Thank you!! Was just excepted into the BSN program I am reading over all of your material.
Great! I hope it helps!!
Awesome! I am starting my pre- reqs to apply to the nursing program and this is amazing! Thank you!
These outlines are going to be so helpful to me! So glad to have just discovered your site. Curious to know if you saved any helpful materials from Microbiology… Thank you!
Sorry…I don’t have any of my notes from Micro…I didn’t start typing them up until A&P. Good luck with school!
Amazing site!! I’m trying to brush up on A&P while on a nursing waitlist. I love how you condensed all this wonderful information in one place! Thank you!!
Hello! Thank you for your wonderful blog. It has been so helpful to me in my first month of Anatomy. I wanted to ask if you could share your study strategies for A&P… we are on the skeletal system and I am considering shelling out $300 for a skeleton from Amazon because I just don’t get enough time in lab to study the bones (even going to open lab, tutoring, etc). Your input is much appreciated! -Mandi
DO NOT spend $300 on a skeleton! Yikes! Get an atlas that shows all the bones and study them that way. That’s what I did! I have a post on the site somewhere that talks about how I studied for A&P…maybe try looking under Study Tips? I’ll see if I can find it.
Here is a link to the Study Tips for A&P post: https://straightanursingstudent.com/?p=476
I considered throwing down money I don’t have on models for the same reason. I’m so glad I didn’t. Nurse Mo works so hard to provide us all these resources. I reached out to my school and they hooked me up with all sorts of free study aids.
Thank you for all of your helpful responses! The Study Tips helped me quite a bit… I got an A on my lab practical 🙂
I’m SO glad I found your blog. This is amazing! I’m strongly considering applying to my schools nursing program and I’m taking my first prereq next semester (anatomy & physiology I). I’m really nervous because I want to do so well but I’m scared I wont. I’m just really glad I found your blog because you provide so much helpful info and your notes look great. Can’t wait to read all of them 🙂
Good luck with school!
I love this website! thank you for the notes; equivalent to group study!
So glad you are finding it helpful!
I love this site! Thanks, I start my sciences course next semester and these notes will indeed come in handy… I would recommend this site for everyone.
Thanks Kenneth! Tell all your friends! 🙂
This is amazing! So happy I found it – wish I would have before my A&P I & II classes. I did well in both, but I love your notes. Do you have notes on blood pressure regulation? I would like to get more review in on that before starting nursing school this fall.
I should have something along those lines under cardiac physiology. Let me know if you don’t find it.
I just started A&P 1 this week, so I hope these notes will come in handy!! Thank you for doing this 🙂
Good luck with school!!
Thanks so much for this blog. I’m glad I found it :-). I’m completing my prerequisites for nursing school. Just aced Pharmacology this summer and will be taking AP 1 this fall and I’m so nervous. I have a feeling I’ll be on here a lot!
This blog rocks????????
So glad it’s helping you!!! Best of luck with school 🙂
I’m 4 wks into A&P and was beginning to feel so overwhelmed. You site is simply amazing and I’m so glad I stumbled across it!
So glad it’s helping you! Best of luck in school!!!
Great site am enjoying your notes,will be starting A&p next semesrer and i will be using these notes.
Awesome! Best of luck….you’ll love A&P!
How do international student helped to study there;and is there scholarships for such students?
Sorry…I am not familiar with the process for international students. I would suggest just starting with a Google search for nursing scholarships. Best of luck!
Do these notes cover everything in those big textbooks? Are they comprehensive enough that I coukd use them alone?
Your site is amazing. Thank you for all the resources.
If you’re thinking of not buying or renting the book…I’d still advise doing that so you can look things up in greater detail as needed. With that said, I mainly just used my notes to study 🙂
Also, be aware that I don’t have notes for GI…it was the last unit in my summer school class and I was completely burned out by then!
Best of luck with school!
VisibleBody.com is only $25 and it’s available across platforms
Looks like a great resource. Thanks, Sarah!
