The Elderly and the Internet, comment

My comment regarding elderly and the internet is simple, leave the internet to the younger generation. I cannot even imagine my grandmother chatting, dating or socializing on the internet. Criminals are looking for ways to prey upon the elder’s. I believe when elders become a certain age they are targets for schemes.The elderly can sometimes be way to nice to individuals they don’t know, which makes them targets for bad people to take advantage of them. I believe elders see good in everyone and they could possible make the wrong decision online with trust.

Informatics: Where in the World is Google Health, comment

July 24, 2013

I agree that Google is a dangerous site to search on regarding health issues. My sister Google’s everything to do with her health, and questions why is this happening and she’ll put in her symptoms that she is having, and it comes up with some off the wall responses. This puts fear in her and does more harm for her than good.

Choices that prepared me for my online nursing classes, comment

March 1, 2010

I think the biggest hurdle I’ve encountered with the decision to obtain an online degree, is the time management. I have never been a master of my time to begin with and trying to juggle the children, a full time job and school – amongst the hundreds of other commitments we all have, has been quite a struggle for me. I envisioned putting the children to bed with plenty of free time at night to study on line. I now realize that 1000 at night is not necessarily the optimal time to read and retain learning material. I also wished I had taken in account how stressful it can become when your taking a timed exam and the kids are running in and out of the room while the incoming calls are knocking offline! (yes I live in one of the few areas in New York that still uses dial-up service) If any, an important lesson I have learned throughout this experience is to impart time management unto my children – that it is an essential skill needed not just in healthcare but in life in general.

Title: Choices that prepared me for my online nursing classes
We all made choices about the types of courses we wanted to take when we were in junior high school and high school. I went to high school long before the age of computers but know one course choice I made in 8th grade prepared me well for this class. No, it wasn’t a science class or a health class but instead it was a typing class. I cannot imagine doing the homework assignments if I couldn’t type fast. Thank you to my parents for encouraging me to take typing, I remember telling them, it was a waste of time and I wouldn’t need it as a nurse. I apologize to them both and thank them for guiding me well.
