21. Other comments:
I strongly feel that this should be a hybrid class where the student could work mostly online with a few in class days to solidify the material or to present projects. I feel that the 3 hour class was most often filled with discussion that could have been presented in a forum discussion, ppt and book reading manner. Dr. Greywolf did her best to make sure we understood the information and was a pleasure to be in class with.
The course content is fairly bland and boring, which makes it a tough class to teach.
Thank you Dr. Greywolf. I learned a lot from you.
Thank you Cynthia, I learned a lot from your course.
Dr. Greywolf is extremely knowledgeable. She nurtured our learning by being flexible, considerate, and supportive.
This would be a good class to do online. The class time did not necessarily assist my learning. There was too much down time and unnecessary group work. It would be more interesting to you use the time watching something interesting or educational. Less group work would be helpful.

It was a pleasure to work with Cynthia this semester. I finally learned how to critique an article because of her help. She was also very flexible with turning in homework late if we had an exam very close to the due date.
This class should be online AND should be a WI course. There is NO reason to waste student's time when they have a heavy load with their other classes.
Projects utilized teamwork and application of course content.
Dr. Greywolf is very knowledgeable and passionate about nursing research. Her concern for her students is apparent and she takes the time to listen and accommodate to their needs as best as she can which is very much appreciated. N360 had a tendency to overshadow this class in terms of priority which is a shame because I was not able to dedicate much time to really learn the content. to make the information more easily attainable Dr. Greywolf might consider creating a concise guide to the most important topics and concepts and present those points during class rather than lecturing from the powerpoint. Allowing us to use class time to work on the fantasy project was also very much appreciated however.
She was an excellent professor, and I felt supported by her. However, compared to what I heard the other Nursing Research students that took this course from another professor this semester said, we had a LOT more writing than they did. I think the amount of writing that was required of us this semester was more than appropriate for a 3-credit NON-writing intensive class. And I didn't feel as though this extra writing increased my learning compared to what the other students did which was just answering the questions required for an article critique rather than writing a full paper. I also kind of felt like the papers were graded a little more harshly than they needed to be. Although I got good grades, others I know didn't and after seeing their papers I'm not sure why. Especially because we weren't actually "taught" the specific ways she wanted us to write the critiques. Other than this though I really enjoyed the class, and know it will contribute to my future as a nurse.

21. Other comments:
I enjoyed this class more when we read prior to class, took the test and then received a lecture on the material. I understand that other students asked Cynthia to change this because they wanted the lecture first but I did not find this helpful because it simply made the readings redundant instead of supplemental to an interesting lecture that expanded on the points we read. I appreciate that Cynthia was so open to change and listened to my classmates but I really enjoyed her the way her class was run before she implemented this change.
Thank you!
I really appreciated that Cynthia Greywolf tried to be so accommodating of our needs. I could tell that she was sympathetic to our busy schedules and stressful situation. She tried her hardest to help relieve some of our stress by modifying the scheduled presentations. My only criticism of this course is that there was some repetition in the course content and it overlapped with material covered in previous classes. I think because of this overlap, this class may have run well as an online course and this could have helped as people struggled to fit in clinical hours. However, overall i really liked that cynthia Greywolf offered experiences and discussion that was practical and relevant to real life situations. I am looking forward to the final class on how to perform well in a nursing interview. I feel that this will be very useful. It is this type of experience that I feel demonstrates Cynthia Greywolf's empathy for our situation and her willingness to try to provide meaningful and useful learning experiences.
I really enjoyed this class. The quizzes and activities were relevant to the reading assignments and course. "Systems error", hmm...I really never would have thought that was the case. I've always been a firm believer in the individuals accountability in regards to issues in patient safety and care. As in everyone has a duty to do their part and if they are incompetent or don't understand the importance of their position than they are the cause of health care failure. "System failure" an excellent way of looking at healthcare; not to downgrade the importance of individual accountability though.
This class may be be better as an online/hybrid class. Due to the demanding hour requirements and variability in student schedules, making it to class was trying at times and took away from available clinical hours. I did not find TBLs to be beneficial and reviewing the tests three times, last time being iclicker (after all answers were given already) was not productive or a good use of class time.
Dr. Greywolf was a great instructor. She was well prepared and reasoned well with us. She was thorough and thoughtfully organized the course. I appreciate that she was understanding and open to our perspectives. Although we did not have much time to read the number of articles selected, the reading material was interesting and pertinent to what we were going over in class. I very much enjoyed this course. The only thing problem is the limited time for this course giving us a limited time for assignments. Also, some of the answers on the TBL were not correct.
Great teacher! She is very organized and is very accommodating to her students! Thank you for a great year!
This course should have been an online seminar, rather than a 4 hours a week, 7 week long course. All materials were assigned as home reading, and the TBL was tedious and unnecessary. Class discussion dragged on and tedious repetition of material made it hard to stay alert. TBL in general seems like a waste of time, since all the reading is done at home, and the instructor only lectured once. We wasted our time in class doing the IRAT and then discussing the same questions to answer the TRAT, then again doing the same questions using the clicker, then going over the answers to the same questions with the instructor. Doing the reading on my own was fine, but the class was a waste of time, and a real drag in such a busy semester with clinicals.
I think the class was too short. It was hard to have the QI paper/powerpoint done in 7 weeks when most of our time was spent working our clinical rotations. I really liked the Escape Fire video and the readings related to that topic, but I felt that the other readings were not as helpful. I also dislike the TBLs and felt that there were some questions that were not covered in the readings.

