    I feel like this class is a "mishmash" of subjects. We are doing health assessments.. OK and then teaching and learning styles and then BAM this week all of a sudden genetic disorders??? what????????????

    This is the first time they combined assessment and health promotion from 2 classes into 1, and so we do have a mishmash of topics. I hope they take the evaluations seriously and improve for those poor folks coming after us.

    genetics does seem a bit off topic. I looked ahead to week 5, it's another killer. 4 or assignments this time, I can't remember exactly.

    Page 2, sample physical exam. What's your take on the, add diagram of thoracic lymph nodes to use for examination purposes, piece?

    Me, I'm skipping it. Don't know what I would do for that anyhow. Find a picture from the book and copy and paste? WTH.

    I feel like all I'm doing is copying from the example assessment we were given this week. My client is my 12yo daughter who (praise the Lord) has no adventitious lung sounds, no irregular heartbeat and no lumps in her tiny little boo..This just doesn't seem right. I'm copying the form and basically saying negative negative negative. It just looks like I'm taking the easy way out. It's the schools fault for saying we have to pick clients from different age groups. I've already covered the adult and older adult. Oh well. Off to waste a few hours I go.....

    You know what else? I started at OU Oct 2011. Since this fall term started, I feel like I'm just giving them money so they can give me a degree after I put on a little show for them. The last three classes were like, "faking it". I'm playing school. Not learning a dang thing. Here I go, off to fake it once more...

    Ditto!

    I'm skipping it too. I don't know what they want.

    I have not received a PEEP from our TA either from week 3. Not one grade. frustrating because I would like some feed back before starting assignments for the next week.
    I don't have grades for week three either. I keep checking but nothing so far.

    I AM getting my grades back and they are taking points off for ridiculous things. I spent 25 hours on last week's assignment and my assessment was 28 pages long. I followed EVERY rule and handed in everything they asked for. My TA said my narrative was incorrect and I used the EXACT example on the sample they gave us. I cannot figure out what they want. I just graduated and I have taken my assignments to my college profs to look at and they are stunned by how disorganized it is. But I get dinged for it. I am SOOOOOOO frustrated

    No grades yet either. How are we supposed to learn from our mistakes if we don't get them back in time to help us with the next assignment? I know it's a lot for them to grade in a short time, but we have a lot to do in a week too. Same old double standard!

    My suggestion for the narrative summary...you do NOT do it like the sample. They never really gave us a narrative summary "per se" they want you to take what was in the sample and summarize it according to your patient in paragraph form at the end of the subjective assessment and the objective (which is the actual physical assessment.) Take what you gleaned from all of that and summarize at the end with no labels except: NARRATIVE SUMMARY. Have at least 3 paragraphs. I usually start mine something like this:

    Client is a 34 year old female who is a coal miner with c/o sore throat. She states blah blah blah. She has never been hospitalized, had surgeries or blah blah blah. etc. etc.

    OMG......Week 4 assignment is way beyond flippin crazy!!!! My TA say to put in the diagrams. One assessment is 24 pages long WTH. I guess I will copy pictures from book and paste the damn things into the form (literally). Hand writting everything since I have to print it out! What total BS. Do you all know of any Doc or NP that does assessments like these? If they did, they would take to long and get fired!

    Mine says due to blackboard being down, I am finishing up grades. Still no grade , past midnight here.
    Imagine if I submitted my assignment 2 days late with a note.. due to blackboard being down I couldn't get my assignment done on time. /Think that would fly? NOT.

    And by the way, how the heck are we supposed to fit in a diagram and submit it electronically? Can't do it unless you have a scanner.

    I posted a question about it on the Qand A board, and surprise surprise, no answer.
