“A student who has failed (D, F, or WF) two (2) nursing courses, whether at a 2-year or 4-year institution (including ASU) will not be eligible for admission or continuation in the nursing program”

I was wondering if Anatomy and Physiology Lab was considered a separate class from Anatomy and Physiology Lecture or is it considered one course all together with the Lecture? Because I failed my AP Lecture & Lab.. and wanted to know if I was still eligible for nursing school? (I retook them and got a B)

Sooo since I failed them both, is it considered just one failed science course or two? Thank you!!

Depends on the school & time frame you took them in.  I can't really give you advice other than maybe see if a nursing school advisor can clear it up for you. Good luck.

I am not sure anyone here can give you an answer with any certainty. I would call or email my schools admissions office, or whoever deals with nursing specific admissions and ask them.

My first degree, bio lab and lecture were 2 different classes (3 credits and 1 credit). Now, my school has science lectures and labs counted as 1 4 credit class. You would need to ask your school. Good luck.

Nomally a lab and lecture class go together. They aren't apart from each other. Like if you fail the lab, you fail the lecture and vice versa. If you repeat the lab, you will have to repeat the lecture. I may be wrong but this is usually how it goes.

Check with the school of course, but in my school, these classes are prerequisites and NOT considered nursing classes. Our nursing classes all have the NRS prefix while the A&P classes are BIO classes. Only NRS classes "count" as nursing courses.

I’d suggest the same as another person posted, meet with an advisor. Are there any alternative nursing programs in your area? It’s a shame that one bad semester could eliminate you as a candidate, especially if you retook it and proved you mastered the material. Our school allows some retakes but still counts Ds Fs and Ws against us on admissions profile scores.

Typically lab and lecture are tied together as one class. Though they are "separate" (meaning lab is scheduled at a different time/location) they still must both be passed in order to pass the class overall.

 

It may work differently in some schools, but that's what I've experienced.
