what are the "sciences"?

Posted

I'm trying to figure out my science GPA but I'm kinda confused. Which particular classes are actually considered sciences? More specifically, which classes are sciences that CRNA schools actually look at? If you have other sciences that aren't related, does that count as part of your "science" GPA? What about math courses?

Calculus

Statistics

Pharmacology

Physics

Chemistry

A&P

Microbiology

Psychology

Nutrition

Others?

Which of these count and which don't? Also, does it matter what kind of school you take the classes at (ie a big university vs a small private technical college)??? Thanks...

Hi Philip,

short of calling the schools you are interested in and asking them I don't know how you can find out for sure.

Classes that definitely will be part of your science GPA are:

Chemistry

Physics,

A & P

Microbiology

Classes in the grey area are:

Psychology

Nutrition

maybe Pharmacology

I'm not positive about the maths for CRNA school, but I do know that medical schools count any math courses as part of the science gpa. Also, (if they are like med schools) if classes fall in the area of math/science and you already took them, the grades will be part of the science GPA whether the class is required for your program or not.
