    A&P is fun if you think about it the right way. Get one of those A&P coloring books! Remember the body is what we are mainly dealing with in nursing, so having a solid knowledge base of that is tantamount to success! Enjoy your classes!!

    I'm going to second the coloring books. I used the anatomy one as a study 'break' when I was studying for my athletic training boards to help fill in gaps mostly in muscle Origin/Insertion/Action and ligaments. (Passed on the first try!!!) It was a great way to break up tedious dry studying (say...pain control theories and modality parameters) while still studying.

    I didn't know a physiology one existed until browsing the nursing section at B&N one day and I grabbed it to help get me ready for my program in June.

    Here's a link to the anatomy one I used:

    Good luck in your program!!

    A&P, particularly the P, is my favorite part of healthcare. Physiology, pathophysiology, pharmacology, psychopathology are really great. Running IV pumps, giving feedings, tending to wounds, putting assorted tubes into the body...not so much (for me!), lol. Anyway, you'll do great. Before you know it you'll be looking back thinking, "Wow, that went by fast. It was a ***** doing it, but I'm glad it's done."
