10. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
Sharon is amazing at assessment, wrote her own book, and is valuable as a teacher. I love how she shows us gory youtube videos, and brings multimedia into the mix for us to learn better. She doesn't do death by powerpoint, probably the first teacher I ever met who doesn't just read off the slides. She definitely gets to the aspects that she wants us to know and are important, and she really brings the point home with her stories.
The body functions we learned this semester was more interesting, tested our critical thinking and a higher level of nursing.
Sharon's videos.
The activities and videos that Sharon tries to incorporate into the lecture.
The content we learned in the classroom related to the skills we practiced on the floor.
Powerpoints
I like that the lecture notes were concise and matched the textbook most of the time. I like that we did not have a cumulative final because the information is so dense.
Lectures were specific and she didn't read off the slides. Gave a lot of examples
The powerpoints and readings were very helpful in learning and understanding the concepts in this class.
I found that the most valuable and helpful part of the course was the way that the powerpoint was organized with the objectives. I also thought that the video are a great tool to use.
The use of videos for visual learners like myself. Also, practice nclex questions regarding the subject being taught
the lectures were very informative.
I found most valuable the objectives were listed in an orderly fashion on the power points. Very helpful when studying the ppt and reading the book to add any additional information.
The information taught in lectures and the exam were very valuable and helpful in helping us prepare for the NCLEX exam and understanding nursing concepts.
Aligning objectives with contents on PowerPoint slides. Practice questions were also valuable as well the case studies.
videos, case studies, objectives matching to powerpoint slides, practice questions
The simulations!
She was very knowledgeable in the subject and she presented the topics very well. She made class interesting and fun by adding visual aids and organizing the information in the way that is understandable.
You could relate course content to clinical practice.
The lectures matched up with the objectives that needed to be covered.
Objectives were incorporated into the powerpoints which made it organized. Practice questions and youtube videos were very helpful also.
A three hour lecture is a lot to sit through, even if a break is permitted. I do not feel that the time spent in class, for me personally, was beneficial. I was able to be more productive "chunking" and reviewing the material on my own and in small groups outside of class.
11. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the course?
I would say the least valuable and helpful about the course is the confusion that goes along with some exam/practice questions. I would like it if test questions were standardized. Or if she were to write her own questions, to have another professor or two look over it. Often the tests are awarded extra points at the end for certain questions-- I feel this skews the grades by making questions 50/50. Yes, often most of the answers are correct, but which is the most correct? Really hone in on what comes as a priority and why.
N/a
Nothing.
The lectures were not as interactive with the students. We did not use our iclickers and I thought they were helpful when used in previous semesters.
Lectures
Having lectures right after exams
I found less helpful was that it felt like the instructor was just reading off the slide and not really explaining how things connect together.
Although it was boring at time, all the content was necessary to cover.
lectures were too long
Lecture is LONG! Bring a coffee and do your best to pay attention.
Because it's a 3 hour class, it gets really difficult to concentrate towards the later half of the class, considering the amount of content we go over.
The powerpoint teachings, gotta figure out a way to teach around that
When their is part that gets monotonous and boring.
Some of the quiz questions on the lecture were wrong. Also, I wish that the KAPLAN exam was scheduled during an earlier time. To have lecture then wait over 4 hours made me exhausted while taking the Kaplan exam.
No guest speakers about specific topics
Length of class is too long. Average attention span is not supported by this time block.

Sharon is a great professor, she truly wants everyone to succeed and is easily approachable when you have a question.
Mahalo for a great semester!
More use of videos and add a list of videos that are helpful with the powerpoint. I feel there wasn't enough time to go over the powerpoint thoroughly and maybe a voiceover should be done of the lecture so then in class the difficult and main concepts can be gone over. I especially thought the different mechanical ventilation was not taught thoroughly.
I love that Sharon is very open to improvements and suggestions. Very good coordinator.
Professor Jensen is very caring and helpful professor. She is very knowledgeable and has years of experience to share with students in class. She is a valuable asset to the university.
Find a way to be more interactive maybe? Make it interesting.
Professor Jensen is a kind lady. I could tell she cared about her students and wanted them to pass. Powerpoints were posted before the lecture so it gave the students time to read about the material.
Professor Jensen really cares about the students and their success in the class.

