    Both courses are time consuming for me anatomy was more time consuming with memorization ect. Good idea balancing your schedule always important but vital in nursing school :-)

    If CNA is your ultimate goal, I'd recommend A&P because it will prepare you better to communicate with other nurses. If you want to progress into LPN/LVN or RN... either one is good. Most likely you'll have to take both anyway (particualrly in the RN program).

    That's my 2 cents!

    I think I would take it with Chem...like the first person said, anatomy did have a lot more to memorize (IMO).

    Lachell--

    In my experience, faced with the choice you pose, I'd say--It hardly matters, at all. Either choice is likely to turn out much the same.

    But for the substance of things--A&P, properly approached & prepared for, does not really involve all that much memorization--UNLESS A&P is one's first exposure in life to its subject matter, AND unless, once exposed to a topic, one retains practically nothing of it.

    I have long felt (even if few seem to care) that a thorough grounding in "Medical Terminology" will carry one almosty effortlessly through a lot of A, and a fair amount of P. Perhaps MT is no longer thought of as necessary preparation for much of anything. If that were true, then yes, one could be in for a lot of memorization (without understanding).

    HTH.

    Best of luck.

    I think I'm going to go with Chemistry as well guys. I talked to one of my classmates in A&P 1 who has already taken the course, and she told me that CNA 1 is pretty much common and that I would be better off taking it with Chemistry than with A&P 2 because A&P is more time consuming. So I've decided to take it with Chemistry! Thanks for your reply!

    @Devin Rex Thanks for your reply! My ultimate goal is to become an RN but the community college I'm applying to requires you to be CNA 1 certified before you can apply. So I'm really just trying to avoid a heavy workload.
