    Thanks Toni0929 for giving me the info for the CPR class. I actually work at BPT hosp and found out they offer CPR/AED classes here for employees I registered to take the class mid December. I'm glad we are finally going to receive information on books and supplies next week. I'm so excited :heartbeat Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone

    I just came on to type the same thing, I have done some research though, the following can be bought from barnes and noble for cheaper than they are asking for:9same editions and everything)

    Understanding medical surgical nursing 4th edition their price:64.56 B&N 60.76
    fundamentals of mental health nursing their price 32.26 BN 21.79
    intro to maternity and pediatric nursing 65.41 BN 58.46
    Anderson Nursing leadership (You can get used or even rent for 1/2 price)
    Calculating drug doses 38.21 BN (new) 32.28 (you can get used or even rent for 1/2 price)
    Core Concepts in Pharm 51.81 BN (new) 51.19 (you can get used or even rent for 1/2 price)


    Student workbook for understanding med surg (they actually have it cheaper)
    the fundamentals of Nursing Package is brand new coming out in December and can't be gotten used or broken up. if you go to the publisher's website they list each book that is in the package (it's actually cheaper to get the package the med dictionary alone is 50.00 the drug book is 42.00)

    Somebody shoot me now!! I'm excited but now filled with trepidation, this course is going to be daunting, and each semester we get new books? OH Gawd what did I sign up for???
    secretly can't wait

    there are loans just for CT residents, go to CT.gov and look up financial aide and it will list them there.
    No I didn't check half.com most of the ones on amazon were like a penny or two less than BN.
