NUR 330 at NAU extended campus
- 0Sep 13, '11 by kc1986Hi everyone! I was accepted into the MCC/NAU CEP for Spring 2012 I am enrolled in NUR 330 at NAU's extended campus North Valley starting September 29th. I am curious to hear from the Fall 2011 cohort who just finished NUR 330 and began Block 1 this fall. How is it going guys? Any suggestions for NUR 330 and how to be prepared for Block 1? Any details would be greatly appreciated!
- 0Sep 14, '11 by hope_fullHi KC1986,
I am in the CEP program at GCC. I will be starting Nur 330 on the 29th as well. I was wondering if you are actually enrolled in the class? When I sent an email to Stephanie she said that they would be placing everyone together, and I am still not enrolled. Did you sign up yourself, or did they do it for you? I don't want to bother her if I don't have to. I have already been accepted into NAU, so I am just waiting.
Also, did you get your books? If yes, where did you get them? And do you know if Hood's book is an ebook? (it looks like it might be)
- 0Sep 15, '11 by dgva81Hi. I'm also taking the class at the extended campus. Stephanie will enroll you only if you need to for financial reasons. I wanted to know also so I can do the payment plan. They will be enrolling us soon..keep an eye on your louie. I bought my books from a girl who already took the class in the summer. I found her on Craigslist lol. She said the class is easy.
- 1Jun 13, '12 by hope_fullBlock 1 went well. A lot of work. But you will do fine. I am in the NAU CEP. Our NAU class during block 1 was fine also. And compared to Block 1, little to no stress. I hear that Block 2 is challenging, more patho, but some of us like patho. You will like NUR 330. When we took it we had a lot of papers due. They were mostly subjective, so unless you don't have an opinion or you don't use spell check you will do fine in there as well. Just try to enjoy it. A positive attitude will make all the difference.
- 0Quote from hope_fullYeah I was thinking a lot of work. I guess I feel unsure about the "online" portion of NAU courses. I mean I took Micro, Bio 201 and 202, and other courses online so I am very familiar with the usual layout but its just not asinteresting doing it online. I really enjoy the "in person" interaction between students and Professor when doing the traditional route.Block 1 went well. A lot of work. But you will do fine. I am in the NAU CEP. Our NAU class during block 1 was fine also. And compared to Block 1, little to no stress. I hear that Block 2 is challenging, more patho, but some of us like patho. You will like NUR 330.

I considered trying to go for the ASU traditional pre-licensure but its just too expensive and I'm aiming for Graduate school so I'd like to save as much as I can. What do you think about the NAU online RN-BSN courses we will take???
I wish someone would speak up on here about how the online courses are...... :spin:Last edit by CinDRnyc on Jun 13, '12 : Reason: typo
- 0Jun 13, '12 by hope_fulli 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)
isbn-10: 0803627793 | isbn-13: 978-0803627796
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.
