    Hi,I'm curious to know how much of the reading really is necessary? There is quite a bit and it's very detailed. Can you successfully pass the tests/quizes without thoroughly reading the text assigned reading?Also, someone mentioned quizzes don't open until Fri mornings? Is that correct? It looked to me that they are DUE by 0800 Fridays.
    The quiz is open now, I heard someone say that they took the quiz's for the whole class already. What is this 30% of our grade, end test? 300 pages of readings! But, I looked ahead to our readings, for the next weeks and there are a lot of the same readings. I finally figured out That the subjective is from one book at the objective is from another. Geez, yeah the instructions are pretty vague! The videos didn't tell me much, unlike professional nursing, where most of the quiz's came from the videos!

    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?

    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!

    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 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
