How should I work through each module?

On the home page of each module you will see an outline, a few subsections (the number varies per module), a post-test, and a discussion board. Each time you begin a new module, we recommend you look at the outline first. Please refer to your textbook to see if you have a 6th edition or a 7th edition then select the outline that corresponds with your textbook edition. You may print the outline if you would like to refer to it while working through the module.

In the first subsection, click on the text displayed in red to view the activities associated with that section of the module. On the next page displayed, you will be presented with the Objective for this section of the module.

Next you will want to look at the Text Readings. Please make sure you read only the assigned pages that coincide with your textbook edition. You may also view the presentation provided under the Text Readings.

The next section is Additional Resources. Click on the text in red to be directed to additional resources that apply to the material in this section.

Next, you will go to the Learning Activities. If there are any activities associated with this material, red text will be displayed. Be sure to click on ALL the learning activities. Some modules have more than one to complete and the post-test won’t open until all the learning activities have been completed.

The following sections: Where is this on the ANCC Test? For Future Practice, and Source Information are all supplemental materials that you might find useful.

To return to the module home page click on Return to module.

If you would like to track your completion, look to the right of the section you just completed and you will see a gray box with a dotted check mark in it. Click to make the check mark solid. This indicates to you that you've completed this section. Only post-tests are marked as completely automatically. This is optional so if you don't mark yourself complete, that's fine. It won’t impede your access to the other materials or other modules.

Follow the steps above to work through each subsection of the module and to track your completion.

Once you have completed each of the subsections, the module post-test will be open. Click on the text in red to access the post-test. Each post-test is made up of 10 multiple choice questions. You must receive a score of at least 90% to pass the module post-test. You are allowed multiple attempts if you don’t pass on the first try. You will also have the opportunity to review your answers so you will know which parts of the Text Readings and Additional Resources you will need to go back and review before attempting the post-test again. Once you have achieved the passing score, click on the AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep button to be directed back to the module home page.

The last section of each modules is the Discussion Board. Participation in the discussion board is not mandatory, but highly encouraged. This is where you can share, interact with, and learn from others in the course.

You can now move on to the next module by selecting the next module listed in the Jump to…drop down box. The course was designed to have the modules completed sequentially but you are not restricted to completing the modules in random order.

Once you've selected the next module, work through the sections as listed above.