15. What changes would you make in the lectures?
none
no changes
The lectures were great in covering the necessary topics and concepts for exams.
I took the course from Cynthia Greywolf with the hopes that individualized teaching would be from her. Instead it was apparent that the course was identical regardless of who taught it. I understand it is important to ensure that certain information is taught, however, I feel that I would have learned more had it not been a "cookie cutter" course.
I would not make any changes
Maybe to include cut back on some pictures? I'm not too sure because I honestly found them to be great!
Great job, I learned a lot!

16. Other comments:
While evidenced based practice is important, the emphasis that was placed on this was too much. The emphasis and course in general should be more well-rounded.
Excellent instructor and very well organized course. I enjoyed the discussions and feedback from the instructor.
Use of undergraduate book for a graduate level course set the stage for a course that was a waste of my time. After taking this class, I am no closer to being prepared for boards than before this course. Dr Greywolf should not be instructing at the graduate level.
very useful class in terms of learning level of evidence to different treatment approaches to conditions pertinent to older population.
I appreciated the evidence based practice focus. Sometimes I am not sure how valuable online discussion was, since it could feel like we all were providing similar responses. In the future, I would try to eliminate from discussion the very narrow factual questions (like "what are the differences between delirium and dementia?") and instead use only the open- ended questions like "what has been your experience working with this type of patient?" or the EBP questions. The posts resulting from those open ended questions were very interesting and helpful. I also wanted to hear and learn much more from Dr. Greywolf directly-- perhaps at the end of every week she could have posted a summary of key points or pearls we should take away on that week's topic. Otherwise, we are relying too much on our fellow students to uncover new knowledge. I would have liked to have heard more from an expert & experienced practitioner.
I felt this class was over structured. Too many projects, quizes, postings. All the assignments preventing me from really understanding learning the material. Online discussion is redundent and there is too much focus on EBP. I felt like i was retaking N620. The instructor was not consistant with posting materials and suplements on laumlima. Quizes were either word for word from a presentation or text or it was rather unclear from what material the questions were originating from, as it wasn't covered in the assignedd readings.
This course seemed like a lot of busy work. It's almost the same class as 640.
Very timely in email responses. Very sensitive to students' needs. Highly knowledgeable about subject matter. Would recommend to have class in-person to facilitate learning
Dr. Greywolf was wonderful about constantly asking us what she can do to better the course. I appreciate that she values our feedback. After thinking about it, by simply answering questions, readings each other's posts became redundant. As a result, I do not feel that many people took the time to read each other's posts. I think that one valuable way to keep the class engaged is to split us up into small groups of 3-4. Then provide us a case study and ask us to discuss and develop an assessment and plan within a small group. This way we are thinking about how we will address multiple diagnosis while considering a geriatric patient. All in all, thank you for all your hard work this semester. I learned a lot from my classmates' PowerPoint presentations.

19. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I really enjoyed working one-on-one with my preceptor. It allowed me opportunities I never would have received otherwise when doing clinicals with 9 other students in other clinicals. Being the only student on the unit allowed me all and a wider array of the opportunities that were made available throughout the shift and the duration of the clinical rotation. Also, doing a complete 12 hr shift helped me to become accustomed to the work hours and learn how to manage my time. I especially enjoyed working on a unit that I hope to work in in the future--it allowed me to "train" and actually see what it is like to work on the unit.
The clinical experience. Practice of independent work which helped to build my confidence and competence. The NCLEX questions used in class activities.
Excellent clinical experiences, fun reflection papers
Conference meeting, clinical, and quality management project.
I liked being in the clinical setting with one-on-one learning by a mentor.
Everything
Professor Greywolf was extremely helpful and made me feel comfortable speaking my mind.
Professor Greywolf was always available and is a compassionate instructor. She was easy to talk to and always willing to help/answer questions.
Learning on a unit was more valuable than learning from a textbook. I feel better prepared to enter the workforce because of complex.
20. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
There are many aspects where expectations varied from instructor to instructor--for instance, how the powerpoint should be formatted differs from what was presented in class and what the instructor wants so it got a little confusing as to which to follow. Also, I think the syllabus should clarify the hours--instead of saying students will be given up to ____ hrs for conferences, etc., put that the student will need to acquire ___ conference hrs. First option sounds like we can go up until 20 hrs but it is not necessary.
I understand that it can't be helped, but I didn't like doing the clinical and managerial reflection papers. Though, it did encourage me to explore the various issues in the nursing profession; so that was interesting.
Not enough clinical time with Prof Greywolf
The issue of finding one preceptor to follow. It was difficult following numerous RNs and adjusting to their standards and getting to know each one of them on a personal level.
The Capstone project because I felt that clinical experience and related work was more beneficial.
None
I felt Professor Greywolf was not given enough support from the rest of the department. She is new to the program and so she was a little unfamiliar with the project which made it harder on us to do it correctly.
nothing.
