Nursing Research

  1. I will be taking Nursing Research class (2 Credits) and I'm a little scared. I allready had trouble with my English classes. I am not into writing. I am more into math and science courses. Please tell me how was this class and the type of assignment you did. I am soo scared of nursing school. I just don't want to fail thats all. I will be attending TWU in Houston, TX 2005 (Spring). If anyone out there is attending this school I would like to talk to you.

    I'm not exactly who you are looking for, but I thought I would offer that, judging but this little smidgen of writing in your post, you have a fluid style and you can spell. These are important skills that not everybody has!

    Research classes teach you to think in an organized way--I think you will find that it fits in well with your math and science interests.

    Don't be scared! Go to each class, ready for adventure! I think you'll like the course. Let us know!

    We really didn't have much writing in our class (just finished). We took 3 tests which were right out of the book, listened to a bunch of lectures, and had 1 group project due (3 groups in our class) which included a paper and a PowerPoint presentation. Everyone in a group shared the group grade for that portion, which was combined with our individual test scores for our course grade. So if one got A's on all 3 tests and a B for the group grade, one's course grade would be in the range of A / A-. It was MUCH easier than I expected. I hope yours is, as well.

    Hi there! Welcome! I finished my Nursing Research class in April and we had NO writing in the class believe it or not. We had two exams and one presentation. I received an A in the class. It was a cinch.

    We didn't do too much writing. Some, but not a lot. We did do a whole lot of reading. The course was difficult, but I don't think anybody flunked out because of it. Not that I heard anyway.

    Undergraduate research courses are not about learning to do research yourself, but about learning how to interpret other people's research (i.e., learning to understand what those journal articles actually mean ! )

    You will learn about the different types of research studies and the different types of statistical tests used to analyze raw data. Shouldn't be much writing in the course. Best wishes!

    well thank you for your input. I thought it was an individual study. I had doubts of going to BSN because of this. I am a good student primarily on Math and Science courses, but never on English or Political Sciences. Now I see that this class is more of a statistics class. I want to go for my BSN now becuase it would take the same time if I were to go for ADN. It would take me 2 years for both of them. Time is going by and I am 21 yrs old and I do not want to past this opportunity while I am still young and I do not want to regret it when I get older because I want to advance to nursing later on. I am finishing up on my prerequisites for BSN for Aug. 5 and I applied in Spring 2005. I can take one class this fall with the university and that is Patho, if there are spaces available.
