    I think they are using the 8th ed. However i bought the 7th ed. On amazon for $10.98. So i could start reading the chapters, i dont think there are any drastic changes between editions. If they require the 8th ed in august i will get it when financial aid/loan is processed. I just sacrified the 10 bucks for now so i could get some reading done.

    Thank you for answering. I might do that as well. The 8th edition is very expensive on Amazon but is cheaper than ebay by a few dollars.

    Not a problem, it's really expensive that why i got the 7th ed for now. Can never do us no harm. If you have financial aid to cover it in August i suggest you just buy the used cheap 7 th ed. Then just upgrade in August. I dont want to wait till then to start reading. Everyone in the program suggest reading a head so am listening. Lol.

    Are you just going to start at the beginning and work through the book? I tried to look up a reading list but I only found one for Nursing Process for North Campus. I don't know if each campus will have different assigned reading.

    I've read that the first test covers 11 chapters. Just wondering if it's the first 11 chapters or just random.

    The list from previous semesters at south campus(Fall and Winter) has been Exam 1 - Chapter 1,2,3,6, 32, 33, 33, 34 and 39. I think 11 chapters is for the summer semester since it's more fast paced. From what I see there is not a huge difference in the text books so if you can find an older version it won't hurt to start reading it until finaid is ready for us(if you're waiting on taht money like I am to buy the really expensive and newer versions of books)

    I'm starting in August and I was wondering where do we get the supply and book list from? Do we get it from the book store? Or do we contact someone for it? I want to go ahead and get everything I need so I don't have to rush to get it when school starts..

    they give it to you at orientation or email it, but if you check the booklist by campus and put in the codes of the 4 classes we have to take you will see the list of recommended and required texts. they also sell a boxed package for about $950 will all the books (recommended and required) that you could get if you can afford it. you should wait though cause you might not need all.

    everybody in the program advises that we start reading the potter and perry book so you could get it now if you want, we will be using the 8th edition.

    also the evolve elseiver site has study guides for the nursing fundamentals book, we all have account there already since we had to register with them to take the hesi.

    someone who got started this month posted this a few months ago (nb. the jarvis and perry and potter books are now in 6th and 8th editions respectively):

    "nur 1020, nur 1211 nursing process,nur 2020;
