This was an extremely long and excessively detailed course which is more suited to a pre-med student than a Nurse Assistant. The course material deals with nuances of drug administration and the test questions go into minutiae that it is just not reasonable to expect someone to remember. Taking the course is like trying to memorize the entire content of a textbook in order to collect the most obscure of details. I think that Diabetes and Hypoglycemia are very important subjects but for the purposes of the students using this information, broad strokes are all that can reasonably be used. We need to know how to recognize symptoms and to respond quickly and correctly - not how to diagnose and treat the conditions ourselves.

I can't change the star number, so I give this 3 stars. While informative as it is 132 slides it goes over more than my scope of practice as a CNA. It was interesting to know the difference between the fast acting drugs for insulin but I can't administer medicine at all. Please make this shorter and split this for a class required for RN/LVN VS CNA.

All are interesting and useful, the only struggle is on taking the 132 slides of the Diabetes, too much detailed for the CNA scope.I almost worry not to pass the average score of 74% and not be able to manage my time to get finish on time of 4 hours time offered.Overall are educative & challenging, give me the chances to freshen, stimulate and be more equipped on parts that I do not know most. Thank you for all the authors.
