    Oh, and also are you guys using the textbook to answer the questions or just the lab manual.
    For Example:
    Family History
    Hypertension?
    Metabolic/growth problems?

    is that all you will be answering for the Family history portion? or should we be expanding using the textbook?

    sorry if my questions are confusing. i'm confused.

    thank you again, all of you.

    I do believe that the subjective is the textbook and the objective is the lab manual, it states it in the assessment paper, figured this out last night!

    Take biol 3309 when you can! Just found out that I have to have it and it is full for jan and march. I heard to take 3425 by itself.

    Use as much expanded info as possible, like no tattoos noted. I used both books to help with assessments just to make sure nothing would be missed. Short hand is accepted and your spell-check will be going crazy. Incomplete sentences will abound, like “denies pain, cough, and numbness.” But only do the assessments that are asked for.

    ScarletFire,

    Hey, did you say that you have completed week #2 assignments. I was wondering if we use the same past medical history and family history including 3 generations that we did in week one assignments. Do we change it? Hope I am wording my question so it makes sense. Thanks

    HI!!! I'm so thankful to this forum. Quick question for you guys, in the subjective data portion, under PAST HISTORY, for History of Pain and Treatment. Should we do a COLDSPA if our client has a past history of pain?
    Hi Mansi,

    good question. I think we do a COLDSPA for current symptoms only, rather than history. not sure why i feel this way, though. couldn't find an explanation listed anywhere, but the Sample Subj Data Collection uses one for Current Symptoms. Plus, the examples in the book seem to be for current problems. this is what i am doing.

    I just finished week one assignments, and test. Like everyone has said, there is no guidance. I even emailed my coach and got reply of its in the example, good luck! I guess that we will have to wait and see how they grade week one assignments, to have a better grasp on how to move forward in week 2. Week one test basically just covers readings from chapter 1,2,3,4,7,8

    One other notation, have a healthy client. Someone with no medical problems, no medication. Then your COLDSPA can be a headache from 5 days ago, or something simple like that.

    Hi TxMonci,
    not hard, but you do have to put in some time to study for tests and keep up with the interactive stuff on the Pearson website (worth 4% of your grade). There is a lot of material; however, much of it is familiar if you've been a nurse for a while. The tests are 50 questions in only 30 min and believe me, the time goes by fast. you have to know the answers immediately bec there is no time to ponder and consider all answers choices. i took it along with US gov and Holistic Care of the older adult. it is nice now to have those 3 classes out of the way, but i was pretty busy considering working full time as well.

    if you are taking two-5 week classes and two 8-week classes plus Literature concurrently, I want to come shake your hand. can't imagine such a schedule. is it too late to re-think this?

    hi rosemary,

    i think (again, only guessing here) that the family hx for each week's assignment pertains to the topic at hand. for example, if we are on the skin, hair, and nails section, the family history questions pertain to skin, hair, nails. When you go to the head and neck question, the fam hx questions pertain to a history of head and neck problem and so on. so we ask family history questions of our client throughout the class for each topic just as we ask our client if he/she has any current symptoms related to that particular topic. hope this info is right. i don't want to tell you the wrong thing, but this is what i think.

    i have the same AC as you do. i had her for Prof A/B as well. might as well not have an AC at all. the only answer she will ever give you for any question at any time is: good luck! after reading a million good lucks from her, it gets pretty sickening.
