    Hello Students,

    I am currently taking A & P and my teachers sux and I am not doing so good in it but I think that i am going to drop the course ..

If you could reply that would be wonderful .. NEED HELP or email me Cutiepie52525@yahoo.com THANK U Chrissy

    I am scheduled to take A and P I at edukan this fall. The course starts October 17 and there are still available seats.
    It's an 8 week course, and I know it's going to be intense but hopefully it will be worth. I have 2 little ones and my husband is in Iraq now too.
    I cannot offer you any advice about edukan, but I have read good things on this board about them.

    I am going to pm you. I believe all of the tests are online.

    We should take the course together, it would be fun to have each other to help one another out.

    I just enrolled with Edukan for A&P I. I don't start until Spring semester 2 (February 13, 2005) because I just started classes at Axia College and I want to get a feel for the Axia/UoP learning model before I jump into a time and labor extensive course such A&P. Also, since I am getting financial aid for Axia I have to pay for the science course out of my pocket so it would be best to wait for the income tax return! LOL! I chose this particular course because it is using the books I already have from my A&P II course I took last year. Don't ask. Anyhow, if anyone taking this course would be kind enough to tell me what it is like, I'd be grateful. Thanks in advance.

    Anyone know of an online Pathophysiology class?

    Hi Everyone,

    I wanted to give a plug to San Joaquin Valley College Online at http://www.sjvconline.edu

    Their courses are 5 weeks long and some are more intense than others depending on the teacher. They are quite pricey!! But for the short amount of time you can complete one class in and the convenience, it may seem worth it to some. Their courses are very well organized and the teachers usually respond fairly quickly to you.

    Let me know if you have any questions about the school. I have nothing to say but good things about it, except for the price!! If you enroll in one of their certificate/degree programs on line you can get financial aid and grants to help with the price.

    Good luck,
    Jen

    University of Wyoming has one. It is listeds as a Pharmacy class though. If you go to the School of Nursing and look at the online program you will see it in the prerequisites.

    I am taking a 3 credit Microbiology course online through Brigham Young University. I got approval from my advisor at Excelsior and was told that this course satisfies the micro requirement.....

    www.byu.edu
    Hi,
    I am going through Excelsior as well. Can you not clep out of some of the prereq's? I am just getting started on the ones that I have left.. I have most of the prereqs.

    Regarding sjvconline, are all the tests online or do you have to go to a testing center?? You stated that the class intensity varies by instructor, are you willing to share the names of some good a&p and Micro teachers? Oh,, and by pricey, just how pricey? I couldn't get that info on their website. Do I also understand correctly that you don't actually have to enroll into any of their programs and can just take the class you want without hassle? What about transcripts....I know it's alot of questions, but they interested me and its the weekend and couldn't get anyone to answer me at the school. You can PM if you wish. Thanx

    Hi Everyone,

    I am in the same boat as all of you. I have taken micro and chemistry online. I took micro through ccconline and highly recommend it. I got the lab kit from at home science and borrowed a microscope. As long as you do the work and keep up you will do ok. The instructor was very nice and very good for online.

    I took chemistry through the iowa community college consortium (someone posted a link somewhere on this thread) with Dr. Klepper. And he is very good. Again, if you do the work and keep up you can do well. I am taking the second chemistry class this spring again with Dr. Klepper.

    I live in California and had applied to a new pilot nursing program right here in my town. I was very excited, I have a very high gpa. I just got my letter saying that I did not make it past the evaluation because of my online microbiology. they are very strict here in california and I am very frustrated. all of the community college rn programs are so impacted, like 300 people applying for every 50 spots. I feel like I will never get in for three years. I've beenn accepted to an out of state accelerated BSN but it is very expensive and I can't actually imagine moving accross the country. Its stressing me out really. I think it is interesting that the BSN programs will take the online classes but the stupid Junior college programs won't. Sorry for venting but I've been very frustrated. Any advice is welcomed.

    Try petioning them again. Bring in your syllabus and lab guide, along withyour lab notebook showing how you completed the experiments. Get a letter from your instructor. I would not throw in the towel yet. You might be able to convince them to accept it, or to let you take an exam.

    Good luck!
