Student group projects: What do you do when no one is helping?

The bane of all nursing student’s existence: GROUP PROJECTS. Every nursing student has a horror story to share. We’ve all been there. We’ve all been there SO much that most group projects have predictable outcomes with predictable roles!

We all have that ONE person that doesn’t do their part. Did ya ever notice all group projects consist of the same players:

1. The type A go-getter
2. The reliable team player
3. The minimalist avoider

What do you do when someone isn’t pulling their weight? Here are some tips:

1. Be professional. No finger pointing.
2. The two strike rule. Do not wait.
3. Address the problem as a group.
4. Create a paper trail. Have proof of validation.
5. Take an active role in your education
6. Develop your team building skills

Group projects really have very little to do with the actual project, it’s about developing team building skills. How well do you work with others? How do you deal with difficult people? No matter how rotten this experience may be. And how quickly you just want to move onto the next thing, but so you think this will be the last time you deal with someone or something like this…? Nope.

What do you think of 100% online NP programs?

Do you think it is possible for them to give a quality education like the brick and mortar schools? I understand that most of it depends on the specific school. Do you believe that employers will pass on an applicant that went to an online NP school vs. one who went to a brick and mortar school?  – Anonymous 

I answered this question over at FreshNP.com –>HERE.

 

Until next time…

What about NP programs that have pass/fail instead of graded exams?

What if you didn’t get a percentage grade on an exam while in school? Just pass or fail. Is this a good thing?
