NRSE 4560 was actually one of the easier courses. I took it February 2013. Week Two you have to read "Tuesdays with Morrie" or watch the movie, and write a 50 point reflection paper. (The instructor also provides the movie in short segments if you don't own the book or movie.) Weeks 3-5 consist of writing a 50 point "Interview with an Older Adult" paper (week 3), an additional 20 point Evidence Based paper (week 4), and a 90 point final paper (week 5) on your "Interview with an Older Adult." Throughout the course there are additional assignments, and of course, the ever-present discussion boards. It sounds much worse than it actually was.
Just finished NRSE 4520- Health Assessment, I am so happy it was only 5 weeks! The class content was great, the multiple assignments and HESI quizzes were not- I thought I was done with NCLEX style q's. Well, I am looking forward to this class. Who else has to take the English class for the entire fall semester? Ugh.
