Hi there,

I completed 6 hours of A&P online with U of Rochester which did not include labs. However, I need to also complete labs online (US citizen and live in the Philippines) bc schools I want to apply to now require them but want to avoid retaking entire course.

Does anyone know where I can take only labs online? I have already contracted rio salado, cayuga, ccco, nwicc, suny, and nova they all say it is not possible.

Help! Thanks much!

Kris

They said it's not possible because it's not possible. A lab is just that, you need a lab. You need to physically touch, see and manipulate bones, muscles and other body parts. You need to identify cells and stages of cell division under a microscope. None of these things can be done online. You will need to retake A&P which includes a lab section.

It is possible to do a lab online and several schools - all the ones I listed in my previous post plus many more. Online labs work different at each school. some send you dissection kits/microscopes while others just require online CD/web work.

Since, I know it is possible just looking for schools that will let me take it independent of core class.

That's great, I truley did not know of any online lab class. I still think you may have a problem. From my understanding (I am certainly not an expert) the didactic and lab have to be done at the same time under USA rules for nursing schools. I wish you the best.
