    UTA Summer 2018 Capstoners?

    Congrats Calinurse! I am in week 6 of 7 now. It's been an easy course so far. I've heard grading can vary quite a bit depending on which coach you get. The strangest thing about the course is the final capstone project doesn't seem to be a large part of the grade.

    Have you received any clarification for these capstone assignments? How was the grading been? Do you remember if you needed to use the textbook in the Nursing Research class? Was the study guide needed? They list both as requirements.

    Capstone UTA

    Besides my current courses, I only have nursing research and capstone left in the program. The community experiences I have needed for the program have been: Windshield survey of a community you choose and an interview with a public worker in that community like a police officer, teacher, ect. An interview with a non-relative that is over 70 years old. A shadow/interview with a nurse manager that is 2 levels or more above you or you can arrange for one outside of your workplace.

    UTA Summer 2018 Capstoners?

    I am currently taking older adult and legacy of the family. I'll be taking research next block and then I will be taking the capstone. I'm glad I didn't have to take the history classes offered here! I was annoyed that I had to take the English 101 course when I already had the 102 completed. The Wisconsin college I attended let us skip 101 based on our ACT scores.

    UTA N4465

    I just finished the class a few months ago. I did well in the course. The quizzes were challenging due to the select all that apply questions. There is a lot of work in the first 3 weeks of the class. Be prepared to devote a LOT of time in week 2. I don't know if you saw my other post, but here is the time I spent each week: 14 hours week 1 20 hours week 2 8 hours week 3 3 hours week 4 2 hours week 5
  6. Do you recall how they grade the shadow health assignments? It is not listed in the syllabus. After you complete a section you get a digital clinical performance percentage (like 100%) and also a student performance index (like 43.5/48). Which one is used for the actual grade and do they review the long form answers you type up after the assessment?
  7. Just finished vulnerable populations. I thought the workload of the class was really odd. You basically work on a really long project the first three weeks and then the last two weeks are really easy. I passed with a comfortable A. Quizzes are a little challenging because of the select all that apply questions. I am usually pretty quick with school work and I spent about this much time per week: 14 hours week 1 20 hours week 2 8 hours week 3 3 hours week 4 2 hours week 5 I am planning on taking assessment next. Any advice?

    Anyone recently take legacy of the family? Would like to know how it compares to other classes as far as the workload goes.
  9. I have not taken any of the time sucker course listed above. I have completed health promotion and legal aspect. Neither of them were too difficult. If I had to choose, I would recommend using legal aspect to double up with management. Sounds like vaccine queen gave great advice that lines up with all the other threads I read.
  10. I've been happy with the general classes they offer so far. In the professional nursing class the first couple assignments are heavily based on APA formatting. I am currently working on the first paper and I feel like I am wasting too much time just worrying about the formatting rather than the content itself. I will have a better idea how its going after this gets graded. You do get the syllabus right away and it appears you can work ahead if you desire. There are due dates every week. A discussion post is due by Wednesday night and all other weekly assignments are due Saturday night.

    Nursing Research UTA

    Can anyone who's recently finished this course share their experience? In a lot of posts from 3+ years ago it sounds like its the worst course in the program and full of group work. I tried to find out more information and it looks like the instructor may have changed or the class may be different now. Any input would be appreciated!
  12. I signed up last year and am currently in my first nursing core class right now. I believe acceptance in the program is very high. I felt they were pretty flexible in applying my past credits to my degree plan. I really didn't have any complaints about it.
