Teachers were more than willing to give up part of their free time to
help students understand certain concepts outside of the classroom
hours
I liked that we began with an overview of the entire program before
really sectioning it out into the in-depth specific classes. It offered a
base and also gave us an idea of what the program really entailed.
The program structure of classroom lecture, on-hand labs, then
clinicals to practice those new skills truly is the best format and works
wonderfully. The instructors are wonderful, giving additional help
where needed and even researching the answer to a question if they
did not know the answer off-hand.
I liked the teachers of this program they are amazing. There is so
much material to cover and they are able to present it in a number of
ways so everyone can understand.
I liked the 1:1 with the instructors and outside attention where it was
needed. When a question was not known, the instructor would get
the answer and report it back in a timely matter. In addition, the
knowledge and analogies the instructors provided assisted in my
learning style.
I loved all of the hands on experiences. It helped when applying what
we learned in the classroom to what we were doing out at clinicals.
All the hands on was very helpful
That it was accelerated. Time was spent at clinical sites to reinforce
skills learned in the lab.
I learned a lot. Not just giving treatments, but interacting with
patients and their families and doctors
Very hands on, lots of great experience in the field
I loved the teachers inthusiasm for the subject.

Better conflict resolution on the part of instructors. Can't do "team
building" until you fix the "team"s communication problems.
More organized lab time with teachers
It would be nice if we had additional equipment or even newer
equipment. At times it felt like it was rushed to get all the information
taught in the time allotted.
Maybe cover a little more of the basics (difference between CPAP,
BiPAP, ventilators, and bronchial hygeine tools) before our first round
of clinicals...there was a lot of confusion that first round.
I would suggest spending less time on ECG subject matter and more
time on equipment we will be utilizing in the field.
Less clinical time at Mayo
I would like there to be more equipment for the students to work with
when they are learning in the lab.

Lab time needs to be more effective. It seemed like we rushed
through check offs. if we had one more staff for check offs things
would go more smoothly because when both teachers are with
students, the rest of us couldn't get questions answered.
I would like it to be longer, and take the time to really continue and
learn the material. i felt it was a fast! we went through material fast,
and some topics i felt like i didnt get anything out of it
Warmer room! More time for certain sections (more on bipap/cpap)
Having a set day that you and the instructer would do clinicals
together!
decrease the amount of physician contacts

Just to keep in mind that not all students in class have difficulty with
math and give out the mathematical formula first, then help others
who need further explanation

instructors were able to break it down for me and explain it in
understandable measures.
Yes, I understood the math that was involved.

was helpful to the specific student's learning ability

The ability to critically think was practiced throughout this program
and enforced by instructors. The instructors made us think outside of
the box even when there seemed to be no other way.
Being in this program really made us think critically all the time.
Was given lots of opportunities to improve critical thinking skills!