I have my first exam in A&P this week I look forward to using your notes to help me study.
These notes are amazing! You don’t happen to have notes on respiration, do you? I’m going through A&P2 now, and that’s our next unit.
All the notes I have are here…I would think I have respiratory notes here somewhere!
Sadly I looked through and didn’t see them. But these are fantastic! I start my program next fall and will definitely be getting others!
They are there…I will email you a link…maybe this link is broken. Thanks for letting me know!
Can you email it ro me. I don’t see it.
What were you looking for again?
Hello. Thank you for notes for A&P! They are extremely helpful! I’m going to pass the science section of my TEAS with all of this information! Thank you again!
hello. thank you for your notes. would it be ok if i could share these notes?
All the free resources on this site are for sharing 🙂
This is great, I’ll have A and P this upcoming semester. ❤️
Hi! These notes are great! I just started my prerequisite classes and A&P is a little overwhelming at times. Dumb question but do we really have to know all the stuff discussed in this class? I’m at a crossroads at what I will need to really focus on for nursing school. I study everything to pass the class but afterwards I want to keep reviewing so it stays fresh on my mind. There is no way I can keep reviewing the whole book. Lol. Do you have any links or suggestions or which topics would be most important for nursing school?
I’ve got two posts that cover this topic! The first is titled “What to review before nursing school starts” and the other is “What to focus on in nursing school.” Here are the links…and I hope this helps!
I just want to thank you for including some yoga poses in the Joints/Skeletal Muscle notes. Brilliant.
I used to teach yoga…many moons ago!
Hi. Are the information on your notes accurate for other countries?
Ps. I’m from the Philippines, btw 🙂
I’ve never done nursing in other countries and write solely from my own perspective as a nurse in the U.S. However, physiology remains consistent regardless of where you live 🙂 As for interventions, it depends on your country or state’s parameters around scope of practice. The other thing that could vary are lab values as other countries can occasionally use different units of measurement…but the lab value is only a small component of understanding a disease condition…it’s more important to focus on the concept behind it. I do have a lot of visitors from other countries, so they must find the information useful. I hope that helps!
Hi! I was curious to know if you have any suggestions/ tips for those starting ABSN programs. I was recently accepted and start in January and I am kind of freaking out. Thank you!
Hi Sarah, it’s going to be ok…many have ventured where you are about to go 🙂 My best advice is to get SUPER organized ahead of time as there won’t be time for much of anything besides your homework, clinicals and exams once school starts. Have you checked out my nursing school prep course, Crucial Concepts Bootcamp? It will help! You can learn more here: https://straightanursing.mykajabi.com/crucial-concepts BEST OF LUCK TO YOU!!!
I don’t see urinary and respiratory system notes here, are you going to post them?
Your lecture notes are outstanding!
Sorry….if they’re not here then they are likely lost somewhere 🙁 I’m glad you found the notes helpful, though!
I am starting my pre-requisites for nursing school, I have been listening to your Podcast (they are very informative and easy to follow). I want to say thank you for making nursing topics a lot easier!
Thanks for the kind words! Best of luck to you 🙂
Hi Nurse Mo! I have just started listening to the Straight A Nursing podcast for the last few months, and I just popped onto your website for the first time, and am really excited!!!! I’m just starting out on my pre-nursing pre-requisites journey and am new to all of this, but I’ve enjoyed listening to your podcast very much and soaking in all the material! I’m also in the middle of getting certified as a medical biller and coder, but have been feeling more interested in nursing, so I’m taking the pre-reqs and see how that goes for me 🙂 For now, I just really appreciate your website and the podcast, thank you so much! I love how positive and bubbly your voice and personality are, it helps keep me motivated and positive! Thank you again so so much, and Merry Christmas!!! (as I am writing this in December 2022 🙂 )
Thanks so much for your kind words, Liz! Best of luck to you 🙂
