Do you need a good chemistry base to function well as a nurse anesthetist: ABSOLUTELY.
*** Thanks very much. That is exactly what I wanted to know. In that case I will enroll in a gen. chem class. (I already have bio chem).
Hopefully you are becoming a CRNA for all the right reasons.
*** I think I am.
Please understand you have a person's life in your hands and understanding your craft is of the utmost importance.
*** Yes I understand. Should I ever get accepted into CRNA school and graduate it will not be the first time I held others lives in my hands. 4 years as a medic in the infantry assured that.
Would you like it if your anesthesia provider ignored the chemistry of anesthetic gases and how they affect your body?
*** No I would not. Thanks for your responce and advice. If I need it to be a good provider then I will get it.[/QUOTE]
i wouldn't do gen. chem.. waste of time, unless it's been a decade since last.. more or less would be just a review...
organic chem and biochem are what it's all about, well, biochem more so...
so, since u have biochem, take org.chem. it will help as well, but....
since u have biochem, some school may take that over orgo..
check it out.. save urself some time and money...
