    I feel your pain... we are basically reading a book and doing papers, NO teaching going on. except self teaching.
    I agree they should have added the info about case studies in the original class list of resources. I felt it unfair to "oh and by the way you have to get these case studies too". I did buy it and I can't see really how necessary they are. We just have to do the assessment and follow what is in the book. We are not reporting on the case studies as far as I can see.
    I noticed that it's suddenly on the list of required textbook purchases now. I know it wasn't there last week, because I was on there looking for a IBSN for a textbook for Spring semester and it wasn't there.

    I feel so overwhelmed and confused. Feel like I don't understand the assignments for week two. Looking for clarification. You just do the case studies online as practice for the assessment you will be doing on someone? The Intergumentary assignment is the one I really don't get. Complete a focused health and physical assessment using chapters 12 through 20 I think it is suppose to be 12 and 20. So I think you start on page 207 in chapter 12 and ask all the subjective data which goes to page 210. Then you go to the objective data on 211 which you physically assess.

    Step 4 says to use the focused history information from your Jarvis textbook chapters 12 and 20 to collect history data from the client. Is that the subjective data or the objective data????What page is that on???

    Step 6 Conduct a physical examination of the integumentary, peripheral vascular and lymph system using the physical assessment guidelines provided in chapters 12 and 20 is that the objective starting on page 211???


    Are we turning in all that??? Or are we just using that to write the evidence based actual/risk health problems and the narrative???

    So you can see that I am lost?? Any help would be appreciated.

    Here is my understanding of it. Start at page 12, go through and do the subjective and objective exams in each through chapter 20. Make notes. Underline any abnormal findings, then write a note in regards to the assessment. It sounds like more than it actually is. I went through and did it last night. Haven't wrote the note yet, but I did it on my husband. What I'm not sure is how to write the note. Are we charting by exception? Supposed to say no evidence of edema, etc? They say write it by referencing the notes they provided. But they don't actually give a sample, they just show examples of bad notes.

    How can you put reference in with a health assessment. That is stupid and does not make any sense at all.

    I had no clue either. I just put a reference for the book and cut my losses. I'll just take the point loss, since I asked for clarification and got none.

    Well...I was going to take every opportunity to NOT recommend OU RN to BSN program, loud and clear after I finished in the spring. Looks like the Ohio Board of Nursing has done it for me.

    As for week two...I have not looked at the assignments yet...but I will be sure NOT to turn in any work early in the week and wait until Sunday after this has been hashed out by the TA's and the professors who are not available.

    We are the guinea pigs once again.

    I meant Chapter 12, not page.

    What do you mean about the Board of Nursing?

    So too late for this to even count, but this was on the Outreach FB page. Someone emailed the professor since the TA was no help. The response makes no sense. Since this wasn't included anywhere in the instructions. Regarding what to reference for the Assessment assignment.

    ""In text references would be used when you prioritize your problem list. For instance, what does the literature say about your prioity problem, why is it a problem, how prevalent is the problem"

    Shaking my head. I was wondering if there should have been more to the prioritizing of the problem list. I really hope that we do not suffer in our grading for lack of organization on their part.

    I'll be curious to see if ANYONE put more into it than just putting them in order. I did it exactly as the sample showed. That is more than lack of communication and organization, thats downright no instruction whatsoever indicating that.
