    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Tammy is an excellent teacher. Even when I was struggling with certain sections of the lecture, I could just go see her in her office and we would talk about ways we could improve my understanding or studying. She also offers a Plan for Success "class" every week for a couple of hours, where upper level students help you go over things you've just learned that you might not understand fully and there's usually a case study to work on that helps solidify what you've learned.

    Course highlights:

    You go over every system in the human body, all extremely in depth. You would expect that for a nursing class though, because we really ought to know the human body or else we can't properly take care of our patients. She would take what we learned and apply it to real world situations, as if we were taking care of a patient. Asking questions like, "What's going on with their body right now?, What signs and symptoms should we look for?, What might help remedy this situation?". It really helps you actually apply the information, not just memorize.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Record her lectures and go back over your notes and re-listen to what she said. 9 times out of 10 you'll find something you missed that is important that you didn't have written down previously.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If your passion happens to be nursing, Pathophysiology is one of the many building blocks to the vast knowledge base student nurses develop throughout nursing school. Knowing how the body works down to the many cells and chemical mediators introduces the knowledge of medications and diseases.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much about the human body when it comes to the mechanics needed to keep it healthy and how it reacts when it is not so healthy. Students Learn about each body system and are introduced to how that system contributes to over all health. It goes more in depth than just anatomy. It's not just about naming parts of the organ, but being able to identify how it works and then when it doesn't work properly, being able to identify what it does to the body and how the body tries to fix it. In the medical field, this knowledge is essential to be able to properly understand and successfully treat your patients.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    ASK. FOR. HELP. If you ever go to Baker University's Nursing school, Tammy Heine, as well as all of the teachers in this program are fantastic in offering extra help and study tips. Any other advice I would give is figure out how you best study and stick to it if it works for you. You are going to encounter students who study for many hours every day, making you feel lazy as well as students who barely study at all and still seem to ace everything, making you feel dumb. Don't pay attention to what other students do. Just focus on you.
