Hi, Coldfoot! I'm currently taking 4 pre-req's online, and have taken a couple of other classes online in previous semester, but I personally can NOT imagine succeeding at A&P online. I'm a straight A student, completing all pre-req's this summer (although it doesn't appear I'll be accepted into nursing this fall -- boo, hoo), and even with that record, I wouldn't consider A&P online for myself.
I completely understand about your work schedule, and with the economy today, if you must work while going to school, it's not a great time to look for a different job that would allow you to take A&P "in person."
Do you have any other options? Perhaps another school close by that offers A&P at night, or at a time convenient for you? I would recommend checking out all other options before committing to taking it online.
There is SO much to learn, and the labs truly do help you get some hands-on to associate with what you're learning. The live lectures would give you a better opportunity to learn, I would think, as typically the lectures add some input that a textbook just isn't capable of. Also beneficial to me within lectures, was my instructors generous tips on what to focus on learning, and what information wasn't as important within the text. My instructor was great at sharing her personal experiences with us to help us relate to what we were learning; I wouldn't trade those stories for anything, unless I had no other option.
Whatever forum you're going to utilize for A&P, be prepared to spend MEGA hours studying. Keep a positive attitude and know that it will all work out the way it is supposed to. YOU CAN DO IT! Best wishes!
