    I just took the ECON final, Her Own Catalyst RN i wonder if we were in the same class. The final felt better than the mid-term, but its worth so many points that it can really impact your grade. I've had all A's through out the program but I don't think its gonna happen in ECON. I know I didnt give it my all because I'm really felling burn-out.

    I felt the final was really difficult. The essays were easy, but I struggled with some of the multiple choice from the past 4 weeks (although this is probably because I really struggled with the information for the last four weeks). I'm in the same boat as you Charley, I probably will not manage to have an "A" after the final. We'll see, best of luck to you!


    P.S. I really didn't enjoy the live lecturer. (I loved the Stat's live lecturer). I thought she wasn't very helpful and kept responding to people's "typed" in comments..so out of nowhere I would hear her say "No, Jenny..yes Mark" blah blah, and she was confusing me! She also often said one thing but meant something else (ie said aggregate supply, but meant aggregate demand), and this was really frustrating for me who was struggling to begin with. I put all that in the survey. My individual instructor was kind, and tried to explain things the best way she could, but I still struggled lol It seems to be the general consensus.

    Very nervous about starting at Chamberlain on Monday the 24th. NR351..I chickened out last year....I am 53yo. Can I do this? I only work part time and plan on one course at a time at least in the beginning....

    I started at Chamberlain for the BSN in Sept 2008--I was 56 at the time, and had a lap chole the same day class started. I graduated October 2010 with GPA 3.93. You can do it!

    Yes, you can! Chamberlain in a wonderful program. I graduated in June of 2010 and am now in my second year of a NP program and Chamberlain completely prepared me for grad school. One course at a time is a excellent way to do it. It will change how you view yourself as a nurse. It made me very cognizant of the need for nurses to be change agents and not just clock punchers. Best of luck to you!

    You can do it! I started July 2009 during a cross country move and finished in Feb 2011. About 1 1/2 years for me.

    I enjoyed Statistics. I watched the recordings of the live lecture so that I could start and stop when I needed to. I learned a lot in Economics but it took a little more effort.

    Hi all! Started Chamberlain last July, and have to say I'm pretty happy with my experience so far. They took the maximum number of credits from my first bachelor's degree, so I only have 32 credits to do to complete my BSN.

    I've just finished Informatics and Economics. Informatics was good, but you guys are right, Economics was a total PIA! Final grades haven't been posted yet, so I'm unsure of how I did on that course. The thing is worth a whopping 260 pts!

    I'm just starting Evidence-Based Practice now. Looking through its syllabus during preview week made me nervous. If I hadn't had to study for the Economics final last week, I would've started one of the papers! Has anyone taken this class yet? Any advice?

    EBP isn't too bad. Three of the weeks are reading the same two studies and identifying the different parts of the research. The other two papers are just annotated bibliographies of 7 articles that pertain to your topic. One paper is 3 articles and the other is 4 articles. Don't get worried! It is a bit of writing, but in my book it was much easier than writing a complete research paper.

    I got an A in Econ! Don't know how I did it! If I could do it, so can you! I love Chamberlain!

    ..and so far, I'm really enjoying Intro to the Humanities as well!
