Hello everyone! Has anyone taken A&P totally online at CPCC? Here's my situation. My hubby is not supportive of me pursuing nursing school
, but I NEED to continue. I am just starting the process and I am hoping that after a year or so of pre-reqs, he'll come around. Anywho.... we have a two YO son and I work FT. CPCC offers A&P as an online class and if I sign up for that one, then hubby can't really complain (it won't "inconvenience" him in any way) or sabotage me by not coming home to take care of son so I have to miss class. Without putting too much personal stuff out there (although some might say I already have LOL), I don't have any family nearby that I could drop him off with last minute. However, during my last college courses Moses was my classmate, so I think that getting back into the physical
classroom, listening to lectures and having that dedicated time would really benefit me. I've read complaints on the Pre-nursing forum that online classes you are basically teaching yourself. Can anyone tell me if that's the case at CPCC? How does it even work? I've taken one online class. It was a computer networking class. I did well, but it wasn't difficult material. I didn't learn anything, but I also didn't really care about the material. I don't know that I can use that as a good indicator. But I only have one shot with A&P and my entire future is riding on it. Can anyone tell me how the online science classes are at CPCC? Things got ugly, scary
ugly, when I took my NA class. If the online classes aren't that bad, it might not be worth the extra stress on myself, marriage and family. Thanks!

Just coming from an experienced CPCC student, Ive been here a few years and seen the ropes unfortunaly lol. I didnt do so well my first time around... I got a C in A&P 1, but later a B in A&P 2. **** is hands down the best anatomy teacher at CPCC and has been for years. His classes are always high demand. Both of my classes were in class because thats what they offered. But I heard the online Micro is very tough.
With that said, online classes usually have been easier for me. But with the huge amount of material in A&P or Microbiology, I wouldn't recommend taking those online. The Anatomy may be ok online, but I highly recommend not taking Microbiology online, but thats just me. Microbiology was nearly the Death
of me in school lol. I had to withdraw the first time due to stress, the second time I had a "C". I will not go into detail but the teacher I had was so ridiculous with grading. I had points taken off my test because I "doubled up" on writing on a line..
Needless to say, only about 5-10 had an "A" in our class and many dropped.
