Description:This is a brief introduction of the nursing program of FSW which can help students meet the outcomes, and some facilitate along those measures on how to use canvas.
This is an accredited nursing program which can help students meet the outcomes, not only of the college but of the course and of the nursing program, so you will notice when you get your syllabus for every course that you are learning, you will have learning outcomes listed. In addition to that, the nursing program also has some student learning outcomes that facilitate along those measures as well.
So I want to start out by saying that each of the instructors in your nursing courses will have a schedule that will be posted outside their offices, and you can also see the schedule in the canvas, your canvas may look a little bit different from the instructors’, but the content is always the same.
When you enter your canvas courses, you will receive a syllabus for your course which are available on canvas, the canvas usually opens about the day, so it’s very important to print out the syllabus and bring it with you, because on the first day, each instructor will go over it in detail.
Everyone has to assign to a clinical course which is usually a group of six to eight students, and that will be one day a week. Remember to wear something without an open back because we will be doing some activities.
Another thing is the calendar which is extremely important because there are different courses meeting at different times and there will be different activities, so please bring your calendar with you or put it in your phone. The last thing is that nursing has an organization called the NSN, also known as National Student Nursing Association, it’s a great opportunity for you to become involved in community events. We do have a requirement that each student has to have a 16-hour-community service, many of which can be gotten through the NSN.
So I think I’ve covered about everything I intended to, I look forward to meeting each of you and learning more about you, you’ll be able to access canvas and we’ll show you how to use all of those when you get to class. Thank you very much
