was my first school and program to ever apply. Opportunities like this do not come easy, nor repeat again. So eventhough Im still insecure as my education is not as awesome as my other classmates, I've accepted my invitation. Thank you all for being so awesome and amazing. I am looking foward to the day where I can be part of this amazing community. Stay Awesome

    Thank you for taking your time to respond. I apprecite the importance of chemistry as how relevant it is to the nursing field. In general, rather than trying to find out if I can get away without knowing chemistry, I was searching if I was gonna be able to pass nursing school without yet having completed gen chemistry. You see, the ADN program I applied for does not require chem, yet it is a requirement for the bridge program to BSN. Then, I completely understand the chemistry is neccessary for a more detailed undertanding of certain and important aspects of nursing. Taking your advice into consideration, I will try to get familiar with chemistry before my program begins. Eventually, I will take chemistry as soon as possible. Thank you so much for taking your time.

    You got no idea how much I needed your advice. I will take your advice and review the chapters related to chemistry in my physiology, anatomy and microbiology textbooks. You are absolutely right. You notice that my fear was all about failing, so you redirected me to focus on what I can do, and get ready for this challenge. Although Im ready to take this challenge , I appreciate it will be difficult. Honestly, thank you for taking your time to read and reply to this post since you gave me courage and motivated me to take the bull by the horns. Thank you
