Chemistry for Allied Health Professions (CHEM150) requires eight weekends to complete. The accelerated chemistry classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00am to 6:00pm.
(5 Semester Units, includes lab)

This 5-unit semester equivalent chemistry course, designed for students majoring in health sciences professions, and in particular Nursing, combines the fundamentals of organic chemistry and biochemistry as applied to the health professions. The course is focused on the chemistry of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen containing compounds and examines the structures, properties, nomenclature, reactivity and, in some cases, synthesis of simple organic molecules. The structures and functions of biological macromolecules and common biochemical pathways are also examined as well as their relationship to human health. Introductory general chemistry is a prerequisite for students who will take the course. This course is designed to meet the requirements for pre-nursing curricula and other Allied Health professions majors.
