This class was tough.
First off, this professor is very knowledgable in this field of study. She is a great teacher and has many experiences to link course work with real-life situations. However, the professor's test-writing abilities are sub-par. There were many discrepancies between the class content and the exam content. If you like to learn a lot, but are not interested in doing well on exams, this course is for you!
The highlights of this course are the instructors teaching style. She uses many different ways of teaching material, such as group work, online quizzes, readings, presentations and storytelling. This is beneficial because it covers many different learning styles. This class is about acute health alterations across the lifespan, such as asthma, pneumonia, fluid overload, bowel perforation, and many, many more! There is an abundance of information in this class, which makes it tough, yet worthwhile.

Advice for students:
Ask many, many questions! If something is not clear, ask for clarification. Always come prepared. Reference your book when presenting discrepancies between taught material. Your textbook is your best friend! (Although it is a very heavy and large best friend) Study with a partner or two. Two brains are better than one! The exams are application, not fact-based. So, study facts, and learn how to apply. Buy the study guide that matches the text book. (Hint hint- Some test questions are from this book!) STUDY HARD for exams. I know this is a given, but it really is necessary in order to succeed in class. Fight for your grade if you feel it is not true to your abilities and effort.
