    I found it stated that it has to be taken during your last "term or semester" at OU. So as long as it's within the last couple classes now I guess it's ok.

    Heard it's a LOT of busy work, no quizzes though. Check out the current thread on Excellence (if that's the course you're referring to). There should be some good info there. I think it's doable if you have time to devote to it.

    There is a great deal of busy work in Excellence.

    Through the third week, we've had to do six DB postings, with at least two references each and requiring two responses for each posting, one 5-6 page paper and two case studies of 2 -3 pages - all submitted through Safe Assign (an aside - I finally got a zero SA matching!). Week 4 seems relatively easy - one DB and one short paper. Haven't looked at Week 5 yet - it will be my last in the program though.

    So my take is that it's doable with another course but you have to have the time.

    Taking this class with stats. chuckster is correct - busy work. But nothing that is too taxing. To the point that I hate DB's but they aren't difficult to write. This week is contemporary health concerns. Just finished one DB initial post. Now getting ready to write the 2nd one for the week. Meh - as far a nursing classes go, it is a gift!!!

    Oh...you should be. I would be jumping for joy!! However, I do NOT plan on going to grad school. I was old when I started nursing school ADN...I am so done now. I would like to become a chef...but afraid of getting FAT! Anything, but nursing lately.

    I wish you all the best! Which school will you be attending?
