I am currently taking Anatomy & Physiology I at my university. I am however, transferring next semester. The university I am going to does a different sequence, they do Anatomy in one course and Physiology in another. Rather than A&P I and II. Has anyone else ever come across this issue?
I need to figure out how I can get credit for A&P if they do a different sequence. I know the community college around there has A&P II, but I have heard its common for nursing schools for a BSN that you take both at the university. Anyone have any thoughts?

You will need to discuss this with the school you intend to transfer to. Be sure to have the course syllabus and description. When my sister transferred schools, they were going to make her retake a speech class because there wasn't anything called a speech class on her transcript. She presented them with the course description, which went well beyond the general education speech requirement, and they counted that for a transfer credit.
Go in prepared, have documentation, and speak with someone who has the authority to decide whether the credits will transfer or not. They may not accept the transfer credits if they feel it will not meet their requirements, especially if you've only taken one of a two course sequence. It's a school based decision, so you will need to seek guidance from them, not from a message board where we don't have the information needed to make the call.

More so looking to see if someone has experienced this, I do in fact know what to do in terms of contacting the school etc. The question was based on getting into a BSN program with credits from a community college. My university I currently go to has a very low acceptance rate for A&P I and II if taken from a community college. They prefer it taken at the university where the BSN is offered. Thanks for your comment though!

I'm in a BSN course with many community college credits as are many in my cohort. Your performance is what matters most.

Check with the Admissions department at the school you plan to attend and provide them with the syllabus (for the course you took as well as the one you want to take) if you are able to. Like the others have said it is up to the school accepting the credit to review and determine if it will transfer.
My school has accepted transfer credits both ways, as long as the content between the courses combined matches and that timing and grading are within transfer credit policy.
