Tips/resources for reviewing anatomy before nursing school?

After slowly chugging through my pre-requisites, I'm finally about to get on with the clinical phase of my nursing education. I did well in A&P, but definitely feel rusty. Any tips for books/apps/websites, etc that specifically focus on the anatomy knowledge that will be most crucial in nursing school? I assume a working knowledge of muscles around injection sites, blood vessels, heart physiology -- but welcome any other ideas, especially regarding the tougher-to-memorize physiology stuff that might involve chemistry (e.g. will I really need to know the fine details of how kidneys work)? Thanks for any ideas!

You’ll review physiology as you study different body systems in your nursing courses as it’s relevant.  I would just refresh as it comes up - usually there’s a bit of it included in your exams.
