    Hello,

    I do not believe there is one. The reason for pre-requisites is to give you a foundation on the topic you are about to embark. I do not know what is motivating you to take A&P without taking biology first, but it would just make it more difficult to "connect the dots".

    Bite the bullet, take Biology first.

    I don't believe any regionally accredited A&P classes lack biology as a prereq. Have you never taken any type of bio course? Sometimes if you have a higher bio than the prereq, they will allow that to be used to satisfy the prereq instead. Though if you honestly never had a college bio course, it's probably best to take one as its a good foundation for A&P.

    I didn't take Biology in high school or in college. I passed A&P 1 with an A. It's possible, but I don't know about online. I would not have wanted to take it online at all.

    I was lucky. At the university I took pre-reqs biology was not needed to take A&P. It was not online however. Did you check the community college in your area for their pre-req requirements for A&P? I think for sciences, most nursing schools don't accept most of the sciences that don't have an on-site lab period. My school would accept other pre-reqs taken online, but not sciences.

    I found onsite schools with no biology prerequisite but I moved to another state and I couldn't do it. Plus, online class would be more flexible for me.

    Maybe look at your nearest community college(s), then? They will generally have quite a few online classes. I know mine has online A&P (you just had to pay like $400 just for a lab kit for the lab portion). I did a hybrid course myself.

    And it didn't require biology prerequisite?
  11. by   idkmybffjill
    Yeah. I thought mine had a biology prereq at first, but I realized there wasn't. So a community college near you could easily have one without bio as a prereq. They might also have one that starts later in the semester that you could still sign up for, depending on enrollment length.

    Clovis Community College in NM has online A&P 1 and 2. You have to buy the lab kit separately and you do the dissections at home. No prereqs. Registration for the current term ends on Monday.
