What A&P review should I do?

I've been reading that before I start nursing school (this August), I should brush up on my A&P, but since there was soooooo much covered between these two science classes and I only have a month to review, what should I focus on?

Any advice will be much appreciated. Thank you. :)

I'm in the same boat as you. I bought coloring books for A&P (which I know sounds childish, but it is actually quite a thorough review for A&P) to keep me entertained. I have heard that we should be very familiar with the renal/diuretic system. But for some reason, that's the only thing I can recall that was recommended to review.


Specializes in L&D, infusion, urology.

Go through everything, honestly. You don't have to do it with a fine-toothed comb, but at least review it so it's somewhat familiar. The kidneys are important to review. Follow a drop of blood. Remember metabolism and how that works. Remember osmosis, bulk flow, active transport, etc. Enzymes, how they work. How food is absorbed into the body. How the immune system works.

That should get you started. :)

Congrats on getting into a program!
