HPRS is a great class, but you can not just take it online. There is a lab portion that you have to complete in class. The lecture is offered to you online alnong with medical terminology
quizzes that you complete online, but there are 7 modules that you must attend on campus. The labs sit only 16 students. So in the beginning of the semester, as soon as they post the lab schedule, I would recommend signing up because they fill up fast. These labs consist of orientation,vital signs, medical asepsis, wound care & catherization, oxygen therapy, safety, and specimen collection.
You will have to pick you lab times, most are offered 8-12, 9-12, 1-4, there are no evening labs, and there are a couple of one hour labs which range from 7:30 - 8:30 am, 10-11, 9-10, 3-4, from what I can remember. You have 3 competency skills that you must pass within 20 minutes, an instructor watches silently while you perform the skill. You have critical points in the skill which you MUST do or say to the patient or you will fail the skill, you have 3 oppurtunities to pass the skill, if you do not pass, you fail the course. The three skills are vital signs (u pick ur partner), simple wound dressing, and catherization (both done on simulation patients). You also have 4 exams that you have to complete on campus but its online. Its more of a self-paced course, its up to you to suceed. Good luck, if you have anymore questions let me know!
