    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!

    • Nurse Mo on October 22, 2014 at 6:39 pm

      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

    • Nurse Mo on October 22, 2014 at 6:38 pm

      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.

  6. Mandi on October 24, 2014 at 10:23 pm

    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 🙂

    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.

    • Nurse Mo on July 23, 2015 at 6:20 pm

      Thanks Kenneth! Tell all your friends! 🙂

  10. Allison McGinnis on July 29, 2015 at 10:42 am

    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.
    Thanks!!!

    • Nurse Mo on August 5, 2015 at 4:40 pm

      I should have something along those lines under cardiac physiology. Let me know if you don’t find it.

  11. Brianna R on August 19, 2015 at 7:17 pm

    I just started A&P 1 this week, so I hope these notes will come in handy!! Thank you for doing this 🙂

    • Nurse Mo on August 25, 2015 at 8:32 am

  15. patrick mwanyale ndoro on January 10, 2017 at 10:03 am

    How do international student helped to study there;and is there scholarships for such students?

    • Nurse Mo on January 14, 2017 at 4:18 pm

      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!

  16. Safana on February 11, 2017 at 8:02 am

    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.

    • Nurse Mo on February 12, 2017 at 8:47 am

      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!

  17. Sarah Rumsey on February 19, 2017 at 6:44 pm

    VisibleBody.com is only $25 and it’s available across platforms

    • Nurse Mo on February 21, 2017 at 11:12 am

      Looks like a great resource. Thanks, Sarah!

  18. Lakin Yoe on February 4, 2019 at 5:29 pm

    I have my first exam in A&P this week I look forward to using your notes to help me study.

  19. Audra on March 11, 2019 at 11:03 am

    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.

    • Nurse Mo on March 16, 2019 at 6:42 am

      All the notes I have are here…I would think I have respiratory notes here somewhere!

      • Audra on April 1, 2019 at 11:42 am

        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!

        • Nurse Mo on May 25, 2019 at 9:18 am

          They are there…I will email you a link…maybe this link is broken. Thanks for letting me know!

          • Chokmah Atarah on June 15, 2019 at 10:41 am

            Can you email it ro me. I don’t see it.



          • Nurse Mo on June 17, 2019 at 5:01 pm

            What were you looking for again?



  20. B.S. on May 7, 2019 at 12:00 pm

    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!

  21. Ana W on May 12, 2019 at 7:29 am

    hello. thank you for your notes. would it be ok if i could share these notes?

    • Nurse Mo on May 25, 2019 at 9:18 am

      All the free resources on this site are for sharing 🙂

  22. Jamaica Lopez on June 20, 2019 at 3:05 am

    This is great, I’ll have A and P this upcoming semester. ❤️

  23. Cindy on July 30, 2019 at 1:03 pm

    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?

  24. Jennifer on June 24, 2020 at 9:30 am

    I just want to thank you for including some yoga poses in the Joints/Skeletal Muscle notes. Brilliant.

    • Nurse Mo on June 28, 2020 at 11:55 am

      I used to teach yoga…many moons ago!

    • AC on April 5, 2021 at 4:44 pm

      Hi. Are the information on your notes accurate for other countries?
      Ps. I’m from the Philippines, btw 🙂

      • Nurse Mo on April 6, 2021 at 7:00 am

        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!

  25. Sarah on October 9, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    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!

    • Nurse Mo on October 12, 2021 at 10:26 am

      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!!!
