What courses did you take in conjunction with A & P?

  1. 0 Hello all,

    I'm taking my first class in a three term Anatomy and Physiology sequence this fall. My question for you folks is; How many, and what classes did you take in conjunction with A&P?

    I've completed micro and celllular biology, as well as genetics. While taking these courses I also took two other nursing prereqs for a total of 12 credits. I worked 40 hours and still found myself enjoying school and not remotely stressed.

    With A&P this fall, I am signed up for a total of four classes(16 credits). Ethics, Intro to Soc, Math and A&P.

    Thus far I have enjoyed my science classes, but I'm feeling slightly uneasy I may have taken on too much. I know this is something only truly I can determine, and am not asking you to do so. I also acknowledge that all individuals learn differently and have different circumstances regarding school (I.e, working or not, time contraints, children ect)
    but still I would love to get a perspective of other what other students schedules were/are when taking A&P!

    Whew - that was long. Thanks for your input.

    Cheers

    I have also had very packed schedules through nursing school. But A&P is hard and time consuming. I'm not sure what all I took then it was only 2 years ago. But I worked up to 32 hours a week. I think you"ll be fine if your prepared and time manage.

    I took A & P 2 with College Algebra, Psychology 1101, and Microbiology. Made A's in everthing accept Psychology which I made a B in. I honestly focused on my science courses and left college algebra and psychology on the back burner. After I finished studying for 3 hours, I would glimpse my algebra assignment and do my homework. It was not hard at all. I was able to multitask very well. It really just depends on the individual and how hard they are willing to work to obtain their dreams. Good Luck. I start my nursing courses this Tuesday

    Our A&P is different. It's 1 and 2 combined into a 5 credit hour class. I took that, college algebra, comp 1 and my 5 credit hour CNA class together, for 16 credit hours. Loved that pace.

    I think I took English 2, College algebra, and Acting. But that was 7 years ago (scary) so I could be wrong.

    I'm working 40 hours a week right now, and I'm only taking sociology along with A&P II. The studying is so time consuming, I don't want to overwhelm myself just yet, lol

    In the 2001 when I took A+P 1 I was taking that, general psych, English comp1 and nursing 1. Then I dropped out for personal reasons. This semester I am taking A+P 1, nutrition, college algebra, developmental psych and first aid. I wouldn't normally take that many classes but I had to take at least 12 credit hours so I could get A+P free.

    For my program prerequisites, there was a two part anatomy and physiology, 1 & 2. The first part being anatomy (the easiest), and physiology part (being the hardest due to having to understand actual processes). I am getting my BSN, so there is a ton of prereq's. With my A&P courses:

    Sophomore year, 1st semester: A&P 1 (BIO 210) w/ lab, CHEM 110 w/ lab, Life Span and Dev., MAT 110 (college algebra), and Art 101.
    Sophomore year, 2cd semester: A&P 2 (BIO 211) w/ lab, CHEM 111 w/ lab, ENG 201, HIS 102, POLY SCI 101.

    Tough, tough, tough, but worth it cramming all those classes.

    My freshman year was spent at a private liberal arts college, where i got in the prereq classes (i also took easy A classes like college life to keep my gpa in top shape) : statistics, english 101 and 102, biology 101 plus lab, math 102, speech and communications 101, psychology 201, sociology 101, and advanced spanish 102.

    I enrolled there before i knew what i really wanted to do with my life, so that left me a semester behind when i transferred but i wouldn't change it for anything.

    I took A&P1 with Sociology, english 2, and chemistry. It was very difficult for me because I had not taken many science classes yet. It seems like you have taken multiple science classes already so you should be fine!
