Lemon Bars Posted January 17, 2012 Share Posted January 17, 2012 Hey all, I'm having some issues with chemistry. Conceptually, I get the general idea, but I often get lost on multi-step calculation problems, making mistakes or even forgetting what the problem was about. I'm not terrible at math, but it's hard. I'm also having trouble understanding why a non-research PA or doctor would need to know how to titrate things, calculate wavelengths and electron energies, balance redox reactions and so on. I feel like I might be really happy in the "chemistry for nurses" class instead of full on chemistry for science majors (I understand this is not allowed for PAs). Do I just need to suck it up and get the best grade I can, or is this possibly an indication that aiming for PA is too much and I should go for respiratory therapy instead? Are chemistry calculations vital to understanding pharmacology and to practicing as a PA? I could use some insight, a pep talk, or something along those lines. Thanks for any feedback! :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
