“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!! and do I still have a chance of getting into nursing school?

That’s going to be a school-specific question. You'd have to ask them.

I agree with cturtle. That would be a very specific school policy. If that quote you listed is all they have, it sounds more like they are referring to specific nursing courses, not prerequisites (which would be pretty typical - two failures in nursing generally = you're out). From that one policy alone, I would guess it is not talking about the A&P and its lab but you should definitely reach out to them and find out. While talking to them, you might as well ask how they view retakes to see if they allow them, if they "replace" the failure, etc. Where I work, prereqs and actual nursing classes are viewed separately but there are various policies for both. 

And to answer your final question, yes, you still have a chance of getting into nursing school. Some nursing schools are extremely harsh on retakes but others will certainly allow for "redemption" from an early struggle and with continued strong grades, hopefully the school you choose will see your capabilities despite that one grade.

that sounds like just one course, but I would ask the school.
