    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is the first huge nursing course you need to take. With taking this course, I have gained further knowledge on how the body works when something goes wrong. It is the first course that shows you symptoms of a sick patient and how to diagnose.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights for me was the teacher Karen. She explained everything well and in depth. Each week we learned a new topic for this class. The topics included: Fluid and electrolytes, endocrine system, hematological, cardiac, respiratory, GI, Renal, Neuro, integumentary, Immune, and musculoskeletal. A lot of information was covered, but you will obtain a lot of useful information.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    For this class, students must have a strong background in physiology. If there is not a strong background, they might have a hard time understanding why everything works the way it does in the human body. I would suggest to always take terrific notes and possibly record her lectures. SI sessions are always beneficial to attend. I would say that reading in the book would give you more knowledge on the subject, but it can become overwhelming at first. Students must take this class seriously and put a lot of time into it to get a good result.
