    Unfortunately we can't post faculty names in the discussions .... I also had a tough time with Econ. I'm glad I took it by itself -- I busted my tail to get an A in that class! I think it helped to review all the live lectures and PowerPoints that my instructor provided, and I did the required reading until I thought my head might explode. Blech. Out of all the classes I've had to take, Econ has probably been the most difficult because it was mostly unfamiliar territory.
    I agree it is tough mostly because it was unfamiliar. I have an A so far but I spend my life at the library working on just this class. It is crazy but almost done. I start studying for the final tomorrow. Told my family don't expect to see me, fend for yourselves LOL! I agree review the live lectures, power points that go with each chapter, the chapter tests really help too.

    As to community health it was a really easy class, two main papers, one power point project and the experiential learning sheet at the end. Simple stuff. You'll like it.

    Since I took this session off I'm taking 2 classes Spring B, 3 classes Summer A and 2 Summer B. I will graduate October if all goes well.

    Now I'm a little worried about the Economics class. ;-\

    I'm starting Cultural Diversity (again) this next session. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    How long does the paper have to be? And what other requirements are there? I'm currently in case management, but have done a lot of home care/community health stuff in the past.
    I had to do two papers, a PowerPoint, and an experiential learning project when I did NR442 (in addition to the weekly discussions, of course). The two papers were epidemiology part 1 (Week 3) and part 2 (Week 4) -- part 1 was examining a public health problem, part 2 was examining an agency that deals with whatever issue you described in part 1. The PowerPoint (due in Week 6) was an intervention and evaluation of a public health issue in the local area. The syllabus described that as a "paper," but our assignment ended up being a PowerPoint -- mine was about 20 slides. The experiential learning project was interesting -- it's due in Week 7, and you have to select and visit four public health agencies in your area and interview a staff nurse. A template is provided with questions. I interviewed a school nurse, a SANE nurse, a free clinic nurse, and a parish nurse. I really liked this class, overall.

    ex navy girl,

    cultural diversity wasn't too bad, my big paper at the end interested me a lot more than I thought it would. The instructor had a few kwirky "projects" but overall it was not a bad class ... it does have to potential to become heated. The worst part was the online book - I hate those things give me a physical book any day.

    The book I have for econ is online and I find it impossible to read - so that resource is not of much help to me...

    I also bought an "Econ for Dummies" book, but I don't mind reading books on my computer, so I didn't mind the Econ e-text too much. I thought it was written in a fairly accessible manner, too -- not too jargon-ish.

    Yep I have the ssame econ for dummies book.
    I see that you are an ED nurse also, I have been in the ed for 11 months now - I love it, but it is a small community hospital and I would love to be in a level one trauma hospital ... maybe once I get my NP in acute Care.

    I'm in a freestanding ED, which can be interesting ... we get everything from strokes to STEMIs to traumas, and we're the only stroke-certified freestanding ED in the state. It rocks! I suppose a Level I would be great, but I'm happy where I am for now. When I was a medic student, I did clinicals for a few semesters at our Level I, and it was controlled chaos. But our ED doesn't have the resources that an attached hospital provides, so it really fosters teamwork ... I love it!

    My advice would be stick with one of the topics they offer for your final paper... otherwise you may get tangled up in trying to find good arguments and spending a lot more time than needed. Otherwise it was not a bad class.

    This looks like it would be best to take alone

    I started taking Cultural Diversity this session and dropped it. Decided to take the session off. I dislike the online books, also. I end up buying a used copy from somewhere. I hope the next 3 sessions go by fast.

    Well I just said goodbye to my 4.0 thanks to my brain rejecting the last half of the statistics class..... I was hoping I could do it.
