I think you might have misunderstood the acceptance letter.....contingent upon successful completion of these courses. Find a complete summer course....it will be difficult.
I wish you the best of Luck!
Schools in my area offer a separate anatomy class, and a separate physiology class. If you look, you may be able to take both over the summer.
Its actually common with ABSN programs. But for ADN or BSN programs usually it requires at least part 1 of A&P, but usually both parts. Im sure the OP didnt understand that A&P was required for the program. However, they need to act quick, since the summer classes fill up quick and take time to complete.
For my ABSN program, which starts in the fall, I had to complete A&P I with lab, A&P II with lab, and general psychology. It was REQUIRED. Take A&P hun. You could find both classes for the summer, but you will be rushing through material and will be studying for that A...and will not retain a thing. If it were me, I would take A&P I in the summer and A&P II in the fall...then apply for NS.

What credible absn programs would that be? Because the one I'm in and every one I looked at had a two semester requirement. I can't imagine a single reputable program allowing that.

The only way I know how to "test out" was if they'd been taken prior and it's past the time limit. For example, at our school our sciences have to be within 7 years. If they are older than that you can either take them again or test out. if you test out and pass you get whatever your grade was when you took the class. If you fail you have to take the class.
And I ditto the others, A&P is the foundation you need!
Bridgeport Hospital, UCONN, even Yale (I know of in connecticut) all will accept students contingent on them completing A&P 1+2, micro, etc. You must show that you are either signed up for the class or intent on taking the class, but they will accept you contingent on it. It's a ABSN program, which means the students already showed academic success, and that completing a few classes won't be tough for them.
That's not the same thing as testing out. I think we're on two different pages.

Im gonna be a little mean here and say, i think you may have jumped into a nursing program soon if the thought of "testing out" of the single most important pre-nursing course possible crossed your mind. Nursing is pretty heavily based on anatomy and physiology, especially when it comes to oxygenation, blood, lab values and why the lab values are affected, as well as muscles. if you could test out of A&P and havent taken it at all before then your first semester will be much more difficult than most of your fellow students. Again, if i come of as mean about it i'm sorry, but i felt the need to be blunt.
I agree with this and I would wager that is going to be a course that you won't be permitted to "test out" of either.
I have never taken A&P and tested out. The test I took was offered by the community college and was made for former militatry medical types who might have had quite extensive training in A&P but never actually took a college class in A&P. That was me. I learned A&P in the army and learned it very well. Well enough that 7 years after the army A&P classes I was able to ace the challenge exam 20 min after I learned they offered it. They also would allow others to take the test. For example one girl in my class had a bachelors degree in animal science and had taken several animal A&P classes and she also passed the challenge exam no problem.
How does one get accepted into a nursing school without having taken A&P?
*** Many, many schools do not require A&P for accepence into the nursing program. Not all scholl have pre-req's. Here in Wisconsin the public technical college nursing programs do not require any college class pre-reqs. All the usual classes, like A&P, are part of the program and taked along with nursing classes.
My school actually accepts you before taking a&p but you have to take a&p 1 while taking nursing 1 or before because its a pre req for nursing 2. The nursing school I go to is very reputable Chirst hospital school or nursing in jersey city nj. I personally took both a&p before my nursing courses, I actually did all my non nursing courses before nursing school so I could focus more on my nursing program.
I don't know if you can test out but do you think you could take a&p 1 during the summer? And then take a&p 2 during the program? You should def talk to your school about this.
Hope everything works out!
