I was the one to originally post this question... figured I'd come back with an update.
I took both A&P I and II online with NVCC in Virginia. First semester was during the summer (choice to complete in 8 or 12 weeks). I just completed the A&P II this fall (choice to complete in 8, 12 or 16 weeks) and I received A's in BOTH A&P courses. Yay!
It was tough but I can't imagine trying to fit in attending lecture and lab and finding time to study plus working full-time. I am sooo glad that I took the online version. But be prepared to spend 15-20+ hours a week for this one class--if you want to get an A...unless you've got a photographic memory.
I totally concur with MandaTaye's sentiments... my feelings exactly. I used our local community college (PVCC which is part of VCCS) and the testing center was my "proctor" and it worked out great and didn't cost me a thing.
I am now signed up to take Developmental Psych online, as well as Microbiology at PVCC via a hybrid course (lecture portion online, lab 4 Saturdays during Spring semester--for 8 hours each).
I was totally psyched to get A's and to discover that the online format worked well for me--that's why I'm going to try Microbiology and Dev. Psych online too this coming Spring semester (and still working full-time). I might decide to drop Dev. Psych if the work load is too much while working. Since I'm applying in February to start nursing school
fall of 2010... it doesn't matter really if I take both in the spring or not...b/c they can't factor these classes into my "weighted" application since I haven't completed them and earned a grade. oh well. I do what I can do and not worry about what I can't.
I'd recommend the online A&P for students that aren't prone to procrastination and who are happy working independently.
