Comment:
He will be nitpicking & will do things against the school policy putting our quizzes out for everyone to grab off a table, & you can see everyones grade. He is talking about health problems from previous students, & is constantly telling kids it was in the book & thats how you shouldve learned it. He is the worse. withdraw from class asap!

I don't know why I saw so many bad comments about him but i loved him. He really knows what he's talking about and does care if you know the information or not. Most of your grade is based on tests that are kind of tricky but if you you read and go to class you'll be fine. He likes to make jokes and i learned a lot of stuff I didn't know before!

Comment:
Taking this class with him may be the worst decision Ive ever made. He is extremely arrogant and acts like hes the only person in the world who knows anything. Class time is useless, spends The whole period ripping apart research papers, textbooks, articles, etc. Assignment expectations are unclear and his feedback is not constructive at all.

Comment:
I went to every single lecture, took notes, and probably spent around 20 hours a week studying for this class. Tests are super hard, and he will tell you everything you have ever heard about nutrition is wrong. I personally did not enjoy his teaching style for a 105 class, so I would suggested changing professors ASAP.

Dr. N has so many bad reviews but do not believe them. He is a great professor that cares about the subject. You need to be able to master the material if you want to pass, but this makes you actually learn the subject. He cares about his students and is ALWAYS available for help outside of class. Take Dr.N if you want to learn about nutrition!

The Dark Souls of profs right here. Too many problems to list in 350 characters. Things to look forward to: Kneecapping your GPA Spending a mandatory $25 on Tophat, a weekly in class quiz program Getting told how worthless everyones study habits are when the class avg is 50% Narcissism in action IMPOSSIBLE exams Being looked down on

Comment:
Professor Nizielski is very arrogant and thinks that just because he wrote a textbook on nutrition, that he is never wrong regarding the topic. He is very unapproachable and often calls students out in the middle of class for answering a question wrong. I suggest that if you have Professor Nizielski, get out IMMEDIATELY. Save your GPA and dignity.

Worst professor I've ever had. Exams are ridiculous. He treats this class as if it's an advanced course. Extremely full of himself and thinks he is the smartest person in the room at all times. Very rude, uncooperative and does not explain things well. Expectations are not clear for what you should know for exam. DONT TAKE A CLASS WITH HIM.

Do whatever you can to avoid taking this class with Professor Nizielski. He is by far the worst prof I have ever had at GV. He does not respect his students and he thinks he is the only one who knows the info. His exams are SO impossible, so get ready for some bad grades! He goes off topic, and his lectures are so detailed that it is overwhelming.

He is by far the worst professor I have ever had. He is so unwilling to listen to opposing opinions, his office hours are absolutely pathetic &he is heartless. His tests are incredibly difficult and unless you memorize the entire textbook word for word you will not succeed in his test. He is absolutely awful and should never be a professor at GVSU.

I have never had such a heartless professor, Dr. N honestly just cares about himself. I have gone to countless office hours and used other resources and he doesn't offer help. He is very arrogant & seems to think only he has the right answer and that nobody else can be right beside him. Very frustrating & feel as if I've learned nothing.

RUN AWAY! By far the worst professor I've had at GV. Exams are hard and he tries to trick you. He expects you to remember everything you have ever learned from other classes even if they aren't prerequisites. He stopped lecture to yell at a student for leaving class early. I'm honestly shocked he is allowed to be a prof. His RMP score should be 0/5

I am a graduate student in PA school now. This is a tough class, but you will thank Dr. N later for the difficulty. Good preparation for graduate level programs.

Dr. N is very intelligent and makes you work for a good grade. His class is very difficult but if you truly learn the material you will pass. He gets off topic very easily and if you don't come to class YOU WILL NOT PASS. overall, the best choice for nutrition classes at GV.

Comment:
I'm no scrub, but I feared failing. Exams are near-impossible because he produces questions from tiny, obscure figures in the textbook or something he mentioned once in class. Also constantly confuses things he tells his basic nutrition class with things he tells his advanced nutrition class. Often gets heated with students. Worst professor ever.

Honestly hands down the worst class I've taken in college. Dr. N has good intentions but he talks to students like they're dogs. And no matter how prepared you are for his exams, you won't do well unless you can read his mind or recite his lectures word for word. Don't take this class with him unless you absolutely have to.

He is THE hardest grader, his exams are borderline torture and no matter how much you study or read the material its never enough. Honestly just looking to pass the class so I can never take it again. He holds office hours but also does't answer questions you have so theres no point in even going. DONT TAKE CLINICAL NUTRITION WITH HIM.

Comment:
Let me start off by saying that Dr. Nizielski is really intelligent. He rides his high horse into class and rides it out. Everyday. He wants his students to learn and has high expectations for them, however, the workload seemed a bit extensive for a level 100 class. You will do fine as long as you pay attention, take good notes, and READ THE BOOK!

Honestly studied for this class harder than I have for any other class and my grade does not reflect that. Worst professor and worst person in general. His entire class is taught by pictures on a slide show, it was SO difficult to learn that way for me. Most of my studying for this class consisted of trying to figure out what we even learned.

Comment:
Nizielski is incredibly intelligent, but his teaching style is more suitable for a graduate level course, and not undergraduate. I would not suggest this course to anyone. He barely uses slides and says everything written in textbooks is wrong. If you miss one small detail that he says, you will fail. Good Luck.
