Hi. I just started the program and I'm in week 3 of 5 of the first class. The course keeps you busy, but it's not difficult. There's a lot of reading and there are short video lectures for each week, along with short quizzes on the reading and lectures. You're required to post on a message board about three times a week for participation credit. Each week (each unit) there is an assignment. So far there's been one assignment about APA writing and formatting that was pretty simple. Just follow the rules presented in the text and powerpoint. The second assignment was to write a paper about nursing philosophy and theory. The paper is based on the readings and your personal opinions. All of the assignments have a very detailed rubric for you to follow so that you exactly what is required.
Like I said, so far it's been a good bit of work but nothing mind boggling. I'm a slow student, that is I read slowly and probably more thoroughly than necessary, I test slowly, and think too much. (Trying to break the horrible habits.) That said, you might just breeze through. The difficulty is probably also dependent on your background. Been to school lately? Written a paper in APA or some other format before? Good at BSing through writing prompts?
Hope that helps!
Anyone have any comments on what's to come in the program? I came to this page looking for information.
