Any ADN-BSN programs without ridiculous papers? - page 23

Taking my 1st ADN-BSN class. Thinking of dropping it with only 1 week left. 1st class and already a 6 to 8 page paper. A concept analysis of 1 of the following 4 words: Caring, Hope, Trust, or... Read More

    OMG AGREED. We did group poster projects and they used them at a health fair for the hospital we were associated with, for the nurses to come over and claim some CEU's. Hey, no problem, I love being a presenter for continuing education classes. Only thing is, I used to get paid for it as a lawyer, so I really don't want to be your free provider now. And the glue makes my fingers sticky.
    I recall one Saturday getting a post here from one freaked out long-time administrator and seasoned nurse who, in planning for a career day presentation overlooked the poster assignment, and was getting some disapproving arched brows from other nurses who had all completed their posters. Several of us craft-minded tried to help with ideas for cute shapes made from catheter-tubing. The saddest part was the level of distress the lady was expressing over the silly thing.

    Sounds like the golf ball assignment is a relative of the "you can't have empathy unless you go through the same thing the patient does" school of thought which is expressed in things like tying people to chairs and having their classmates feed them, and the like, bed baths, etc . . .or the giving high-school students a 5 pound bag of flour to lug around for a week so they know what it's like to be a parent (these now replaced by realistic and expensive manikins) in our schools)

    No, there wasn't really anything about nursing involved. It was a cultural diversity class and most of the other students were not even nurses.

    I only had to write one paper in my ADN to BSN program. This was a "trans-cultural" nursing class; I had to write about the Eskimo population, which was OK, except I lived in Florida! We don't get too many Eskimo here. I made an A+ on it, though. I had the fortune of pairing with a classmate who went to nursing school in Alaska.

    I have always wondered about this.

    Maybe you won't have to write ridiculous papers for a BAN?
    Bachelor of Arts in nursing?

    Sure there are. Some of the private catholic universities in the upper midwest grant the BAN, not the BSN. Here is one such school.

    Good deal for you! May I ask what program that was?

    I am reading this with great interest because as I am at the end of my semester, I have lots of papers due in the next week. And I am doing an ADN program. Papers are a part of college. They are not my most favorite thing in the world to do, but it does get me sitting down and thinking. You have to organize your thoughts and plan out your paper, you do some research, and review everything before turning it in. I think writing papers do have a lot to do with nursing because you write out care plans, you need to be organized, and you need to think. All of these qualities go into writing a paper. They are just time consuming which is something I don't think people like.

    I would love to hear what programs all of you are in. My RN to BSN program has me typing 3-4000 word paper per week, taking a test weekly and posting twice in discussions 500 word minimun with references. By the sounds of it 2 or 3 papers a term would be amazing.

    I don't mind writing papers. I can whip out 8-10 pages easy. So far the quizzes are horrible-they use all NCLEX reject questions that have no right answer. I don't like the busy work of looking up this website or another. We have video posts, so it's fun to have faces to put with names.

    I just spoke to a rep at Achieve Test Prep. It is an online school that uses credit by examination. There is no group or homework assignments at all. I am looking for insight if anyone has attended this program.
