4540 or 4580 for end of pregnancy?

  1. I'm just starting the program this fall, kicking off with the new semester courses. I'll be in 4510 for the first cycle, but am not sure which of the above two (Community Health Nursing or Leadership in Nursing) would be best to take at the end of my pregnancy.

    The 2nd cycle is ending Nov 3 and my due date is Nov 10, so just in the nick of time. Being unfamiliar with the courses and potential workload for each (and knowing that the semester offerings are new to everyone), I was just wondering if anyone can give any insight into which might be the better choice.

    For reference:
    4540 is the new version of 341
    4580 is the new version of 416 & 445

    Hi haunani,
    I'm afraid I am kind of new ( just had 2 nursing courses), so I'm probably not the best person to give you advice. I thought the first course was hard, but maybe it's just because I hadn't been in school for over 30 years! My biggest headache with the nursing courses is that EVERYTHING has to be in APA format, even the discussion board posts and replies. That took the most time, the assignments themselves weren't hard, just time consuming.
    Good luck with your pregnancy. Hopefully the little one won't come early.
    I've seen alot of grumbling on this board about Community, but I haven't seen anything about Leadership.
    Anyone else want to chime in?

    I'm lucky in that I've only been out of school for about 1.5 years (May 2011) and we used APA for our papers then, but I have to say I'm NOT looking forward to having to use it for discussions, too. Ugh. Thanks for that head's up!
