Ohio University RN-to-BSN Program - page 155

Since it seems that there's quite a bit of interest, I'm attempting to start a new thread devoted exclusively to the OU on-line RN-BSN program that will hopefully build on the comments on assorted... Read More

    I've been lurking. Hi everyone, I'm Tracie. Six classes to go in the Ohio U program. Have question for vets of the program. What do you think about doubling up on Diversity and Health Assessment. I just found a list of course offerings through Summer 2014/2015. I need to either double up or change my schedule this November or my completion will be delayed. Thanks for any input.

    My Blackboard shows two old Epic classes. Makes me nervous. It doesn't show the class I'm due to start Monday.

    Mine was like that also. The class will not show up until the professor opens it. Not to worry

    So far I have not had any in the core nursing courses. Only three more to go I did have two in my nutrition class and took them at my local public library for free.

    The actual nursing courses do not have proctored exams. Some of the elective courses such as statistics will have them.

    Oh wow! That is great! I didn't know exams could be taken at public libraries. That is good to know. I was thinking I needed to go to the local community college. I hope that since the classes have changed to five week classes that there continues to not be proctored tests needed.

    Thank you sooo much! I just found out my local library is set up for proctoring and best of all it's free!

    All classes are now on Blackboard, not Epic. Mine is not on there either.

    My Nutrition class was up last Sunday, and boy am I glad! I have put in soooooo many hours doing the first 5 modules it goes pretty in depth for an Intro to Nutrition class, or atleast I think so. My Nursing class (4510), was posted Friday night around 9:30, and also I am thankful I have got almost the first 2 assignments for week 1 done, I'm happy that they re-visited the APA format because I needed a refresher although I still feel unsure with some of my answers LoL Good Luck everyone! Im taking these two classes together and statistics the next 5 week and I have learned from my mistakes (being this is the 1st online classes for me ever!) that I will not double up again after the next 5 weeks!

    Hi Everyone!
    I just started OU's online BSN completion program and am amazed that I made it through the first week. I originally graduated from an AAS nursing program in 1989 and now feel like I've been dropped in a foreign country and can't speak or write the language. I'm taking Nutrition 1000- not bad. The professor gives explict instructions, as well as helpful tips and everything is pretty straight forward. There is quite a bit of information to cover, but it's not awful. The Nursing 4510 class is quite another story... I feel like my head is going to explode. Every time I try to do the readings and assignments/ postings, I feel like a complete idiot. I sit in front of the computer, with that horrible APA manual on my lap- staring alternately at it, the assignment, the TA's instructions (never the same as the instructions in the posted assignment by the way), and the numerous books we're supposed to be reading.Then I start to hyperventilate & shake...Somebody... Anybody... HELP! What is the deal with this APA thing? That APA Manual is riduculous and the volume of information on OWL is overwhelming. My "student success coach" called me once and all she could say was "Oh... Gee...I'm Sorry..." I've asked several friends about APA formatting software. The responses have ranged from "Of course. Get whichever one you want. That's why they exist. Why would you want to struggle so much? It's not about the formatting of the paper. It's about what you write. My school recommends that we use XXX program." -TO- Ushering me into the med room, looking over her shoulder, like the FBI was tailing us: "Noooooooooo. You can't do that. It's against the rules. It's academic misconduct. You'll get expelled. They can telllllllllllllll if you're using one of those." PS- all my friends attend other schools, not OU. Did I mention that I've ended up doing all my postings to the discussion boards 4, 5 or 6 times each? The recommended Mozilla Firefox browser keeps crashing and erasing everything!!!!!!!
    I welcome ANY helpful tips that anyone can offer!!!!!!!!!!!
    Thanks in Advance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hang in there! I don't know if it's academic dishonesty to use an apa software, I don't recall reading anywhere that it is. I used it and at first liked it but now I find it annoying and don't use it anymore. It was initially helpful to me because I didn't know MS Word at all when I started the program. Now that I do I'd rather format it myself. I go to Purdue Owl website for APA help and have rarely used the books that were required. I hadn't written a college paper since 1984...it's frustrating at first but stick with it, you'll catch on! And keep in mind too that there is some adjustment from te instructors regarding Blackboard, it's the first time a lot of them are using it.
