UPNS 112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I feel that people don't give this guy enough credit. Yeah he is tough but, so are many great teachers. He is the first real challenge I've met since coming to this school. My tip to getting an A in his class is to take the time needed to really read through the material he gives and just bullet point the main ideas. Also peering it up helps too.

UPNS 112-01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B

Dr. Larew is not a good professor. His topics have little to do with the quizzes, which makes it hard to prepare for both the quizzes and the midterm/final exams. He does not respond to emails well. You need to email him multiple times before he possibly responds. When questions are asked, he gives students answers that make them even more confused

UPNS112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Dr. Larew is not helpful and does not have students' education as a priority. He simply likes to hear himself talk. The course could be helpful to nursing students, but due to Larew's "instructing" it is impossible to learn anything. He does not quiz on content, but about his own opinions. If I did not have to take this class, I WOULD NEVER.

UPNS 112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

His topics during lecture very rarely have anything to do with nursing. He bases his content solely off of random website articles and long, irrelevant PDFs. It is difficult to know what to study for his impossible 10 question, 2 point quizzes. He is extremely defensive and unhelpful when students ask questions. Avoid him at all costs.

UPNS 112-01 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He gets extremely off topic and doesn't allow us to have enough time to complete in class assignments due to his rambling. He also has moved on after a student asked a question without giving an answer. His quizzes are almost impossible to pass and the quiz questions are also full of contradictions which makes it even more difficult.

He is a horrible teacher. I have never had a teacher who cared so little about students and who tried to make you fail. His questions are very opinion based..and not yours! Good luck trying to step inside his brain considering he does not teach. The information is not presented well-let alone at all.

He is awful and does not provide any useful information in lecture. He rambles about not important information and then creates impossible quizzes. He does not try to help students, but rather trick them. DROP IF HE IS YOUR PROFESSOR!

UPNS 316W Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

He is extremely off topic and does not follow any particular organized fashion when it comes to teaching. He teaches us the most irrelevant information. This class is absolutely boring and the quizzes are difficult. The lecture has nothing to do with what is on the quiz. Whatever you do, try to get in the other section with a different professor.

UPNS 112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: B+

I took information technology in Nursing and I found his teaching style to be scattered and uninformative. The quizzes were hard in the beginning because he did not specify what information was going to be on them. The lecture was not at all helpful for the quizzes.

UPNS 112 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Very hard at the beginning, but changed teaching style halfway through the semester. At the start there was alot of material and no prior review for a very short, difficult quiz. He started having students write questions and reviewing for quiz and my grade improved also. Also I was sick for a while and he was very willing to let me make up work.

He is very off topic during class, and does not give you the content that will be on quizzes. He also does not explain the answers to the quizzes well.
