Hi everyone,I am currently in my first semester of nursing school. Some of my prereqs were taken over the summer. Right now I am taking the following courses:Anatomy & Physiology IIOrganic & Biological ChemistryNutritionNursing 129 (Professional Socialization: Education for professional Nursing Practice.)So far I have an A in A&PII, Chem, and Nutrition. As for Nursing129, I think I failed the first exam and I don't see how on earth I can pass future exams in this class because of the professor....This is the first nursing course of the program. It is on the history of nursing, social issues, etc. Sounds easy right? Well the professor is making this class a COMPLETE NIGHTMARE. It is unbelievable how ridiculous this professors teaching methods are. During the first 3 classes, this professor literally spoke about herself and her accomplishments in nursing- nothing, absolutely NOTHING relating to the course material or chapters in the book. The first test was on 4 chapters of the textbook. Come the class before exam 1, all the students were asking what material would be on exam one and what we should focus on because there was an immense amount of material. The professor gave NO INSIGHT as to what we should focus on. She just said we just have to read all 4 chapters and be prepared. Come the test- there were only 15 multiple choice questions ALL ON ONLY 1 OF THE 4 CHAPTERS IN THE BOOK.How am I supposed to focus on every minute detail of 1 chapter while she said the first exam was on 4 chapters (VERY LONG AND DETAILED CHAPTERS!!!!!)To make matters worse, Exam 2 is on 12 chapters...... and yes that is TWELVE chapters. Everyone thought she was joking when she said that but she wasn't. Each chapter takes literally an hour to read. I don't see how I am going to pass this woman's class, especially with having to focus on my other 3 classes. The entire class met outside after the test and everyone was furious about the situation so I'm glad it's not just me.I contacted this professor to make an appointment to meet with her to see how on EARTH I can get through this class with a C+ or above. It just really angers me because I KNOW THE MATERIAL!!!! And I feel like this professor is:A) screwing up my GPA, and B)Wasting thousands of my dollars if this class is not passed with a C+ just because her teaching methods are absolutely terrible. I KNOW the material, but she REFUSED to give the class ANY insight on what to focus on. It was like she didn't want us to do well......I thought this class would be the easiest of the 3..... Boy was I wrong. If I don't pass this class with a C+ or above, I will:Not be allowed to take any summer courses in 2013.Not be able to take the classes I need to next semester since this is a prereq.Have to take this class again which will be a total waste of my time and money that I DO NOT HAVE. Any advice???? I already have my bachelors in another field, and in my past 4 years of college I have NEVER EXPERIENCED such a horrible professor. Is this common in nursing professors????? I hope this is just ONE bad apple out of many.... because if my future nursing professors are like this I may as well drop out of the program now and save thousands and thousands of dollars.Thanks for any advice.
