This course teaches students about reproductive biology and the eleven major organ systems of the body. During lecture charts, models and demonstrations and laser discs will be used to help explain concepts. Students enter this course with a strong foundation on the organization levels of chemistry, cells and tissues. They examined cells and tissue sections and learned the skeletal system during their first semester. This course focuses on the organization levels of organs, organ systems and the organisms. This second semester course on anatomy and physiology builds upon the information from the first semester course with an emphasis on upper organization levels of the human body. During laboratory, students will dissect and identify all organ systems in both a cat and a fetal pig. Students will learn skills in dissection; knowledge in testing physiological functions and identifying specific tissue types for each system. These skills directly apply to their work as nurses.
