How do you do A&P online? What is the lab?

For me, I have done A&P1, A&P 2 and chem 101 online and they mail you everything. I completed a brain, an eye, a kidney, a heart and a fetal pig dissection on top of the chem labs ! It's not easy but it works!

You did this through Portage Learning? I believe that was the question.  My understanding is that all the Portage labs are video dissections being done by someone else that you have to observe, take notes, and then test on.

Ah I'm sorry, I thought it was in general how would you do a lab with an online class. This was through Ivy Tech though!

nursing schools typically do not accept labs online, especially not for A&P

I think this advice may be a bit outdated. At least from the ones I've researched, I've only found one that cared (of probably close to ten schools). With community colleges especially, there's no way to tell if you took the lab online or in person based on transcripts.

Westcott Courses manages to do online labs for some nursing courses and claims they can offer college credit for those labs. Would this work?

You would have to check with each school you're applying to.  It looks similar to Portage.  My dilemma is the primary school I plan to apply to will not accept Portage A&P, but the backups will.  To further complicate it, I don't need them for my primary choice (They accept my older prereqs), but was going to try to move my B to an A. 

These Westcott courses are through Brandman University in California.  I did a quick check of my #1 choice in school in the transfer equivalency system, and that school wasn't recognized. 

You could always have the admissions dept evaluate it.

I do believe you can transfer WASC accredited courses pretty much anywhere in the USA.

I looked up portage and they are apparently a offshoot of geneva college.

Geneva's accreditation is through Middle States Commission on Higher Education.. I wonder if it is more/less easy to transfer. Will have to do more reading.

Yeah, they're both regionally accredited.  My local community college/Tech College reviewed the syllabus (Portage) and said it doesn't match up with their A&P.  The fairly large and well-respected state university nursing program a few miles away will accept it.  Who knows?

Ironically, the school that won't accept it will accept UoP's 7 week A&P.  I don't know how well you learn A&P in 7 weeks.  I can't find any good info on it.  I know a lot of their other classes include a lot of paper writing.  So, maybe you have to write a paper on the systems of the body each week.

7 weeks sounds pretty brutal. Westcott gives 5 months!

Who is UoP? university of phoenix? i'd run like hell from those folks..
