    Stressing out over this genogram and ecomap. Going to try and get started on those tonight due to work schedule over the weekend. Took week 4 quiz made an 80 and proud of it. I am getting burned out on this class.

    I hope vulnerable populations is not quite as time intensive but my guess is that it will be. At least it will be different information.

    Hi Rosemary,

    Yeah, quiz 4 was tricky. I did the genogram and ecomap a few days ago when I had time, bec i have to work all weekend, too, starting tomorrow. used MS Word and they turned out fine. if you are going to use that also, i recommend drawing the genogram out on a piece of paper first before you start the computer stuff. also, don't draw the squares and circles too big bec you will not have enough space to fit it all in.

    later.

    I cannot wait for this class to be over. Every week my coach seems to have changed her expectation. Week three is the first time I had a "well done." Now that I finally know what my coach expects I can go back and begin editing my assignments for the final. This class should have been the 10 week class as opposed to transitions.

    I took vulnerable populations 2 semesters ago. It's not that bad. You look at the area you live in, or another area and assess what is going on in the zip code, or area you choose. I chose an area with low poverty and low crime. You drive around the area, make assessments of the population. I visited a woman's shelter, and interviewed the director. Really not that bad of a class. Get's you get out in the community.

    Me too! I heard that it is crazy too! You get into groups to answer research questions and if you have a slacker or someone who drops out of your group, ya'll have to catch up the slack

    No assessments But you do have to conduct a life review with an elder (over 70) who isn't a relative.

    Well, it could be a relative, but they strongly prefer that you not use one. If you really want to use family members, you will have to request permission from the instructor first...and he/she may or may not give it.

    Rest of the class: lots of readings, lots of videos. Quizzes on the slightly tougher side though and they are closed-book. Nowhere near as bad as 3425 though.

    Seriously....my assessment summary is paper is 40 pages long and I am still not finished. I wish I could just turn it, take the final and not look back.

    Thank you so much for the heads-up Meriwhen. It allows me a little sigh of relief.

    took holistic care last 5-week segment, along with 2 other classes. very easy class. no assessments at all. no book; lots of readings from articles they assign and videos; quizzes are a bit tricky but not bad. assignments are short with one paper but it is based on an interview you do with someone over 70, so you are basically putting the info you learned in the interview into APA paper form. DB's are easy, but you do have to reply to 2 other posts by a certain day.
    as i said, i took 3 classes all together and didn't have much time to devote to this one but it was never a problem. the worst that occurred to me was that weekly quizzes were due every Mon @ 0800, so after working Fri, Sat, and Sun, I had to come home that night, review the articles and take the quiz while being pretty tired. all in all, easy to get an A.
