Emphasis will be placed on biological chemistry, cell biology, histology, and the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. Appropriate, relevant laboratory experiences will be employed to supplement and/or reinforce the lecture material. Dissection of preserved animal material is required. PREREQUISITES Successful completion of High School Chemistry and High School Biology taken within the last five years or the College equivalents (BIO 121, CHE 121). (Instructor should attempt to verify that student has proper prerequisites.) The student should also be fluent in English. LEARNING GOALS Overall: To provide a foundation in anatomy and physiology for courses in Nursing and other Allied Health subjects through mastery of fact and the development of application and critical thinking skills. Specifically: 1. To interrelate basic atomic structure of atoms to inorganic/organic molecular structure. 2. To understand the relationship of inorganic and organic molecules to cells of the human body. 3. To identify how cells form tissues, how tissue structure relates to function, and to identify tissue locations within the body. 4. To identify major tissue types, major muscles, and bones of the human body. 5. To integrate the above basic principles at the organ and organ system level, specifically for the integumentary, muscular, skeletal, and nervous, systems. LEARNING ACTIVITIES The course meets for six (6) hours each week. The majority of the time will be spent in lecture, the remainder in the laboratory. Please feel free to contact any full-time A & P faculty member with concerns or questions.
