    I'm in the case studies. I found skin and Mandi. All I'm finding is a bunch of flipping questions. No preview like it says in announcements. 2 hours I've been at this and gained NOTHING.
    Yeah, I didn't get anything out of it that I couldn't have gotten from the book. Most of us are working nurses and do assessments all the time anyway.

    Week 2. Finally figured out how to get into the case studies and all that jazz. Feeling VERY OVERWHELMED. High anxiety. Please point me in a good direction to start this week. Something black and white would be nice. Do we have any black and white assignments in this program anymore? Where should I start?
    Do your articles, that is pretty straight forward. Find 3 articles, summarize and add how you will use the info in a teaching plan. Got mine done this morning.

    I like how our Professor Lectures are from a stupid website. Must have taken the prof a long time to come up with her lesson plans for this course. NOT! Then you have the TA's who do not answer questions on the Q&A. That must be hard work too. Gosh almighty I have fallen out of love with this program.

    The T&A for my group literally gave the same answer word for word to multiple questions on the Q&A board. I just keep trying to remind myself this will hopefully make me appreciate any NP program I get into, because it HAS to be better than this.

    I'm driving myself bonkers with the literature review. I picked adolescent substance abuse but I cannot find journal articles on "content" -- ie, what exactly am I teaching them? Most articles are why communities and schools need prevention programs. Any suggestions?

    Unless you're like me and work in the operating room ... we don't assess patients the way floor nurses do.

    I wish there was a more clear cut layout for this skin and lymph assessment??!!

    Try to focus on what it is that you would want to teach them ( is your target the adolescents or the parents) , the content, not just the topic. That might give more articles to choose from.

    I'm looking at it this way, if I had a patient and I needed to assess the skin or peripheral circulation or lymph status, what would I do? I ask pertinent questions, I check the body and I document it. That is my approach with this assignment.

    That's my problem. "Journal articles" do not provide content. I can find a ton of stuff on internet websites but not in journal articles -- let along those within the last five years ...

    I was going to try to incorporate parents and adolescents but I'm probably just asking for more work so I think I'll dwell only on the adolescents.

    I agree with thinking about what you want to teach. I picked mental health and mental illness. I'm focusing mine more towards educating on the S/S of depression and suicide. YOu can include things about the why as well, in terms of why it is important to provide this education.
