Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I really enjoyed this course. Professor Kelly gave great feedback and she was very positive and joined in on the discussions. We really addressed a wide range of topics and it really opened my eyes to so many things what while working in an ICU environment for a decade I was out of touch with in the community and globally. For instance, just the daily struggles of school nurses in this day and age are astonishing. This class was also an eye opener on a global scale. We researched many other nations and how they are dealing with their healthcare systems, and how they could learn from us or us from them. The U. S. is a super power, but definitely not in healthcare. While there are things that we have done correctly, we could really look at the world around us for inspiration.
I learned to be a more rounded nurse. I made me want to learn more than just the ICU, acute care bubble I was working in for over a decade. I became more interested on a public and global scale in nursing. I know work in trauma and outreach at a different facility. I get to teach and work with the public, and not just just in the acute care setting. I get to use my skills as a nurse beyond the hospital. I work with social work, and I go out into the community, and I work on a lot of research projects as well. I feel like my eyes were opened.

Advice for students:
You really should take this course. If you are in the BSN or MSN program you will have too. You will enjoy it, especially if you never really think outside the little box you live in. There is a great big world out there, and believe it or not it all effects what you do each and every day.
