    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.
    registeredin06,
    yeah, well, this class doesn't have to be so confusing....at....all and i don't understand why it is. just give us a template on which we have to fill in the pertinent info that they deem important and that should be that! why do we have to guess what the requirements are. that is just crazy.

    hummmm,

    i just read a few posts on my DB and several people are either not using a reference at all, or they are using the book rather than a peer-reviewed journal article. A few are referencing incorrectly, too.
    Miss Good Luck is not going to like that. Hope it is none of you.

    Just submitted my subjective assignment, took 3 hours! I have to finish up my objective today, sure hope that it doesn't take 3 hours, I have to work night shift tonight! Also, it does state in the text not to put the clients address and phone number in a class setting.

    OK. Everyone is going to think I am crazy, but can we use "Bilateral" instead of saying left and right. From looking at the common errors sheet, I cannot tell if using it is right or wrong? Working on week 2 assignments due to my work schedule between now and next Thursday. Guess we won't have much time to make any changes since we probably won't see any grades on week 1 until Tuesday. Hope everyone is well.

    hi rosemary,

    yes. should use "bilateral" every chance you get.

    Thanks ScarletFire,

    Finally figured last night that why would they be using it all the time in lectures? I thought surely they don't want me to say left and right whatevery extremity,etc. I am talking about. Finished subjective for week 2 since I have to work the next few nights and started on objective for week 2. Very time consuming. Hope second week quiz is about the same difficulty as week 1.

    Thanks for following this thread and your help!!! Hope you are well. Not sure what class I will take next. Would like it to be a little less time intensive than assessment.

    Later.

    you are so welcome, rosemary. obj week 2 takes a long time.... the second column on the common errors sheet has the "expectation" of what they actually want to see. that's where bilateral comes in. I didn't figure that out at first, either.

    I don't know how you do this along with working nights as well. i know i couldn't do it.

    i'm taking N4465 next time, which, i've heard is another difficult one. but, have no choice.

    ScarletFire,

    You don't know when assignments, quizes, etc. are due for N4465. We have already filled out that schedule at work. Would like to see if I could do it. Maybe better to get the touch ones out of the way while we are fully staffed at work. Have a filling some folks will be leaving when there year is up leading to short staffing on some shifts.

    Thanks

    We just have to hang in there. Only 4 more weeks of this class!!!

    I need some serious clarification on N4455....is anyone taking that course?? Please PM if so, I don't wanna go off topic of this thread! Thanks.

    anyone received grades yet?? still awaiting. trying to put off this weeks work so i can see my mistakes first.

    registeredin06:

    I haven't seen any grades on my assignments only on my discussion board. Very courious. Hope things turn out better for me than I think. Trying to do the best I can. Already working on week 2, knowing that I will probably need to make adjustments based on grades for week !.

    I know we will all do well and get through this class together!!!!

    Keep us posted.
