Starting this family nursing course in January and from what I hear this is going to be a hard course. I am looking for the support of my fellow class mates, or any hints from those who have previously taken the class. Thank... Read More

    Seems that several of us will be finishing up soon. After this class I'll be taking Community in February and 4600 in March and then I'm finished. SOOOO looking forward to being done. There are still no details for the lab/clinical component for 4600 and I wish they would get on the ball with those details. I wish everyone all the best in this Family class!
    I read someone had posted that they got a response to an email or something saying it will be more of a "project" than an actual clinical. It will be able to be done at your place of employment if you work, or somewhere in the community if not. They are doing it more as a lab is my understanding.

    I heard family was a horrible class, but this doesn't look that bad to me. Maybe it gets worse as you are in the assignments?



    Ohhh so there is group work that makes it so horrible. I guess I didn't read very well.

    Maybe they made some changes since summer when it was offered. I thought I read something about winter last year having quizzes, and we have none of those. But even though we are placed into groups, it's simply for the case studies. The work is individual. Maybe I'm just getting used to the program and expect the classes to be a lot of work, but it seems to be about what all the classes run, which is a lot as it's all crammed into 5 weeks. It is considered an accelerated program though. We're doing a 3 or 4 credit class in 5 weeks. Guess we will see how it goes!

    The midterm and the final are what makes Family so hideous. Group projects can be a challenge but I was fortunate to have a good bunch to work with. Just do your part - and comment and add suggestions to what your group members post and you will be fine for that part of the class. Hopefully the instructor has changed and there has been a tremendous adjustment in what is covered on the midterm and final exams. Good luck.

    I didn't see anything about a midterm and a final. Also none of the group things talk about actually working with members other than normal discussion board posts. Maybe I'm missing something?

    That's what I was told too...it's going to be a "project" .

    So for the definition of Family do you think we need a total of 4 references (2 in text and 2 extra) or just a total of 2. Not good that I am so confused already. and DidiRN how did you find out who your TA is, I still have no correspondence.
