If you want to buy your own bones and muscles to take home, the following slide has the best websites I have found:
Where can I get bones and muscles to study at home? v Bag of bones ($50): Mine was missing an ulna and cervical vertebrae, but had all the other bones. Skull and mandible had a few holes not drilled out. If they are out of stock, google “Bag of Bones” and buy it elsewhere. http: //www. amazon. com/Anatomical-Chart-Bags-Bones.

Grading Policy Grades are based on lecture exams and quizzes and lab exams. A = 90 -100% B = 80 -89% C = 70 -79% D = 60 -69% F<60%.
Lecture Exams and Quizzes Lecture Exams and Quizzes: During some lab times there will be a 10 -point quiz on the lecture material from the previous week (all quizzes are multiple choice except the first one has 5 short answer and 5 multiple choice) There a total of 5 quizzes during the semester. There are 4 lecture exams worth 70 points each; each one contains 5 questions from each unit preceding it. The lecture exams are 70 questions, one point each. There are 60 questions that are multiple choice (use a scantron) and 10 questions that are fill-in-the-blank. The points in lecture total 330. There is no extra credit in lecture.
Lecture Make-up Exams It is essential that you be present for scheduled exams. Makeup exams will be administered for severe and compelling reasons only, and only when notice is given directly to the Instructor well in advance of the exam or when accompanied by a physician’s note.
Lab Practical Exams There are three lab exams worth 100 points each, and one 30 -point quiz; total possible points in lab are 330. There will be 5 extra credit points per lab exam. The final is not cumulative EXCEPT for all the histology (microscope slides).
Disabilities If you have specific disabilities and require accommodations, please let me know in the first week of the semester so that your learning needs may be appropriately met. All discussions will remain confidential.
Getting a W or an F? If a student gets a D or F in a class, you can retake the class, but the bad grade will always remain on your transcript along with and “R”, indicating you retook the class, and the new grade will also appear. Only the new grade is used for your GPA (but you have to fill out a form at Admissions and Records, it is not automatic). However, since the bad grade also appears on your record, you may want to consider dropping the class instead of getting the bad grade that nursing schools can still see.
Getting a W or an F? Getting a W is also not viewed favorably by nursing schools. The last day to drop a class without a W is on the Friday of the first lecture exam. You have until 11 pm to drop. I will let you use my computer if you decide to drop after you see your grade for the lecture exam.
Getting a B or a C? If you get a B or C in a class, you cannot take it again at the same school DISTRICT. You can take it again elsewhere, but both of your grades will be seen by the nursing school if you submit both transcripts. The nursing schools look at a C the first time you take a class and an A the second time you take a class, and they will give you credit for your average of both grades, so they will assign you a B for the overall grade in that class.
Tip If you plan on withdrawing with a W and retaking the class, it is better to stay here until the last day to drop with a W (about 6 weeks before the end of the semester). Once you drop, you cannot come back in to the classroom to audit…problems with liability.
How do nursing schools feel about W’s and F’s? Cypress –One W in the prerequisites is OK. Cerritos –Only allows 1 W, D, or F for prerequisites. Can repeat 1 prerequisite to improve the grade. Golden West –They have a formula for the number of W, D, or Fs on the transcripts. Long Beach City –Only allows 1 W, D, or F for prerequisites. Can repeat 1 prerequisite to improve the grade. Santa Ana – Student can petition to have the W, D, or F removed. GPA will calculate both grades until substandard grade removed. The number of W, D, or Fs does not affect entry. The first passing grade is the grade used to calculate points for entry into the program.
Make sure you write your answers on the correct line of your Scranton…the right answer on the wrong line is still wrong! That’s like writing the morning dose of a patient’s medicine on the line for the evening dose!
Miscellaneous Information and Tips Cell Phones: Electronic devices ringing during class can be very annoying to your fellow students. They must be turned off or be converted to the vibrate mode once in the classroom. Please do not bring guests or children to class. We must ask this for college liability reasons. You are welcome to use a tape recorder in class and you may use a digital camera for studying lab work. If you have a lap top computer you like to use, bring it! NOTE: Email this week with your name and the email address you want me to use for announcements.
