    I didn't think there was a forum for Family Nsg Spring 2013. Glad I found you guys. Better late than never. Once again, I'm frustrated with these courses. Directions clear as mud! I have two more after this and I'm done. Can't wait.

    Week 2 grades are in and I believe, I have my first nit-picky TA. I'm not impressed. I guess I should count my blessings I've not encountered this bloodhound before. Anyone else in section 7 know who I'm talking about?

    I don't think I have had a nit-picky TA yet. So far grading has seemed fair and this is my third nursing class. What kinds of things are they picky with? I just want to be prepared because I know my time will come. :-)

    Yup. It's official. I have the APA nazi. No "A" for you!....

    Responded to the required elements of the assignment. Reply posts are thoughtful and scholarly. APA/format/grammar - capitalization errors in article titles; Hartman's is incorrectly used as possessive several times; incorrectly written 5; contractions; case study quotes need to be properly cited and referenced (-5)

    I have (not I've) had an A in every nursing class since I started in Oct 11. I have never had this much trouble. I should never have doubled up in classes. I would like to see the mark ups you know? Learn from my mistakes. If thes %#$^&ing DB posts are going to be as long as &^%^&^ papers, then show us the write ups like if it were a paper. SO FRUSTRATED...

    So what is the possessive form of Hartman? How do you cite the case study?

    A student in my group has been kind enough to point out errors in other people's posts. So if our TA would per chance miss any errors, the student has made sure to let her know!

    I can usually muddle my way through these assigments, but I am clueless this class. I am doing my case study for week 3. After reading a couple of my classmates DB, I wonder why my family is so different. 2 of my case study questions had nothing to do with the case study family.&^*)&^)&*^ Oh well. I e-mailed TA yeaterday about it and still no answer. Are we suppose to get a different story every week. We have the same case study family evry week.?? Clueless!
    Anyone else with that problem?

    You should have the same case study family but additional information that is sent to you or available in announcements about your case study family for weeks 3 & 4.

    That was in response to Radmom. Sorry, I am still so blown away.
