Do i have to take physics in high school in order to be a Public health nurse?

i am not good at physics this year, so i have a feeling that this means i can't be a public health nurse or a pharmacist... Can you tell me if i have to take physics to be either of those 2 jobs? Can I do those jobs without physics?

There are plenty of pharmacy students who were accepted with Cs in college physics. The purpose of physics is to weed out people.
