Nursing: What do we study?

Back to school again can be challenging for some of us, especially waking up early. Usually, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday I have directed study, hence, no need to go all the way to campus. Directed study is done online and it involves watching videos, reading research papers, doing online exams or exercises, as well as, answering questionnaires or filling in workbooks. This week, however, instead of having directed study on Friday I had lectures on campus. Lecture days, typically, are Tuesday and Thursday from 9 am to 5 pm. So here is how my week looked like:

MONDAY: Directed study – Module 3 Guide, Maternity workbook, Obstetric complications



  • Introduction to second yearWP_20150915_001
  • Introduction to Public Health
  • Anatomy and physiology of the male and female reproductive systems
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy

WEDNESDAY: Directed study: Infant feeding, Mastering Anatomy and Physiology practice test at home


  • Pregnancy labour and birth
  • Lactation and breastfeeding
  • Post natal depression
  • Maternity scenarios workshop


  • Immunisation
  • Types of Research
  • WP_20150918_001
  • Epidemiology
  • Sociology of the family

Friday night is a movie night with flatmates! First week of lectures is over! Yay
