4. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
The course is a good step toward knowing the key concepts of Nursing.
Sally posted the module learning objectives on Laulima the weakened before it was discussed in class. That gave me time to read the material over the weakened so I could keep up with class discussion this semester.
Sally's super smart and knows what she teaches so its easy to follow the material
learning how some of the many disease take their effect on the body

17. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
She shared many personal experiences from her professional career that will be helpful to us in our nursing education and employment.
explained lectures well that you would be able to understand.
Sally designs wonderful powerpoint presentations. Her powerpoint slides are easy to understand and function as wonderful complements to the material we are assigned to read out of our text books.
She cares about the success of her students and is always willing to help them!
I felt comfortable asking her questions; however, her answers were usually very vague or unrelated and ultimately not always helpful.
her knowledge about the nursing profession that she shared with us
18. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
A study guide would have been helpful for the tests ... if possible.
Be more clear with the questions on the test.
Finding other ways of explaining material.
There were several test questions throughout the course that were never covered in class, lecture, or slides. However, she seems to correct most unfair questions when they are brought to her attention. Sometimes she appears moody and can make seemingly disrespectful or demeaning comments to students or other staff.
for a few of the concepts namely endocrine and fluid + electrolyte i feel that your knowledge wasn't as strong as the other concepts presented. our lectures consisted mostly of you reading the slides to us with minimal additional information

24. Other comments:
I am happy with Sally as a nursing instructor.
Thank you for believing in my ability to get a higher grade on the test. My grade in the first test wasn't really good but when I talked to you to do the review, I gained that motivation and confidence in me because you told me that you believe in my ability. I made a lot of improvements:)) thank you so much.
