    There was a newspaper reporter at the 'review class' today.

    ...One person was taking pics, and the other person asked a couple of us questions.

    I don't even know what paper it was...I'll have to find out so I can be looking for the story. It's about the instructor shortage & the online program.
    Review class, are you talking about Psych?
    Yes, do find out what paper it was , I would like to read it also.
    I have heard nothing about THR combining with us, where have you heard that? Interesting.........
  2. by   Fun2, RN, BSN
    It may not have been THR, but it was on one of these ECC/NLC threads about one of the distance programs combining with ECC's lecture next semester.



    The paper was the Dallas Morning News, but I don't know when/if it will actually print.


    The "Review Class" is our lecture substitute. We don't get a lecture. All we get is someone reading the syllabus to us, and vaguely reviewing stuff on it, one or two case studies, and a few questions out of a NCLEX review book that are 100 X easier than test questions.

    ------All of only 2 hours per week.

    You look great. Do you always have only 5 students in class? By the way, I thought the article would turn out to be more exciting than this .

    It was lame...


    Actually there were only 7 of us there for the review. They quoted Mike, but didn't print a pic of him.

    Hey....just thought I would stop by and see what has been happening! I have survived J.B. from Parkland and lived to tell about it. We ended up with 4 people at the end of our clinical....boy were we targets! All I have to say about this semester is it seems like everything was against us. Even the ridiculous Meds Pub, which we pay for every semester, seems to have a "wrong" answer in it......and we did not get points for multiple answers. Is it true we really start next semester a week earlier than classes really start? Katie....the instructor you advised us to take IS teaching 4th. Do you know if Charleton was available for North Lake or just El Centro?

    Hope lecture is going well for you, Kendra.

    Glad you survived clinical as well.




    I really don't know my fate as far as lecture...like you said, everything has been against us. I asked for a blueprint or review because we are having to do this online. The response was something like..."Maybe in the future, there's just not time or resources to do it now."


    I don't plan to be here in the future, that's why I asked! :angryfire


    I know the powers-that-be read this just the same as y'all do, so for the record, I am not saying anything that I wouldn't say to them.


    I DON'T plan on being here in the future, as I DO want to pass this semester THIS semester! (EDIT: Of course I do plan on 1 more semester...lol)

    I think F. Y. will teach next semester. I am not sure if at NLC or ECC. If you want a stress-less clinical you need to take her class. I don't remember Charlton being offered. We had Baylor Irving, Baylor Dallas, Parkland/Doctors and a Lewisville hospital somehow offered at the very beginning of the semester. Anyway, they say those who survive J.B.'s clinical make great nurses later. Katie

    On the way in to Parkland one morning, Yang and I ran into a 4th semester ECC student. Things weren't going so well for her class. It was a bit disheartening.

    Did you start with 10 people in your clinical group and now you're down to 4?

    I'm glad that at least several students were able to tolerate JB Parkland clinical. When I took her clinicals, it became so unbearable for me, until I had to drop. I understand the concept of pushing the student to be the best they can be, but her clinical is virtually unbearable as far as self esteen is concerned.
