Classes that Just Bug You...

I am taking a class now that irks me to no end. We basically have a worksheet to do every week with about 15-20 questions on it. Not bad, right? Well, we are divided into groups, and each person in the group does about 2-3 questions apiece on these worksheets. We have to e-mail our part to the "group leader" for that week and the group leader compiles all of it and submits the worksheet to our instructor. This bugs me because I have no way of knowing if the group leader ever actually turns in our assignments until they are graded. Plus, I'm dependent on the entire group to actually do their work. Anyone else ever had a class like this?

I did, and then I dropped it before the cutoff date, ate the $150 tech fee, and joined a different class. I don't want my GPA to ride on something so whimsical.

Well so far it's going ok, people have been turning in the work and I have an A in the class so for me it makes more sense just to suck it up until the class ends next month.

Group projects were the bane of my existence when I was working on a business degree. It seems like that is getting more and more common, especially with fields where teamwork is so important. I'd much rather just rely on myself, but it's probably a good exercise since most jobs do require you rely on a team a lot of the time.

Yep, it's me! I had to make a new account (AlmostThere19) because I forgot my password to the missnursingstudent19 account but then found later. Sorry for the confusion!

Peds - sorry I honestly don't give a damn about if a child can build 4 blocks or 6 blocks by the age of 2 1/2 years. big deal if I give a 3 year old a reading book instead of a push pull toy. Having to read 20 ATI pages about developmental stages is dumb and useless

My "culture class" - sorry I don't know why you should give an Asian American a chicken sandwhich because its a "cold food" and they like the Ying and Yang theory. FFS, patients at the hospital order their own damn food, why do I have to know what foods a Latina eats when she is pregnant???? Wow. I'm also terribly sorry for not assuming Native Americans are often alcoholics. This is the most subtlely racist class I've ever had in my life lol.

My year three cultural safety paper.

Not because of the content, it was taught by one of the most culturally unsafe nurses I have ever met
