    Chamberlain College of Nursing is pleased to announce new part time teaching opportunities at our campus in Addison, IL.   

     

    The typical course of instruction may include:

     

    CHEM-120: Introduction to General, Organic & Biological Chemistry with Lab:

    This introduction to general, organic and biological chemistry includes topics such as chemical nomenclature, structures, equations, calculations and solutions. In addition, the chemical structure and function of biological macromolecules are surveyed. Lab exercises relate to topics discussed.

     

    This is a survey course that covers the lower division chemistry disciplines of general and organic chemistry and introduces the upper division discipline of biochemistry. The general chemistry section of the course seeks to build an understanding of basic chemical processes and states of matter by starting with the definition of matter and progressing through the atom, molecules, intermolecular interactions, chemical equations, and accounting. The organic chemistry section presents the major categories of organic compounds, including saturated and unsaturated hydrocarbons and oxygen- and nitrogen-containing compounds. In the biochemistry portion, students are exposed to the four major biological macromolecules with some coverage of enzymes and the central dogma of biology. Lab exercises relate to topics discussed.

     

    Courses meet twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays 8am-11am, courses run in eight week sessions. The face-to-face interaction in lab and classroom is blended with technology (such as online discussions and online assignments) for an enhanced learning environment. Commitment is on a course by course basis.
