16. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
no suggestions!
Chen Wang's teaching style is knowledgeable and credible but could elaborate more on difficult subjects.
Only suggestion that I have is to make sure the information is clearly presented. Sometimes the power points or lectures had conflicting information.
i think better communication about the assignment details to avoid any last minute confusion would be great.
No suggestions for improvement, Dr. Chen Wang's teaching style is excellent and thoroughly engaging.
Not any.
loved Dr. Wang. best clinical instructor!
None. She was great, hard to understand accent at first but you learn to love it!
The only suggestion I would add is to have a one time one-on-one 15 minute session for each student just to check up on them.

21. What changes would you make in the clinical experiences?
None!
Sometimes on our down-time at clinicals we would just wait around, it would be better to have something else to learn while waiting.
Clients were not always available, the locations at time acted as if they did not even know we were coming and acted like we were a burden. I do not think this is a healthy learning environment. Also I believe we should be exposed to more than just senior homes which were the majority of our clinicals.
maybe give us a better idea of what we should go over each day so we dont feel lost in front of patients
No changes suggested, clinical experiences were excellent.
Have more supervision.
have there be more to do. there were a lot of times that we would finish our stuff around 3:00 and then she would have to come up with stuff for us to look over or review and that should not be occurring during clinical time.
Some were redundant
Nothing, I felt it was overall good
22. Other comments:
I think there should be more clinical teaching prior to students being putshed into clinicals
Professor Wang is such an impressive, intelligent woman. She is very concise while still maintaining accuracy and thoroughly presenting the content. Her answers are easy to understand, as well as her demonstrations (ie. the head-to-toe physical assessment). She is always aware and informed of what assignments the students are working on at the time and is always prepared to take any corresponding questions. Such a knowledgeable and straightforward professor, she was so easy to work with.
Makes concepts clear and easily understandable for students and is very informative in clinical settings. Friendly and approachable instructor who is always willing to help students in need of clarification.
your an amazing teacher Dr. Wang and i love you=)
Dr. Wang was very helpful, I felt I learned a lot from her and you can tell she really enjoys her job.

20. What changes would you make in the lectures?
The lecture time is very long. We often do not need the entire time.
Nothing.
Organizing ahead of time the topics for the week and what is expected. It is nice to know ahead of time what is expected for the upcoming weeks and what is due. Although it was posted, a lot of the time assignments were changed around or things were cut out of assignment sheets.
Have all the clinical instructors on the same page and informed on the assignments that were doing so we can ask anyone of the instructors and they would all have the same answer. Have a weekly list of what will be due the following week and organized calendars of events that do not change dramatically. Have sufficient breaks/activities to keep students motivated and interacting. Don't just do powerpoints, views and pictures work well too.
In every lecture I would want the professors to ask students around the class questions pertaining the lecture. In that way there would be more student interaction and more learning involved during the lecture.
Nothing, I learned the most is Professor Wang's class lectures.
None
None
I felt that not everyone was on the same page. I wish there was only one check list for an assignment that everyone agreed on, instead of there being 2 or 3 different checklists and the students are left confused.
21. What changes would you make in the clinical experiences?
Dr. Wang is very helpful in clinicals. If I could change anything I wish we had more one-on-one time.
Better clinical sites.
Perhaps interacting with the nurses at clinical sites more will bring a better clinical experience.
make sure that the time of clinicals are good for the clinical site so that they are able to teach us things at the time when a lot of things happen.
Explain in monday's morning class what will be expected for the following week's clinical site. Have clinical sites that will actually help/nurture us into learning and have a plan of what to expect. It was hard to construct a road map for the clinical site if we didn't know what to expect. Clinical sites with PARKING!
I feel that there is no need for any changes in our clinical experiences. Each experience was fun and enjoyable.
Sometimes the dry lab seemed like it could be shorter in that we were given too much time to do certain skill/assignments that could be done in half the time given.
Nothing, Professor Wang was always available and ready to help& explain.
None
None
I wish we were briefed on what we were going to do the day before clinical. However, we did not have school the day before, so it is understandable.
22. Other comments:
I loved this semester, i thought I learned a LOT. I loved professor wang, she was nurturing and understanding and I would recommend her to any incoming student,no doubt. I know this was hard because we were the "guinea pigs" for the new curriculum, but the instructors did their best to give us the benefit of the doubt and help us to pass. I really loved this semester and loved the instructors.
Thank you Dr. Wang for guiding us through our first semester of nursing school. I hope to have you again in the near future.
Sometimes it was difficult to gauge what was expected of us with our assignments because the teachers had their own expectations and teaching styles. This was also evident in how they graded our assignments because it seemed like some teachers were more strict than others in their grading scale. Professor Wang was really fair in how she graded our assignments and also gave good feedback on how we could improve. I would highly recommend her to any student!
Professor Wang's GREAT!!!
None
Professor Chen Wang is an excellent instructor who has wonderful knowledge in her expertise. She was able to help students understand the concepts if it weren't clear and students are able to learn a lot from her.
I enjoyed this semester and I hope the next semesters will be as fun-filled and knowledgeable as this semester! I hope they all go by as quickly as this one did! :)
For the over all course, there should be a study guide that is give out more than a week. Also the study guides are very vague or confusing. If there is a study guide make it more general with the main focus points.