Miscellaneous Information and Tips You are encouraged to form study groups outside of class. It is common to see a remarkable improvement in students’ performance when they review and study as a group. Before you leave today make 5 friends in class/ or study groups you can contact for information due to missed class time or studying times. Get their email addresses and cell phone numbers if possible.
Grades Posted by Random ID Number It is against campus policy to post grades by student names or ID number. Therefore, you will be assigned a random number to use this semester so you can see your grades each month.
Lab Safety Do not eat, drink, smoke or store food in the laboratory. Avoid all finger to mouth contact. Report ALL accidents immediately! Wipe down the lab bench surface with disinfectant before each lab period. Keep the lab bench clear of any unnecessary books or other items. Know the locations of fire extinguishers, the fire blanket, the eyewash apparatus, emergency flashlights and the first aid kit. Know emergency procedures, phone numbers (x 4444) and evacuation routes (see information on the bulletin board in the front of the classroom. ) Use caution when handling sharp instruments. Wear gloves in the lab if your hands have cuts or suffer broken skin. Inform your instructor of any allergies or medical conditions you may have that could directly affect your work in the lab. (including pregnancy. ) Under no circumstances are visitors or children allowed in the lab. If you drop the class, you cannot continue to attend lecture or lab.
Disaster Preparedness During an Emergency Always remain in the classroom with your instructor until your class has been instructed to evacuate. Wait outside your classroom building to receive instructions before leaving the area. Acknowledge ALL campus alarms. When you hear the alarm, calmly exit the building you are in and NEVER enter a building when the alarm is sounding. Ask students with special needs if they need assistance exiting the classroom or building. Whatever you carried in, take out (keys, cell phone, backpack. ) A campus official will alert students when it is safe to reenter the building.
Earthquake Should an earthquake occur: Duck, cover and hold. Do not run out of the building. Stay away from glass while indoors. Remain calm and stay with your instructor. If you are not in a building, seek out an open area and stay away from glass.
Fire Should a fire occur: Stay with your instructor, and evacuate the building together. If you are the first to witness fire or smoke, immediately contact Administration. Do not re-enter the building until a campus official gives “okay. ” Building evacuation routes are posted in the College Emergency Procedures that are hanging up in every classroom and office on campus.
Safety Summery Fire exit: exit to the left, leave the campus, go to the left again, and head toward the park. Do not exit to the right…it leads to a dead end! No bare feet exposed after the first month…we will have scalpels out in lab. Come and go to the bathroom as you want.
Sickness Safety If you have a fever, please do not come to class until the fever has been gone for 24 hours.
Class Announcements by Email Once you are enrolled, send me an email from your preferred email address so I can send you notices about when grades are posted, announcements, or when I make changes to the website. Then I will have your email address that you wish for me to use. I will send the class emails as a blind carbon copy so no one sees your email address.
A little about myself…. Microbiology major, CSULB Graduated from Samuel Merritt College of Medicine, 1986. Spent my 4 th year at USC Medical Center Surgical Residency in several OC Hospitals Private practice in Orange County as physician and surgeon for 20 years. Came down with leukemia, had to close my doors. Recovered, decided to go into teaching.
A little about myself…. Updated my microbiology classes at CSULB. Earned a Community College Teaching Certificate at CSUDH, completed my internship in Anatomy at Fullerton College. Hired there to teach Human Biology Taught Microbiology Lab at Cerritos College and Valley College, Hematology Lab at CSULB, Anatomy & Physiology at Riverside and Mt. SAC. I have been teaching Anatomy at several schools since 2007
A little about myself…. 50% of the school districts prefer a Ph. D to a medical doctorate, even for part-time teachers. Almost all full-time professors have a Ph. D. Full-time positions are rare; someone has to retire. I was accepted to Loma Linda University in 2007; I received my Ph. D in Biology in 2011.
Tips Lecture exams are the week after the lab exams. The temptation is to study for the lab exam, but that will not leave you enough time to study for the lecture exams, which are harder. Keep up on the material in both lecture and lab!
Try not to misspell words so badly that if you spelled that word on a patient’s chart that goes to court for a lawsuit, you would lose because doubt is shed about your competency!
