Comment:
She has an intimidating air about her but was always more than willing to answer questions. Very understanding and didn't expect perfection from new nursing students. Would point out little mistakes, but only to provide feedback so we knew our weak points. would definitely taker her again

Shockingly rude and condescending! I am a good student and I never complain about instructors but every interaction I had with this woman left a sour taste in my mouth. The course material is NOT difficult, it's her demeanor and petty policies about everything that make it so frustrating. Rationales for policies are far-fetched in my opinion!

Comment:
I don't know what all this BS is about her being caring, etc. Actions speak louder than words. She'll tell us all day long that we're her colleagues and she's confident we can succeed in the class. AT THE SAME TIME, she'll be treating us like she thinks we're clueless and must be led around by the hand. Give us a little more credit, please.

During lection she seemed quite condescending and even downright rude at times. Thinks very highly of herself. However outside of class she's actually pretty nice.

Horrible Professor ! Do not miss her class for any reason or she will put you on academic probation. I didn't learn one thing from her class. It was a waste of time. I think I actually lost brain cells listening to her babble about her kids and useless references.

Expects a lot from students but is fair. Takes time to listen and really does care about students as persons. I wish she taught more classes at KCON

She was very nice and upbeat in theory lecture, but then I had her for lab test out and it was aweful. She marks you off for little things and makes you feel stupid. Basically just stares at you with no smile and looks at you like your an animal.

Comment:
Joy was one of my favorite nursing profs for this class. She made the 320 lectures interesting. I also has her for clinicals and she was very encouraging and didn't make me feel stupid when I made small mistakes. I don't know why everyone thinks she's so mean and scary.

Picks favorites and if you are not her favorite she will be rude and mean. She is a very demanding grader and is by far the worst NUR prof at GVSU.

Comment:
very particular about everything, inconsistent depending on which student she is grading, test questions are hard, makes lecture somewhat interesting but you really have to read in order to do well in the class. Other profs complain about her openly to students because she will fail you for little things like surface bubbles in injections test

Scarey, hard, and sometimes mean. Gives extra assignments in clinicals as if there is not enough work. Tough, be on top of everything. Picky when it comes to assignments.

She comes off as mean as first but you have to get to know her. She was really helpful to me when I had questions in clincals. She wants you to do good and pass.

Unique professor. Comes off as rude, but in reality she is tough on you to make sure you pass. She tries to make clinicals fun (site is great)& always willing to answer question. Shes very informed and knowledgable. If you are looking for an easy way out she isnt it, you will be forced to learn.
