    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is everything you could ask for in a Pathophysiology course. Professor Sutton does an excellent job teaching various different disease processes in an excellent way. She starts the class with the basics such as lines of defense within the body and fluids/electrolytes that drive the various different happenings within the body. She then moves into the specific body systems to tie it all together. She does an amazing job building the foundations that you need for a best nursing education you could ever imagine. Additionally, Professor Sutton gives you the option of watching Prep videos prior to each class meeting in order to refresh yourself on basics of anatomy and also give yourself a little bit of exposure to the information she will cover that week. I know that personally these videos were incredibly helpful as I had taken Anatomy as well as Physiology pre-requistes approximately 4 years prior to starting her course.

    Course highlights:

    I truly believe understanding the fluid compartments and electrolyte functions within the body to start of the class was a huge highlight. These topics truly provided me with the foundations that were needed to understand specific disease processes. For example, understanding the disease process pneumonia requires the student to understand function of the capillaries and the alveoli within the lung to truly grasp the concept of how pneumonia develops. In regards to the electrolyte functions within the body, I was also able to learn the roles of Na, K, and Ca especially. I was able to truly understand the danger that hyperkalemia causes to a person and how properly this condition must be corrected to avoid cardiac/respiratory arrest. I believe these brief highlights of the course will truly allow me to succeed in the upcoming semesters within my program.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You must be willing to study for her weekly quizzes as if they are tests. Although you are able to use notes for these quizzes, you should treat them as though you cannot. This was an incredible help to me as I was solidifying information on the weekly quiz topics as I went, which was very helpful when it came time to test out of those concepts. I found that watching the Prep videos and then studying her lecture notes prior to taking weekly quizzes helped me to get 100% on most of them. Additionally, when studying for her exams, I suggest not only studying the study guides that she provides on Canvas but also knowing her PowerPoints in detail because each of her exam questions are based upon the PowerPoints.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Understanding not only how the body works when healthy, but understand how the body reacts when disease is present, is the beginning step to critically thinking in nursing. We are patient advocates, fighting for that which will improve a patients quality of life. In order to do so, we need a basic understanding of the parts that make up the whole and how they interact. This allows you to anticipate what the patient will need and how to best care for them. This class provides that information and Professor Sutton is amazing at delivering that knowledge. The information is tested by real world scenarios, allowing you to open your mind to a new way of thinking, processing and applying that knowledge.

    Course highlights:

    You will get a review of anatomy and physiology as well as an introduction to many diseases processes and how it effects the body overall. You will gain a better understanding of how the body works when disease is present and in coordination with health assessment, how to look for signs of illness.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study a little everyday. Take good notes and review them. Watch the prep videos before class. Join a study group! The weekly quizes are a great way to see how well you know the material and help to ensure you keep up with the class

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend the course in order to understand the basics for disease process. This course is vital for nursing students.

    Course highlights:

    I recommend studying the power points and reviewing the book for reference.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to understand the course, be able to teach a toddler. Understand the mechanisms, cause, signs and symptoms, risk factors, and treatment for each disease. Review each week for each chapter. Do not wait till last minute to review more than one chapter together or it will become too hectic.
