While chemistry may not seem relevant to nursing, it’s more applicable than you might think. A nurse must understand the actions and effects of the medication she is providing, as well as potential interactions that can occur with other medications or foods. Having a solid foundation in chemistry is key to understanding how certain drugs interact, which directly affects patient outcomes. Advancing your career into more specialized fields will require you to possess not only an understanding of basic chemistry, but perhaps organic or physical chemistry as well.
