N4465 Vulnerable Populations (RN-BSN)

  1. 0 I'm starting this class next week...probably (still not 100% if I'm going to postpone it until the spring).

    I've heard mixed things about this class: some say it's pretty easy, others say it's a nightmare. Anyone who took it, can you fill me in on what to expect from it and how it went for you?

    And so we don't run afoul of forum policy: no specific details about tests, quizzes, etc. Just general info please so I (and others) know what we are getting ourselves into.

    Hey I'll be starting this class Monday too. The class is open now and I think I need to start now! Seem like it's going to be a lot of work.

    I ended up withdrawing...I knew I did the right thing when even my UTA advisor said she thought I was trying to do too much with school, work, etc. Work is only going to get busier for the rest of the year: holidays mean increased census in the land of psych nursing. Plus, I found and downloaded the syllabus, and saw that VP was going to be a handful.

    Good luck! I will be picking your brain about the course when you're finished

    I understand. I'll let you know how it goes. I'm taking this class by itself and I set my schedule up to be off most weekend.

    I just finished that class last 5 weeks and it wasn't quite as bad as I thought. Try to make sure you have some Mondays and/or Tuesdays off to do the assignments and you'll be fine.

    I'm starting on assignments today. I'm trying to stay at least one week ahead. Any tips for the class. PM me.

    I just started this class as well. Syllabus looks full but doable, hopefully we can give each other feedback throughout the course.

    Done some replies on the discussion board, but I just got off my 3rd straight shift so I haven't had much time for schoolwork. I'll probably start tonight and try to get it done by Wed/Thurs, have you started yet?

    I just did the DB and about to start on the assignment. Hopefully I can finish everything by Friday including the quiz.

    I finished the assignment and just took the quiz. I think I must have bought the wrong book. Haha.
