I passed A&P 1 with a A and A&P II with a B. Although I don't feel like I have learned anything in A&P II because I barely studied for it and just kept guessing on the exams and it help that my teacher kept adding a 15 point curve to each exam (test average was usually 54%-67%). I scored a 75 on all my exams without the curve (except for th final).
My final exam in that class (digestive system) I did not study for it at all because it was take home and all I did was Google the answers and ended up with a B with no curve which boosted up my final grade to a high B (89%).
Same for lab, I only attended maybe 5/16 labs because attendance was not mandatory. All I did was copy from my friends labs and studied those then took the lab exams. I ended with an A in lab as a final grade as it was really easy to get.
So as you can see, I just don't feel prepared to start nursing school without much background in A&P II even though I took it this spring semester which I am ashamed of.
Same goes for my medical terminology
class, I received an A but since it was online I never once studied for it but just googled all the answers and got help from my sister who was a medical assistant on some problems. This is why I absolutely HATE online classes because I never take them seriously or put any effort in them.
How bad will this affect me in nursing school? I was a 4.0 student but my GPA went down to a 3.84 this semester. I took these classes at my state university. Thanks.
I appreciate you for wanting to improve on your knowledge. Nursing school is very fast pace and all we have is our competence and character to succeed. check out free online A&P youtube channels that fit your learning style. I wish you the best and congratulations on your acceptance to nursing school.
