    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to study, put in the time and effort to see a return. Especially when you get to the speech part. You have to practice your speech, your body language, and calm your nerves.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Being an effective communicator verbally and through print is essential in the medical field. The well being of my patients depends on this. For this reason I would recommend that all nursing students take very seriously the required composition class and strive to excel in this area. Keeping accurate records of patients is essential for obvious reasons. It may also become necessary to give printed instructions to the patient and/or caregivers upon the patient's discharge from the hospital or rehab facility. Professionalism as portrayed through a well-written document will only aid in assuring individuals of a competent program of care. A poorly written document can cause unnecessary concern--not to mention poorly understood expectations for the patient's rehabilitation or recovery.

    Course highlights:

    Properly constructed complete sentences is the first step in effective print communication. By learning to recognize the components of sentence structure and the distinct difference between written communication and verbal communication a nurse can properly communicate to fellow medical staff and patient/caregivers effectively. This can prevent potentially serious misunderstandings that could effect the health and well-being of a patient. This basic composition class is the foundation to effective communication that maintains professionalism, which is essential to the medical field.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is my recommendation to give this course all the time it deserves. Be sure all your assignments are peer-reviewed before submission. Do not be discouraged by the instructor's red pen. Learning from your mistakes is an essential part of any writing course. Don't hesitate to ask questions. Also, learn to read more critically and notice writing styles. By observing what effectively communicates to you, you will learn to write better. Read your text book. Note carefully the examples of various written pieces. The time and effort invested will pay off for the rest of your life not only professionally, but personally too.
