Hello to all. I have a question that I wanted to know from anyone else in this class. I have been completing APA papers all year long and this is the first class that the TA is wanting an abstract. She is very picky about my... Read More

    I found the instructions very confusing. Maybe I need to slow down and read them again (and get rid of my headache first lol). I just think giving us a flipping week to find someone is outrageous. They knew for a while that this class was going to require some kind of "project". I was told on more than one occasion that this was not going to really be a big deal. I should have known better than believe that.
    Hopefully this is all we have to do and not on top of a bunch of unrelated readings and papers. I may have to postpone this class until March because of this.
    I have no idea how in the h*ll they expect those of you starting this class in a week to secure a preceptor that first week. I mean, COME ON! With limited details to boot. Not to mention that most people have work schedules and/or families and may have to scramble to get life coordinated with an addition of 21 preceptor hours. That's an awful lot to ask of people in one week. UGH! DiDiRN, if you postpone this class until March it would be totally understandable. Do you have any other classes left?

    I'm confused about them too. The emails were not clear at all as to what the project entails. I take this in march also.

    You're right Michelemybell, I read through the email and the all the attachments again, and the info is not very clear. I get that we will be doing some project/paper related to one of the QESN's, but I'm not sure what role the preceptor will be playing in this. Like, what exactly is the preceptor supposed to be doing, don't they need some guidelines? Is it more of a shadowing experience where we follow around a higher educated nurse and use what we learn from that experience to complete our project? I'm just not sure. I would imagine there will be a lot of people asking questions about this and there will have to be more details given.

    Thanks! So you will be the experimental group and we'll be the first revision group. This sounds stressful. I'm willing to do whatever as the last nursing class to be done!

    I am so ready to be done. Unfortunately, Leadership will be my last class. I am not too worried about this preceptor stuff. At this point it seems fairly informal since it is a new requirement.

    Has anyone got anymore clarification for this? I am supposed to be taking this class in March as well, but we are moving out state end of March/April first. This royally P's me off. I am now going to have to wait to take the class because there is absolutely no way for me to do this.

    Before you drop the class call the school of nursing and tell them you need specifics now. Maybe you could get a mentor from where you work now that would do phone consultation with you. Without knowing the expectation, it's hard to know what to do.

    I found out too late that I could have taken 4600 starting Feb 18. They stress 4600 as the last class so I planned accordingly, but when I asked my adviser, she said I could take it second to the last. At that point, it was really too late. Maybe it's a good thing. I need a mental break.
