    This semester in my anatomy class we use human cadavers and each student does a specific dissection assigned on a cadaver. I go to a junior college but my school doesn't combine anatomy and physiology classes for nursing students. In high school we used sheep eye, cow heart and brain and a fetal pig.

    A&p1: Cats, rats, and some sheep.
    A&P2: Cats, sheep, cow for certain organs

    Some schools use cadavers if they have a program to help them and allow them to use them (usually the schools that have their own med school under their name), but most schools don't have cadavers since it's far too expensive to create and manage.
