    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course gives a great foundation for other nursing courses, and really applies to many things you'll see in clinical. It helps connect the disease or process with the "why" and gives you the full picture.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course were learning about disease processes and how that translates into real life actions. Our professor did a great job of making sure we knew both the textbook version and the clinical implication. Some of the things we learned included genetic diseases, bone deformities, clotting cascade and drugs that inhibit it, chemotherapy nursing implications and some of the disease processes behind cancer.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study! Study! Study! If you're a textbook reader, I highly recommend continuing to do that. Review concepts as often as you can, since they are all cumulative! make flashcards, make concept maps, and connect things with real life for the most understanding. Participate in class!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She is a fabulous teacher. She's great at using clear, relatable and creative examples and her powerpoints are always available to look back at. She answers questions pretty thoroughly and presents a lot of visuals for students. Overall, I think I learned a lot from her class and would highly recommend her.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course were her games, powerpoints, great examples of medical conditions and her explanations. I learned a lot about medical conditions, the causes behind them, medications and treatments to help reduce the effects of the illness, and how the medications worked.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely, ask questions for clarification and don't be shy to ask your peers either, they are a great resource. There's also a study group session held with a tutor every week if you need extra help, I've heard great things about it. And I would say you really just need to take good notes and study her powerpoint slides.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a challenging course. But you benefit a lot and you get in depth knowledge about both pathology, physiology and pharmacology. It will no doubt help you in your clinical practice.

    Course highlights:

    Lectures were brilliant. The presentations gives you a solid summary of the subject material. You just need to understand the concepts and memorize the material regularly to do well in class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to study regularly and make notes form the very beginning.
