    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Erynn Lucas was a fantastic instructor in a course that I was a little bit worried would be boring and/or extremely difficult. She presented the material in a manageable, understandable, and interesting way.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a great deal about various types of microbes and the kinds of diseases they cause, which was very applicable to me because I'm going into nursing school. We also learned a great deal about laboratory technique, such as how to handle samples of organisms and how to run various tests to determine what a specific sample of microbes is.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Note: I took her course in the "hybrid" format (lecture online, lab on campus). The two most important steps are to always take thorough notes on the lecture videos and to become familiar with the material in the lab exercises. Her weekly quizzes come directly from the lecture videos, and the lab midterm and final (which are worth a great deal) are built from the material in the lab manual, especially the items in bold. Pay special attention to bacterial metabolism exercise (number 8, I believe).

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The course is essential to learning for the Nursing program. It is a fun course, even though it is difficult. It is not hard to pass the class as long as you put the time and effort into the course. The instructor was really intrigued in the course and thoroughly explains everything. She also helps as much as she can.

    Course highlights:

    The labs were my favorite part of the course. The lab was very hands on and you gain more knowledge in this particular portion of the class. Students learn how to properly gram stain and check for microorganisms just like the professionals.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study study study and study. Do not fall behind on studying for the tests. Form study groups because learning from others' strengths can be beneficial for this course. Stay on top of the homework as well, the homework could be the breaking point between letter grades. Having a good background in Chemistry will also help with being successful in this course.
