View Full Version : Chemistry question
10-12-2006, 09:26 AM
I'll be finishing my BSN this year and will have two options with Chemistry. I took chemistry many years ago but the program I am in now will not transfer it because it was done in an out of state college which was then on the "quarter" system rather than the "semester" system like todays world. I will have to either repeat Chemistry (although I had an A in it) or I can take the challenge exam, which if I pass it will then count. I am prepared to challenge however I am wondering in respect to having transcripts that will be scrutinized by the anesthesia program I will be applying to, should I re-take it again so I have a "grade" to be looked at or will a challenge exam credit be okay? I will also need to be taking Organic chemistry (pre req for the CRNA program). Advice from anyone who can offer it is appreciated!

call the schools you want to apply to and ask their opinion, our opinions dont count in the long run. personally, i would take the test, and not take the class again.

I would take biochem and get an 'A' to have a recent chemistry and make yourself a more competitive applicant.

The schools you apply to will see all of your grades. You will have to send them your transcripts from your other schools. If you are ready to challenege the test I would challenge it. But like Catcolalex said, our opion doesn't matter. How long has it been since you took your chemistry?

I took it in 1995ish, I believe. Yes, exactly, they'll see all of the grades, and thats why I was thinking to challenge it to get it BSN requirement satisfied, and then the schools I apply to will see the old transcript with the "A", plus the current work. I could save myself some time and take the Organic Chem. Meanwhile, I will call the school and see what their ultimate idea would be.
Thanks for your help!
