NURS 4465 - Vulnerable Populations (starting 8/12/13)

  1. 1 Getting an early start on the support group thread for the August 4465 class.

    I heard it's second only to Research in terms of horror level...though having just survived Research, I'm optimistic about this one--it can only be better than Research was.

    Hi Meriwhen,

    You'll be OK. Nothing and I mean nothing can even remotely compare to Research, so since you survived that, you will survive this as well. I took Research w/ you but didn't post much because I was too immersed in doing every section of every assignment every week. You know what I mean. Anyway, Vulnerable is not an easy class in that the papers are long and involved and require many many statistics regarding your specific area where you live. This just means a lot of searching on the internet and that takes a lot of time. I took it in Feb-Mar of this year, but they changed the assignments slightly since then, just FYI. So, if you read some of the posts from that term, you may wonder why things aren't quite the same in your class. The questions on the quizzes are not particularly intuitive but luckily they are not worth that much in the way of % toward your final grade. PM me when you get into it if you want and I'll see what I can do to help.

    I'll be in the class too. Not looking forward to it since I am taking it with adult, and I have never taken two nursing classes at once. These will be my last two before Capstone. I am excited to be almost done.

    I read your horror story. I think you've had the worst experience in that class of anyone I've heard about to date

    Hi MBrickle, if you work full time I would strongly advice against doubling up on vulnerable and health assessment... They both are very very time consuming and require an ridiculous amount of writing... Vulnerable population papers range from 8-42 pages each week and Health assessment paper range from 4-8 pages per week, assignments are due Thursday at 8 am.

    I would definitely reconsider those two together. I work part-time and had vulnerable overlap with history 1311. I thought I was going to have to be medicated at some point. Holistic health is not so bad, but a lot of writing. Vulnerable is….I don’t think I can use the words I want on this forum to describe it.

    I'll be in this class. Darn! I was hoping this one wouldn't be so bad. But from the comments... I agree though, if we made it through research, we'll get through this! At least we'll have control of our own lives! I'm wrapping up Leadership - not bad. See you all in class - or not. We'll be too busy writing papers evidently.

    Vulnerable was time consuming but not really hard. I took this class by itself and work full time.

    Never claim the class was hard "time consuming" yes. It all depends on the geographical area you live in and wether or not you honestly survey 10 city block in each direction ( N,S, W, E). Look at the previous thread for this class majority of the student hand over 38 pages. You took it alone... I took it with leadership and Texas history working 40hrs a week. I manage to get all A's but it was the worst 5 weeks of my life, and something I would NEVER do to myself again!!!

    Sorry - I meant vulnerable and holistic care of the adult, not assessment.

    I also live in Boston proper so I'm hoping that gives me a bit of an edge in information collection as its a major city versus a suburban, or even rural town as I'm sure some people are from.

    I'm thinking that I'm going to order my books tomorrow and start on some of the work that I can (or reading) this week as history and poli sci ended this week so all I am juggling is health promotion next week before a week off. Are the syllabi online for these courses? I haven't checked yet...if not, would someone who took it recently send me one?

    Already dreading research...

    Those two are definitely doable...the syllabus is online. Boston should be very interesting... I don't believe you really get the depth of vulnerable population if it done in the suburbs. I did mind on Baltimore city and I really enjoy it just wish I had more time. The syllabus is also online, good luck.
