    When doing your assessments, make sure you put your techniques. For example, palpation of the thyroid gland, was it an anterior or posterior approach? I just thought of that when rereading my objective assignment. Don't know if it is a point deduction or not, but wanted to share and get a second opinion . I have never used the words-denies, bilateral, symmetrical or noted so much in my entire life!

    Thank you everyone for the encouragement! I just got back my grade for the subj assign only, I did not include the 24 hr food intake and missed an "A" on the COLDSPA part. I am very thankful that I still was able to get an A on at least one assignment, I am not being too positive about the obj one. Now, do we have to do a dietary intake for every assignment or it was only for the first one? It seems that at the end of this class we will have to put all the parts together of the assessment and I think we are going to have to fix whatever we missed the first time. Is that correct or read too much into it? Thank you for your help in advance.

    The best to you all,

    Rosi

    Amy,

    Thank you for the suggestions. You're right we better be safe than sorry. These assignments are bringing me back to nursing school all over again.

    Amy one of the student asked in our Q & A "Do we need a COLDSPA for each section in the subjective assessment?" and the coach answered "Yes this is required as per template instructions."

    Just wanted to make you all aware.

    That is so strange because someone asked that in our group and the coach said we must include one per subjective assignment, not one for each section. The letter sent at the first week also states at least one COLDSPA for each subjective assignment. I don't think someone could have a complaint in every system unless they were hypochondriac. Lol..

    I remember seeing one too in the 1st week. I just sent her a message. Will let you know her response.

    I wouldn't hurt to put as much info as possible Amy. I feel like I'm being to wordy with the assessments too, but I don't think they're going to take points off the work being too extensive.

    Amy,

    Do you think we have to type down the name of every single lymph node on the objective part?

    Regards,

    Rosi

    I agree! Wordy and somewhat repetitive, but they count off for omissions not extras. I hope...

    I did, but I grouped some together. Like the ones I could palpate were group into one sentence. The ones I could not feel (deep cervical & posterior cervical) were put together in one sentence. Example- "Deep and posterior cervical nodes non-palpable and non-tender". Just mention as much as you can, that is what should count. I am already sick of this assignment and hate eyes & ears!

    I don't know what happened, but my discussion grade in wk 1 was changed from 50% to 100%. Did anyone else realize this?
