I am just beginning pre-reqs and sat down with my advisor to plan my courses.
She put me in A&P II before A&P I because that is what is offered in Spring (so I can begin it now at the end of January) and I will be taking A&P I next Fall (it is only offered in the Fall).
I asked her if that is ok and she said it is, because they cover different body systems.
Anyone else did this?
Will I be ok?
Thanks-in-advance for your assistance...
You can't take A&P II before A&P I...You will learn the very basics of A&P in the first course and more advanced physiology in the second course. Your advisor obviously isn't very familiar with how nursing prerequisites work. You would be so utterly confused in A&P II if you took it first. It would be like learning the whole subject backwards. Go talk to an other advisor and have this problem fixed.
To add to my original post...The specific reason this wouldn't work is because in A&P II, they assume that you already know/remember all the material from A&P I, so there would be an array of material that you wouldn't be familiar with in order to do well in the class.
