Nursing in Chemistry

Nursing programs feature different chemistry courses, including biochemistry, pharmacology, general level chemistry and organic chemistry. All of these courses play an important role in helping nurses understand different organic compounds, chemical equations, chemical reactions and chemical processes. An individual can major in one course or can combine two or more. Therefore, chemistry knowledge allows nurses to understand the effects of different medicines when used alone or in combination with others.

A deep knowledge of chemistry is essential in order to know exactly how to administer medicines to patients. Most nurses are entrusted with the task of giving patients their medicine and it the nurse’s job to know how medicines will react with the symptoms as well as which medicines complement each other and which will react adversely when taken together. Knowledge about these combinations is essential because a wrong combination could result in the death of a patient.
