COPAR

We will start our COPAR tomorrow at the Apas, Lahug area. We had our orientation this morning.

That leaves us with only a little more than a week for the community exposure, instead of the original two weeks (There were many interruptions this week; the elections, for one).

That's not enough time. I've heard our school's COPAR before lasted for about a month, and the students had to immerse themselves in the community; that means living with the people in the community for a particular period of time so that you actually get to feel what life is like in that community; you see and experience its problems. So you get a better idea what interventions you can use to address those problems.

We won't even be going on an immersion. How can you help the community that way?

Sige na lang...

So what we'll be doing on the first day is to assess the families in the area. Each of us have to interview two families. Then next week we'll be organizing different activities. For example, health teachings, feeding, some games (to simply entertain the people there hehe), etc. After that we'll prioritize all the problems of the families and choose one problem which is the most important and/or urgent. Then we will make a Family Nursing Care Plan, which we will submit as the final requirement of the course. After that? Wala na, murag dili ra ma-implement and FNCP... Ironic no?

Dante said...

hala.... sorry kaayo guys i wasn't able to reply sooner....

the truth is we had our copar early last year pa, when we went to the community for only a couple of weeks instead of the usual one-month immersion that i think is still the practice with many schools. it wasn't really in-depth copar, or a serious application of copar, just a little community organizing that didn't really much help the people in the community. and we had our copar lessons even earlier before that - a year; so wala na akong ma-recall sa mga lessons namin eheheh....

@anon: good luck with that! yup, copar is really hard work, but there is always a reward at the end: the fulfillment in knowing that all your efforts benefit those people in a significant way. :)

Dante.. remember that you have undergone a Special Program course as a Second-Courser BSN Student which your school has lined up your different subjects and activities without taking for granted quality education..

except for those schools, which I myself had observed, that we can quote as "fly-by-night schools" only taking advantage with the students' high rate of tuition fees but are not concern with quality education..

I am also a Second-Courser student of one of the Nursing schools in Davao and I say that our school really gives quality education based on standard teaching techniques and abilities of teachers as well as the school's basic mission and vision which it really aims..

Hence, it really depends upon the school on how it's administration implements quality education..

Hello Anon!

I'm not dissing my school or anything if that's what you mean.

In fact, I can also say that our school, too, can boast of quality education, etc.

The program I enrolled in anyway, wasn't the 20-month course that is commonly offered to professionals from the Allied Health field. I attended the regular curriculum, but I finished it for about three years.

My only beef was just that "tiny" flaw in our COPAR program. The previous COPAR program which our school had in the past years was, based on what I've heard some students and C.I.s say, were commendable. They actually had immersions that lasted many weeks. I just wished that we also experienced that with our batch.

But all in all, our school produces great nurses, too. :)

Regards.

BTW, I frequent Davao since my fiance is from Davao. In fact, I think we'll be moving there soon.

From which school are you?
