    I assumed the same, but got confused why all four techniques were mentioned in the rubric. I have an email out to coach, I'll let you know if WE DO NEED to include the others. I am kinda with you, this doesn't seem as bad as I expected so I am anticipating a lot of nit picky grading. I guess we'll see!

    And...what's up with the example assigment?? An elderly oral assessment?? This doen's even pertain to our assignment. I don't know if I am looking at the wrong thing or what! Annoying.
    Hi,
    i know what you mean about the examples. i misunderstood them at first and thought that we had to have an elderly client AND a woman of childbearing years in addition to our regular client and had moment of panic until i figured it out. i agree. the examples are worthless to us.

    so glad to have this forum to meet and discuss things, though. you guys are the best. can we meet for a glass of champagne when this is all over?

    I've had Miss Good Luck as a coach in the past, so I was not really expecting anything from her. The way I see it they collect $1000/class x 300 students That should give me more than a 30 min video and a few good lucks from a coach! Online education is just a sweat shop, money maker for the schools. I've become a master at creative BS.

    Middlesister,

    "Miss Good Luck"....LOL! that is funny. thanks for the laugh today. completely agree w/you re: distance learning. it is a cash cow for the school and the students pay w/ blood, sweat, and tears along with $$$.

    Hey everybody, I have submitted my week #1 assignments where it says Submit and under that it says safe/assignment. Do I have to submit it anywhere else or does that also go to our AC for grade. Basically do I have to submit it twice or just under where it says Submit and safe/assignment.

    Thanks. Hope this isn't confusing.

    I hope I never get Miss Good Luck! I don't know how these highly educated people can develop such rediculous assignments and asinine instructions. They're illogical and unreasonable. My coach said that they tweak this course every semester because it is so confusing.

    I am wondering what I am going to do with next weeks assignment, considering my patient does not have any of those things in her family medical history.

    Did you all make citations?
    The textbook gives you example questions that you should ask your client, so does that solicit a citation? Because then every sentence is going to have a citation.......

    i think i'm gonna lose my mind during this because i keep second guessing myself.

    i think i have Miss Good Luck as well....irritating.

    Y
    es you submitted your assignments in the correct place. We had an announcement this morning on blackboard. This is the first class to submit assignments this way. We are the trial class to see how it works.

    I
    believe you just have to reference the text under the reference section, not a citation.

    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?
    ScarletFire,
    Thanks I hope it goes well =) But I am not working full time so I have it a little easier than you did. I can't imagine taking that load and working full time. As is I am already overwhelmed but I want to be done by May!!!

    mansi,

    i did what middlesister did, too. just reference the book at the end for the objective section; reference the lab manual for the subjective section. BUT, if you use 5 or more words in a row copied from either source, then you have to use an in-text citation. I had to do that a few times in the first assignment.

    TxMonci,

    know what you mean about your desire to be done. if you want any info re: med term or US gov, PM me and we can talk there so as not to bother these girls with classes they are not taking. maybe i can provide some tips that will help you.
