Abstract. A nationwide, online survey of practicing nurses was conducted to better understand what chemistry topics nurses consider foundational and important to their practice. Interviews of nursing graduate students and nursing faculty offer insight into survey responses. The topics surveyed appear to be important and foundational to nursing practice and align well with earlier surveys in the literature with biochemical topics being the most important.
