    I ended up with a D in Physiology semester before this last one. It wrecked me. I am also all A's. Took Micro this semester, aced it, got a bit of my confidence back. Next semester - physio. We have a C or better can't retake policy also. I wanted the C, but then didn't, so that I could retake it. Prereqs are gnarly sometimes. We'll make it!

    Take the information you need to know to pass the class, there is so much information in A&P 1&2, in my opinion there is know way to absorb the entire book and keep your sanity. Highlight areas that you may want to touch up on when you have free time. Learn what you need to pass the class and ONLY what you need. Trust me in nursing school whatever information you need from anatomy your nursing instructor will reintroduce if need be as it relates to nursing. Pass your A&P and move on to the next core class, when needed it will all come together. God Bless and Merry Christmas :-)

    Depends on the school you want to get into, but anything grade of C or above is passing. I know plenty of people who had 2.5-3.0 GPAs who have become RNs either ADN or BSN. However, more competitive schools like where I live in southern California, a single B in the big 4 Anatomy/Physiology/Micro/Chem can put you at risk of not getting into a program. I have a 4.0 and didn't get into the nursing program, and am reapplying next semester.
    That's ridiculous how did you not get accepted with a 4.0? So if someone gets 1 B and has a 3.9 they're not good enough? We're human we can't always be perfect, I didn't think 1 B would be the end of the world.

    Some schools are more competitive than others. I know a school as well where a 4.0 still might not get you into the program, many applicants have 4.0s.Often times they will use tie breaker factors like previous healthcare experience, TEAS test, volunteer hours, CNA certification, ect. Other schools just will place you on a waiting list.
