    The University of Phoenix offers one - it's 4 credits and I believe costs around $435/credit plus the cost of a textbook.

    I would be wary of any Ap and P courses offline as usually for them to be accepted for transfer credit on of them must have a lab component.

    Mayville State University. I don't know if it's accredited, but it says it's one of the only online A&P classes that include a lab. I took the A&P I last semester and I'm taking A&P II with them now. I was deciding between them and University of Phoenix, but they were cheaper. My adviser suggested I take it because my school only offers A&P I in the fall and A&P II in the spring and I was starting in the spring.

    Sorry for the short notice; but I took an online A&P I and II and loved it, the labs are included (Virtual labs); I also took Microbiology with lab online. The school is Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College and it is accredited and ONLY 8 weeks long.

    How did you do with the online AP and Micro?

    At MGCCC, I got an "B" in A&P I and "As" in A&P II and Microbiology! I found the classes to be very informative and I learned a lot. I took classes with UoP and did not like the idea that your grades are based upon team assignments/ projects. If I get an "A", I want to know that I earned it and vice versa. I also found UoP to be very expensive, $1400 for one class if you are an independent student.

    I know this thread is old, but maybe you'll respond
    I just signed up to take APII at mgccc for the 8 week course. Is the workload doable? Did you have to have your tests proctored too? What professor did you have? Sorry for all the questions!!

    try your local or other state community college is the best way to ensure you are taking an accredited course that you can transfer. I am doing all my pres online at florida community college www.fccj.edu for A&P1 i was required to come in for testing and final exams, I doubt you will find one totally online, however, I am in the middle of A&PII and it is 100% online testing and all....
    to the last post..I did an 8 week online course last year..boy was that a mistake...get ready to hustle hustle...more times you will have 2 assignments per week..if you not working, it is doable..but i was working full time and taking 2 other courses...pulled out with a C but to keep those A's it will take commitment.

    Definitely check the requirements of the nursing program you are considering. Most have very specific requirements regarding the lab component.

    Check out your state's community college system. Here in Virginia 1 of the 21 community colleges offers A&P I and II online (at $103/credit for instate students). Another offers Lifespan Development online (at $101/credit).

    Glow Worm,

    Ocean County College in Toms River NJ is fully accredited and offers A&P I and II ONLINE (with lab) all summer long. Many students take the prerequisite science courses online at OCC and then go back to their local nursing program. There were many students from Alaska in my class taking their prerequisites waiting to start their programs in Alaska.

    OCC offers hands-on labs with a microscope and a labpaq delivered to your door step. Here is the link to their science online courses:
