i don't know how they are going to do them when you start (i mean they could completely change it around). but when i was in block 1 (spring 2012) we had a health assessment class. we met one day a week, and talked/practiced what ever we were learning that week and then wrote up our findings (they were not graded). we got to know our class mates really well, enjoy yourself and it will be better. we had a total of three papers that were basically wright ups on our head to toe examinations. pretty much writing what you practiced in class and we turned them into our in class instructor. don't stress it, you will do fine. the online portion of that class, consisted of multiple choice questions from the readings. we used a book by jarvis. i got the ebook through elsevier. lots easier than lugging around a heavy book. also when you are taking the tests on line, we could use our book, and pageburst (elsevier's ebooks) has a great search option, so i didn't have to go throughout the book, flipping like mad. i was not and ebook textbook person before and i swear by them now, and wish pageburst would offer every textbook. (it's nice because you can do a general search. for example i can type in diabetes, and it will look through all my ebooks for me and show me where it is. saves crazy amount of time. i got the bundle books through the book store, so a lot of my books came both physical copy and e book. i highly recommend it, it's like google for your textbooks and spend some time getting used to it, it will be a life saver.)
ok the on line classes we are taking this summer, gerontology, palliative care and nursing research, are keeping us busy, but so far haven't killed me (it's only week 2, so there is still time). we have a lot of posts, responding to posts, papers, and stuff like that. but remember we are not putting a man on the moon, if you got this far you can do this. if you can do 201, 202 and micro online, and make sense of it, you will be fine.
please don't stress. it was that fear of the unknown that used to drive me crazy. if you need something to keep you busy in the mean time my block 1 teacher recommended a book:fundamentals success: a q&a review applying critical thinking to test taking (davis's q&a succes)

i of course never had time to read it during block one, because i was in block one, but my teacher swears by it. it talks about how to understand the questions, they are written weird especially if you have never seen them before.
you will do fine, i found that most of what i stressed about before school, and the first couple of weeks, was in retrospect very minor.
