Adding a new course has been a bit tricky at my school. So many of the classes are open to anyone that when there is one with restricted access the advisors don’t know what to do. One class ended up with only half the students it should have had because the advisors filled the class with students who weren’t nursing majors.
It’s going to make, this semester, with only eleven students. But I should have been able to fill two classes.
I’m looking forward to the class and I hope that word will get out and next semester I’ll be teaching at least one and possibly two of these classes. The more motivated students are to “get” the information you are trying to teach, the more likely they are to succeed and excel.
