A&P I Spring 2013 - page 2
I did not see another thread, so I thought I would start one for fellow students to chat and get support. Anyone else taking A&P I this spring?... Read More

It all comes down to what else you have going on (if you have a job, children, etc) and how hard you are willing to work. My husband took 4 classes over the summer, 2 of them sciences with labs. I thought he was insane since summer term is only 6 weeks! He hardly ever slept, but still managed to ace his classes. Anything is possible if you are committed!
I am taking A&P along with World History, Growth and Development, and Statistics. I am considering adding another class since I am not working now, but am still undecided!
I have started studying a little for A&P, but trying to enjoy the break!

Bio Lab (seperate class), A&P I, and Biomedical Ethics.For whatever reason, advisement told me to refrain from piling classes with any of the sciences, especially a&p. I'm curious to know if anyone else has attempted to take a lot of classes with this course?
I took A&P along with with Pharmacology, Microbiology and Computer Science, but when I transferred to the college I am at now, they didnt accept the credits, so I am re-taking them. I aced A&P the first time I took it.
Personally, I didn't find it hard. Lots of memorization, sure, but not extremely difficult material such as a class like Chemistry. I loved A&P, I thought it was fascinating.

- 0Dec 30, '12 by ArrowRN, BSN, RNQuote from janellybellyadvisement is correct. When I took these clases I would combine them with 1 or 2 easy humanity classes. A couple of times I had to drop classes cause I was overworked. The major science classes you need A's in are A&P1 and 2, microbiology and chemistry are very time consuming classes, avoid taking these together and , if possible, with only no more than 1 other class. Easy classes to take these with these would be any humanities, growth and Development, sociology, or nutrition. If you got the time, General Biology is not a prerequsite for most RN programs however, it is a good course to take prior to taking microbiology and A&PFor whatever reason, advisement told me to refrain from piling classes with any of the sciences, especially a&p. I'm curious to know if anyone else has attempted to take a lot of classes with this course?
- 0Dec 30, '12 by Mikkie13A&P was the hardest courses for me and it is always best to partner this class with an easy one if you have to take a a another class. How are the online classes for Darton? I am thinking about transferring and taking only online classes. I would like to apply to the Summer 2013 Thomasville class but not sure when they start classes?
- 0Dec 30, '12 by 2015RN2bI took A&P 1 (both lecture and lab) along with Nutrition in the same semester, but I also worked full time. I found it very challenging but mostly because our A&P teacher was a lazy MSN who just sat down and read off of powerpoint slides. Kept us in the class the entire time...never ending early...even if it meant playing things like bogus Bingo games on things we didn't even review in class. It was ridiculous and that made it much more stressful. At the end we got lucky because she allowed open book for our final but it was a lot of content to cover so if you didn't know the chapter or where to find the stuff, you were stuck with not being able to finish on time. I took Nutrition with A&P 1 thinking it would be an easy balance but Nutrition also turned out to be a pretty difficult class. I ended up with an A in each of the 3 but I busted my rump the entire 14 weeks. It can be done..just stay focused and take good notes. GOOD LUCK!
- 2Dec 30, '12 by georgiapeachgalI took four other classes with A&P1. If you read the textbook and follow your professor's objectives, it's not so bad. Only 6 people out of my class of 160 made an A. However, I finished easily with a 95 average because I REPEATEDLY read the chapters.Last edit by georgiapeachgal on Dec 30, '12
