INSTRUCTIONAL HOURS: 10 LAB HOURS: 80

INSTRUCTOR: Patricia A. Pickering INSTRUCTOR INTRODUCTION: I earned both a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Master of Science in Nursing from Indiana University. My education prepared me to become a Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. I have worked as a staff member, provider and administrator in health care. For over ten years I have worked nationally as a consultant to assist health care practices and clinics improve efficiency, flow and revenue. This work included providing technical assistance to community health centers through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC). I focused on innovative approaches to teamwork, efficiency, effectiveness and quality to help guide health care organizations in their improvement efforts. All of these experiences required learning, understanding and communicating the language of medicine which is based on medical terminology. I have taught Medical Terminology I and Introduction to the Medical Office in the classroom setting. I have also taught medically oriented students in the Medical Home Skills Lab (BTECH 150, 151, 250 AND 253) at Pierce College Ft. Steilacoom Campus. These courses have allowed me to share my medical terminology knowledge and experience with my students. I am now focusing my work as a distance educator with Pierce College and am teaching online courses as well as developing new courses to expand the opportunities and options for students working to meet their educational requirements and goals. It is a privilege to help prepare and empower students not only to survive but thrive in medical and health-related fields. COMMUNICATIONS: Through Conversations via the course inbox. CATALOG DESCRIPTION: Fundamentals of medical terminology, including prefixes, suffixes, root words, and basic rules, upon which the student will build a medical vocabulary. Includes basic anatomy and physiology for the medical office worker. REQUIRED TEXT AND MATERIALS: Delmar’s Comprehensive Medical Terminology, Fourth Edition, Betty Davis Jones, Delmar, 2011. (ISBN 9781305125292) This textbook bundle is available only at the Pierce College Bookstore. Use caution when buying a used book as the access code(s) needed for the course may have already been registered which would require purchasing the code(s) at considerable extra expense. The bookstore can be accessed via the Pierce College home page (under Resources) or at http://www.pierce.ctc.edu/dist/bookstore/ COURSE OUTLINE ON WHICH SYLLABUS IS BASED: April 11, 2012 COURSE GUIDANCE: 1. Course Expectations: As a student, you can expect that I will respond to your e-mail within 48 hours and will grade assignments/tests/quizzes within four (4) days. Please contact me immediately if you have not heard from me within these timelines. 2. Introductions: You are expected to post a short (one paragraph) introduction to the course Discussions Area during the first week of the course. Guidelines within the course (Module 1) are provided for the introduction. Introductions posted after the first week will not receive the 10 points for the assignment. 3.

4. Incompletes: You have ten weeks to complete your course. You are expected to complete the course in this time frame. Incompletes are given consideration only when a truly extraordinary, unexpected and significant circumstance that you can document interferes with your ability to complete the course on time. However, the granting of an incomplete will neither be assumed nor guaranteed and may be granted only upon request. To qualify for an incomplete you must have earned at least 50% of the course’s possible points at the time of the request. The request must also occur prior to the last week of your course. Requests made during Week 10 will not be granted. Any incomplete that is granted will be for a short period of time only. I reserve the right to take special circumstances into consideration when granting an extension as well as request documentation of the unexpected circumstance. 5. Student Responsibilities: Please remember that it is your responsibility to notify me of major changes in your circumstances that will affect your ability to complete all course work within the course timeline. This course is self-directed. You will have due dates. How you complete the work required by each due date is up to you. Thus you will need to carefully plan your approach to each module and insure you meet the respective due dates. I am here to help you in any way and provide insight, guidance and assistance to help you succeed in this course. But this is not a one-way street. It is your responsibility to communicate with me on a regular basis. If I don’t hear from you I don’t know how to help you. 6. Plagiarism software may be in use during your course. 7. Etiquette for classroom and online courses is the same. Treat others as you would like to be treated, respectfully and compassionately. 8. Written assignments are a part of the requirements for this course. Correct spelling of medical and related terms is very important and is a critical part of learning the language of medicine. Incorrect spelling will result in point deductions. This is a college level course and thus demands the use of proper grammar. You are strongly encouraged to check and recheck your work for grammar and spelling. The use of spell check and grammar check (found in many of the word processing programs) is highly encouraged. Use of these programs won’t catch everything, but they will alert you to many possible errors in your written work. 9. Late assignments may be submitted up to one week past their due date and will receive a 10% deduction off the score. Any late assignments submitted beyond the one week late deadline will not be accepted and will receive a score of 0.
