Just to answer some Qs I saw :)
-Yes, online is harder and there is more work to do then if you are in class. However, I personally would not recommend it if you have never done it. They di a lot of group work in class, but at least there are people you can talk to and figure it out with. Online is usually out of the loop and asking lecture students for info. If you are a self starter and can figure things out on your own- online will work for you
-The quizzes can have all grades/attempts on 1 page. You end up doing that quiz every semester and bringing 2 copies. 1 to hand in, 1 for your portfolio.
-2 copies of the ethical agreement too. You end up doing that every semester as well
-frontloading is when you are paired up with a classmate and have to present a ton of new skills. They teach you them at your first skills lab day and then you are off to study. Its a lot all at once, but just practice and ask questions. Skills include how to take a blood pressure, tenperature, how to walk a patient, get then out of bed, roll them on the bed, etc.
-most semesters have started a private facebook page just for your class. Someone should do that. It can be extremely helpful for everyone.
