I have never taken an online course and it was a very hard decision. I can say it was a great experience, and the right decision. Everything was clear and went smoothly. Questions I had in the course were answered in a few hours. The textbook was very helpful, had good illustrations, and a glossary I will use for a long time before I get comfortable with all of the terms.
First, I must say that I am very impressed with the thoroughness of the program, it has far exceeded my expectations! This course has compelled me to examine areas of nursing that, admittedly I should have been more conscientious about, but was so caught up in the ‘clinicalness’ of, I did not devote the effort to areas like best practice, competencies, the business aspect of nursing and our relationship with FNIH….Thank you so much for your help.”
