6) Analyze positives and negatives of a nursing career
I have been a nurse since 1992 and have educated college-age learners for the past 9 years. I have taught human growth and development in my Maternal Newborn class and am quite familiar with pediatrics. At the college where I taught, we had multiple students from area middle and high schools come to our college for career exploration and I have spoken to many middle school and high school-age students about nursing as a career choice.

There will not be a formal assessment in this class.I will have students chat in during the class so that I can see if the objectives are being met.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will discuss the nurse's roll which includes administering injections, giving medications, starting intravenous lines, assisting with patient grooming, assisting patients during birth, and possibly death.. Some students may feel uncomfortable discussing these topics, but we will not be going in-depth into these topics.I cannot predict, however, the questions that could possibly come up in discussion.
