    I still have until september before I will be taking this class, but I am just wondering if this class can be taken simultaneously with another nursing class?
    I am taking it now with my Jr. Comp class. So, yes.

    Thoughts on taking Excellence with Mgnt/Strategic planning??? I know the new combo course is an unknown. Just curious...if 455 is just busy and not hard it might be an option???

    Is that combo class going to be a 6 credit class? Not sure how busy Excellence is - but the single management and strategic planning classes did have one of chuckster's busy-work factors associated with them. The only plus with those classes, is they were direct and to the point.

    I feel farily certain it will be a 6 credit course. How is Family Nursing? A lot of work? I so want to be done!

    Excellence is BUSY, but it's the kind of busy where you could knock out 5 assignments in 1 day. Not a whole lot of searching all over the place for info/references. You guys will breathe a sigh of relief when you get to 455….So "if" you are going to double up, I wouldn't stress about doing it w/455.

    Painfully vaque is a good way to put it!

    LOL…I think I said that in one of my post. We are so accustomed to a lot of detail, we don't know what to do w/a lack for direction.

    What's stressing you guys?

    For me, the rubic for both papers are the same. The website one states "in your own words" however, the paper still requires citations and references. So I guess I need to be careful with what I write....the Global paper sucks because, well, I am just not very interested in the assignment and with little guidance I have to figure it out myself. boo

    I guess in the other classes I got so used to using the rubic for writing my papers that this one kinda makes me do it myself...and I don't want too! Oh well. My papers are just about done anyways. I hate turning in the first papers of the mod. It always makes me nervous.

    Yes, the rubric is exactly the same for both papers and so are the learning objectives. Did you go solely by the directions or did you incorporate each learning objective into your papers?

    I'm thinking about just writing an intro. paragraph, the information they want under the directions and then a conclusion paragraph. Of course everything will be done in "true APA format" with a title page and reference page. I don't think they want us to write a paragraph about each learning objective, it doesn't sound like that. Hope this works!

    for the global paper I did use the objectives, for the website paper i followed the directions listed.

    Probably a good idea. I'm doing the website paper now, all I can say is I would rather have a lobotomy than do one more nursing class. I'm glad we'll be done June 9th!
