This class is absolutely horrible. She is so unclear about what she wants. She refuses to listen to anyone. She asks ridiculous questions on her exam that are so subjective. She'll be completely rude when giving feedback and then if you try to defend your work she yells at you for being "defensive". Don't take this class.

Not sure this is even the same prof I have, She is very approachable, always answers questions. Yes she has views on what she wants but is willing to meet to discuss. An excellent writer and will help you to become one too. My only complaint, not an advocate of online classes and prefers to meet in person but when you do you are glad you did.

Terribly confusing and unclear.Constantly says one thing and does another. She picks certain students and favors them while shafting all the rest.Her exams are "straight forward" but in reality are not. She assigns one paper which weighs heavily and if she doesn't like you she will give you a low grade and completely knock down your grade.AVOID HER

She's an extremely boring lecturer. Many made her seem like she enjoys torturing her students, which is false. However, she has no sympathy for students and expects that they do everything she assigns to the fullest extent, which is literally impossible. It's insane to expect us to read 4-7 chapters for every class with all our other classwork too.

She gives you all of the test questions before the test. Other than easy HW assignments, there is a big paper. If you go to her constantly to revise your paper, she will give you a good grade. Pointless class, it's just guest speakers everyday while she sleeps in the back. Awful professor, but not as unapproachable as people made her out to be.

Had her for Trends in Healthcare and Delivery. She is pretty unclear. She has weekly "question" assignments, which she sometimes uses for exams. Pretty much multiple choice exams. Has a research paper that you should definitely speak to her about and understand what she wants exactly. Not very approachable, but pretty easy class overall.

Prof Smoyak is very unclear. You have these weird assignments but if you do drafts and send it to her she will look at them and correct for you. You can easily get an A but only if you talk to her always before due dates of assignments and show her all of them.

If you have any option to take this course with a different professor--then do so! I was in this class for 3 mos. and didn't learned a f***g thing. I've never seen students cry on a daily basis because they've been verbally mistreated by a professor like in this class Run!!!!!!

She is one of those professors that tells you one thing and does another. Not very reasonable will not help you, nor teach you what you should be learning. Only interested in sharing with others her accomplishments and interests in the nursing field which was psychiatric nursing. Awful, suppose to learn how to communicate well with patients, DIDNT!

this woman is insane. she gives a project without telling you how to do it. and after you hand it in, she gives you a paper telling you how it should have been done. she talks about herself for the whole class. there are no exams, just crazy assignments that are completely unclear and ridiculous.