Opportunities for skills and autonomy
Clinicals at queens medical center was an extremely good experience that I thoroughly enjoyed. I liked learning a lot of skills and the independence we are given to care for our patients under the guidance of a nurse. The nurses at queens are very receptive to students which really improves the learning experience. I feel more far more confident in my abilities as a student nurse after this semester of clinicals.

15. Other comments:
Sharon is a very good instructor and is extremely knowledgeable about many aspects of nursing. She is receptive to her students, accommodating to their needs. She is also fun and approachable. Not emphasizing the busy work we are assigned with clinical helps because it allows us to rest so we can focus on what is really important for class. sharon was always available to help us with skills when we needed her and devoted her full attention to our learning. She also has a very easy to understand and creative teaching style which i was able to learn a lot from. I would have liked to see her circulating around the floor more but otherwise Sharon was a great instructor.

8. What did you like best about the course?
Sharon's encouragement of critical thinking and independence.
I loved clinical with Sharon, she knows a lot and taught me a lot. Really fun and easy to work with.
Sharon was very supportive in clinical and had a good knowledge base of the clinical setting and various patient conditions. She really helped me to started consider more critical thinking and integration of various concepts to patient situations.
Clinical
The application of learned skills in the acute care setting and the ability to care for multiple patients at one time. It has helped me with my time management skills and helped to prepare me for future care situations.
Everything! The neuro floor was great and Sharon was very helpful and this was the first time i actually felt like a nurse during clinical.
Sharon was a very good clinical instructor. she wasnt too overbearing and she was very lenient. i learned a lot from her this semester and being able to function as an independant student nurse.
Clinicals and the unit I was on. Queens Tower 5 (Neuro/Trauma)
I liked that we were on the Neuro floor (Tower 5) for clinical. It was a good opportunity to practice a variety of skills and learn a lot. I also liked Sharon. She was a great instructor and was very helpful. She gives very clear instructions and good feedback on one's strengths and weaknesses.
Sharon was the best clinical instructor I have had yet at UH. She taught me what critical thinking really is!
N360 acute care clinical with Sharon Jensen was wonderful! She communicated what she expected of the students very clearly and let us have autonomy in the clinical setting while still being available. She made sure that we were prepared for clinical and worked with the staff to give us great experiences. She is very understanding and patient and very, very knowledgeable! I enjoyed working with her and having her as my instructor.
Sharon is probably the most knowledgeable and most respectable instructors this semester. That's saying A LOT. Her specialty is so intense, and her educational and career background is so admirable that I feel she could possible be the coordinator for N360 one day.

<3 Sharon! I will take what Sharon has taught me throughout my career!
Sharon's the best!
Sharon was a very good instructor. It was a pleasure to have her as a clinical instructor.
Loved being at queens, learned many new things on the neuro floor. so thankful we got to be there, wish i could go back!
Sharon is an amazing teacher who pushes her students while being friendly and non-intimidating. This has helped my learning process significantly and I feel like I have acquired the most clinical experience from this semester because of her. She is flexible with the high acuity level of our floor and adjusts teaching accordingly to prevent students from feeling overwhelmed.
awesome clinical instructor
Sharon has a lot of knowledge, but her weakness is that she in still new to queens hospital, so she didn't know how to use certain equipment such as the kangaroo pump, IV pumps, etc. I think she was a little hesitant and performing certain proceedures with the students. I think once she gains more experience in this specific hospital unit, she will be better.
Very good instructor.
This was the best clinical experience I've had thus far. I learned a lot and had great guidance to help me through this tough semester.
Sharon is an amazing instructor overall. She doesn't hover and smother her students during clinical, which I feel helps us learn independence. Yes, she'll intervene and help whenever we asked (she's very flexible), but I respected her for respecting her students first and foremost.
Amazing instructor!! Truly passionate about her career and teaching!!. I hope all instructors share her passion for teaching

11. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
Just sitting us down and helping us understand some of the diagnoses. I feel that having her guide us in knowing what needs to get done was great. I really appreciated her guidance towards time management and knowing how to organize three patients.
Approachable, encouraging, supportive, knowledgeable
Sharon was always helpful during clinical rotations. She assisted with medication administration and certain tasks, such as dressing changes, hanging IVs, assessments. She also available to answer questions that students had. She gave good feedback on our careplan forms.
She was very caring and helpful. She was willing to always help when I didn't understand something or when I didn't know how to do a procedure.
Sharon knew the course material very well. She is a very experienced nurse that provided us with many learning opportunities as well as thorough explanations to our questions. She could always be found in a very upbeat manner and it really rubbed off!
her ability to remain patient with students during teaching is worth applauding. Provides positive encouragement to students as well as helpful constructive feedback when needed.
Sharon is a great clinical instructor. What I found most valuable about Sharon Jensen was that she always emphasized "best practice." I believe that she made each of us think and really be interested in finding out what is the best way to perform a procedure.
Sharon is a wonderful instructor. She goes above and beyond to help her students. Sharon is extremely knowledgeable and is always willing to share her knowledge to enhance students' learning. I greatly appreciate how supportive and positive she was with each student. Sharon is very much a "hands-on" instructor -- a valuable trait in the clinical setting. I highly recommend Sharon as a Med-Surg instructor!

Sharon was very approachable throughout the semester, which I really appreciate. She was also willing to teach us new things, and even encouraged us to further our learning by doing research on things we were unsure of or just wanted to know more about. Sharon communicated effectively, showed enthusiasm for teaching, and shared lots of her knowledge and experience with us.
awesome instructor!
Sharon was an awesome teacher. Highly recommended!

9. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
The aspects of the course that were most valuable were the knowledge about career opportunities, learning about the APA format so that we could get a head start on what kinds of papers we will have to write when we start nursing school, and a little knowledge about what to expect in nursing school.
In-class discussions were most valuable. I was able to talk with Sharon and my classmates about the lessons we were learning. This helped me to understand what I was learning.
All of the aspects were things that I had not known previously how to do before. Therefore, everything we did from learning APA format and making our presentations more effective were valuable.

12. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
She taught us a lot about what kinds of skills we will need and what kinds of things we will be learning. She helped us get our feet in the door. She is very helpful and resourceful for both school matters and out of school matters. She is also very friendly and easy to talk to so we are able to be comfortable to talk to her about anything.
Sharon is open to students. She is actively involved with her students and is always making sure that we understand what is expected from us.
She is always available for help and is really knowledgeable about almost any topic. I feel really comfortable discussing my questions or issues with her.

She is a great teacher and I look forward to having her as a teacher again.

13. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
I felt that Sharon was clearly an expert in the field of assessment and was always looking for ways to enhance our understanding and skills. I learned a lot during lab and clinicals because Sharon was actively engaged in teaching us.
Everything! I am so thankful I ended up with Maunalani and Sharon as my clinical teacher. She really wanted to help every one of us to succeed not just in her class but in MEPN in general. She is hands down the most knowledgeable teacher I have had in this program so far.
Sharon was an amazing instructor and I appreciated her modified assignments that pertained to the population we were working with.
The instructor was amazing
Sharon's knowledge of the course material.
Her demonstrations on the head-to-toe exam, and her helpful pointers during clinical assessments!
14. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the course?
I thought it was difficult to learn what is normal and abnormal when assessing only elderly patients with many comorbidities.
-- snipped --
I enjoyed this course a lot! There is only so much we can do with the population but overall it was the perfect place for beginning nursing students to begin clinicals.

19. What changes would you make in the clinical experiences?
I think the clinical experience should be a combination of an elderly long term care facility and a clinic where would be able to be more active in the care and assessment of patients.

None, this clinical was awesome.

A clinic with more of a variety of patients to examine
I loved my clinical experience at Maunalani. I wouldn't change anything.

If the course was spread throughout the semester and less intense each week, we may have had more opportunity to soak in the material and build a stronger foundation.

Sharon is an incredible instructor!
My clinical was so much fun and Sharon is an excellent teacher and mentor. She should stay with MEPN not the undergrads :)
