DCN Students: Did you have trouble transferring Anatomy and Physiology?

  1. I'm sorry to be hogging the board with yet another DCN question. I have already taken Physiology with a lab. My next to take is Human Anatomy. I wanted to take it online at a different school than my Physiology. This is just like taking A&PI and II except in Physiology we talk about the how and why and in Anatomy you talk about what and where. So it's not combined as much as A&PI & II. I'm desperately hoping that DCN will go ahead and allow it because I really can't imagine having to take over that class again. I worked my tail off to get my A and I REALLY REALLY don't want to have to do that again. PLUS, I would be another semester behind where I want to be due to that. UGH! So has anyone had their classes separately like that and taken them in different schools and DCN accepted them? Thanks for any advice. I have a call and e-mail into them, but haven't heard back yet.

    Hi Melissa,

    I do believe that DCN does have some requirements for A&P. I think I remember reading something about that A&PI and II need to be taken at the same institution. Maybe if you send them a link to the syllabii for those classes that will help them to see that there was indeed continuity in the course sequence.

    Hope this helps and good luck!

    Melissa,

    Mona is correct...you must take A & P I & II at the same school for it to be transferable to DCN.

    When I went up to DCN they told me that they would not accept my A and P even though it was taken at the same institution. Are they just bullying me around or what?

    I know that it HAS to be four hours with a lab at least. They will not accept 3hours A&P even if it had a lab and even if the class time was longer than 3 hours. At least that's what they told me.

    BaconLPN,

    I would not say they are bullying you. I have a DCN classmate that had her RMA and that program included A & P, but DCN would not transfer it in. Don't let that get you down, the more fresh your A & P is in your mind the better you will do in the program.

    Yes, that is correct. They want a four credit A&P with lab. They also have a time limit. For example, after 10 years you must retake the sciences.
    Ouch ...wouldn't want to go through that again.

    Good Luck
