Get prepared for Nursing Prerequisites!

Nursing prerequisites are challenging to many candidates of nursing schools. An understanding of molecular and cell biology, as well as chemistry, are only some of the requirements. At the same time, this knowledge lays the foundation of every nurse’s future career.

Adam Le Gresley, Associate Professor in the Department of Pharmacy and Chemistry at Kingston University London, Kevin Ahern, professor of biochemistry and biophysics at Oregon State University, Georgina Cornwall from Colorado Mountain College in Aspen, Vincent Racaniello, Higgins Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Columbia University, and Tarry Ahuja from Carleton University combine their experience and knowledge to provide the nurses of tomorrow with the basic equipment for their further studies.

At Lecturio, you will learn prerequisite topics at your own pace:

  • Microbiology: Bacteria, viruses and fungi
  • Psychology
  • Sociology
  • Cell biology: Cellular structure, enzymes and metabolism
  • Ionic, medical and organic chemistry

In addition to watching our high-quality video lectures, you can practice on quiz questions and download study materials. Start learning today!

 Adam Le Gresley, PhD

Adam Le Gresley, PhD

Dr. Adam Le Gresley is Associate Professor in the department of Pharmacy and Chemistry at Kingston University London.
Le Gresley was awarded his PhD in supramolecular organic chemistry by the University of Surrey in 2004 and carried out his postdoctoral research on photolabile compounds at Drexel College of Medicine in Philadelphia, USA, funded by the NIH.

He was appointed to the Faculty of Science at Kingston University in 2009, where he has been teaching on U/G and P/G courses within chemistry, pharmacy and the biological sciences for the last 6 years. In addition to teaching, Le Gresley maintains a small research group, funded by a number of industrial partners including GlaxoSMithKline with interests in NMR metabolomics, the synthesis of new in vitro diagnostic probes for problem pathogens and novel Rab7 inhibitors for the treatment of diabetes.
He is a regular reviewer for a number of peer-reviewed journals and has contributed to the development of courses across the faculty. Le Gresley was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2011 and subsequently to Associate Professor in Organic and Medicinal Chemistry in 2013.
