    That's okay I plan on losing mine so I can get a new one one day when my hair looks decent lol It was crazy to do it like that. I think I spent two hours standing in both of those lines.

    It was during orientation that the mentioned Anniston as a clinical site in a later semester. Maybe that will change I REALLY don't want to drive there.

    So we will have class M-W and then lab for fundamentals on Th or Friday or maybe both sometimes? Do they have any open lab time for extra practice?

    Is the nanotex hot? Is it less wrinkly?
    You'll have Fundamentals on Monday, Health Assessment on Tues (some times this will be a lecture, some times it will be a lab - ex. learning to give head to toe assessment; skin, reflexes, neurological, etc..) Pharamacology will be Wednesday - before you get into learning drugs you'll do drug calculations. The labs for fundamentals, they usually split it into two groups. You'll either get Thursday lab or Friday lab. There really isn't an open lab, but what you learn in lab is easy enough to practice at home or in study group.

    I don't really know if the nanotex is hot compared to the other one. I can tell you that I definitley get hot during clinicals because there's never a moment when I wasn't moving. I do think that it is probably less wrinkly - because I could take my uniform out of the dryer and it would still have crease markes from the last time I ironed it :-) If you want to meet sometime I can bring my uniform so you can see.

    Hey does anyone know if the codes for the books are mandatory? I am able to get these books from family which would be super cheap but getting codes is another thing? Is everyone going to purchase the bundle? Thanks!!

    I would assume the online codes are mandatory, but like most Pierson products, you can probably purchase the codes.

    The jury is still out for me on the book bundle. I'll sit down tonight and price things for myself just to be on the safe side. $580 is ALOT and I am paying for this out of pocket so I REALLY need to make sure I have exhausted EVERY alternative. Even if I save $100 that's $100 more in MY pocket and not Pearson's. Any advice about this would be GREATLY appreciated .

    I looked up all the books through half.com and came up with about $400 for the 8 books (used and some were described as slight wear and a few highlighted pages, some had CDS and some did not), but thats not including the two codes that we need... Im not sure which is the better alternative either.

    I wonder if it is okay to have e-books????
    If you have an ipad or kindle, etc, it would be a heck of alot easier to
    carry those instead of the books plus, some of the e-books are alot cheaper than the actual text.

    With the codes you can log into the books from the website; you can make notes & the teachers can make notes on the assigned reading. They may assign us to do the pre and post test for the assigned chapters. Even if they don't assign them, they are great practice questions. Also with the eBooks, you can get the Pearson app on iPad (I didn't bring my books to class, I just brought my iPad).

    I spoke with the Pearson rep and she told me that the codes themselves cost $250.00. So the bundle will probably be most cost effective

    Hey everyone, there's an email on Pipeline about ordering a Skills Pack for labs. They have to be ordered by this Thursday! If you haven't seen the email yet, check your pipeline account.
