What is the best online option for prerequisites for nursing. I have to take A and P 1 and 2 , micro, nutrition , human growth and development. I’m taking A and P one right now through straighterline. It’s a lot!!

Make sure the school you are targeting takes Straighterline. There are three in my region that do, so it was it a good option for me. It’s ace credit, not traditional ra college credit.

if the schools you are going to target require regionally accredited classes (ra) the next best options are likely portage learning (if they take it, virtual labs,) followed by edukan which is actually just a group of community colleges in Kansas iirc, and lastly New Mexico junior college. They are likely the cheapest option aside from Straighterline, but lack the flexibility and self paced style of portage.

Just make sure that the schools you apply to are accepting online courses. Due to COVID-19 I imagine schools are OK with online, but sometimes they require in person labs.

I’m wondering if I made a mistake by signing up with Straighterline. Portage learning has 7 modules and builds the lab in with it

Indeed, but many schools won’t take portage because the lab is virtual.

‘You need to find out what your target schools will accept.

My target school accepts portage learning.
