    Hi,
    Care of the Vulnerable populations was the most challenging of all the classes I have taken and many students also complained about this class. It was intense, detailed and involved some type of community projects so it was pretty time consuming. The textbook was of little help when it came to the quizzes. To me, I thought the quizzes were a bit difficult but that's just me. Though I ended up doing well in the class, it was my least favorite class.

    I haven't struggled with any class except vulnerable populations which I"m currently taking. I flat out failed the first quiz....haven't failed any quizzes to date. Can't figure out where they came up with the questions. I have to finish the second quiz today and have no idea what to study. The amount of work involved in a single week is unbelievable. Plus the previous weeks work wasn't turned back until after I turned in the next week so I couldn't even try to accommodate the errors. I can't wait to get finished and just pass this silly class.

    I FELT EXACTLY THE SAME WAY. Have you taken Nursing Research? If so, how was it?

    I am also in vulnerable pop right now and it is so time consuming! I am really struggling to get everything done. I am taking it with holistic care of the older adult which is much easier but I would still recommend taking V.P. by itself. I was going to take Research and Leadership&management next time but now I worried about doubling up again.

    What does everyone know about Capstone?

    Oh brilliant me is taking the two together!!! It has to be the worst 5 weeks ever. Nursing research is a GROUP PROJECT CLASS. The entire thing is done as a group. It is making me climb the walls. I hate depending on others. My group rarely emails and I'm praying for it to end.

    Group Project Class, interesting concept to say the least. Are you allowed to choose the members in your group or are they randomly selected?

    Sounds like an awful class! I am dreading it already!! I just need to suck it up and take it next so I can move on. At least you are almost done with the program!

    I am also taking Research and Vulnerable Populations at the same time (right now) and I am doing well with my Research class although I hate research and I am not doing well in the Vulnerable Populations course. They require you to do a lot of work and the assignment takes sooooo long. The quizzes are stupid and have nothing to do with what you're actually reading. I have not been nervous about any other course during this program except this Vulnerable Populations class. I don't know what to do to do well.
