    Did anyone else get the Perry & Potter book early?v I saw it as a recommendation from other threads to get it early and start reading. What about fundamentals for success?

    I also picked up a math for nurses book at B&N. I'm going to start reading now.

    I might get the book early to stay ahead of the instructor, but I do best with the didactic part. Let me/us know how the early studying goes. Are you using the math book for the class?

    Well I got my shoes- I went with the Doves and bought inserts for them. Not sure which Dansko's u bought, but those were heavy. Did not put on a pair where I was like Oooooh. So we shall see. These are light and like I said the inserts feel nice.
    Went back and exchanged the Dansko's for the Doves! So much lighter!

    Honestly, you are directly in the middle of the two. Central definitively is your closest, north and south are approximately 30 minutes north or south of you.
    Hmmmn...will I be fighting any traffic going to North? I wonder if that's a better option? Thoughts? Suggestions? Anyone...Bueller?

    I am in plantation and still thinking of going to North because I heard people liked that one better. So if that's true the extra drive would be worth it.

    Does anyone know the full name of the Potter's book we will need. and the book for math for medical students. thinking of ordering them on amazon to get a head start hopefully.

    Btw, any of you thinking or wanting to go to North campus. PM me for link to FB group so we can discuss and plan meetups etc easier.

    I ordered the potter book today. Here's the isbn: 978-0-323-07933-4 for math I got a book from BN for $20, it's not the one we need but I didn't want to get too many because they up and change the editions so often.

    Thanks for the isbn. There were a few packages of the same book so I wasn't sure which to get.
    Did you buy the book suppliment Nursing Skills Online, 2.0?

    I completed all the certification pre-reqs.
    Just need to pick up shoes, and some other medical equipment that we need. might check amazon as well for decent prices.

    I still have not received my BC student card or student ID. I know what email said we needed a re-application form to be brought to the orientation but, I am pretty sure I already applied and was accepted as it was needed to take all these courses. gonna check on that this week.

    Other than supplies what are people doing in the mean time for the nursing program until orientation? Thinking of reviewing my anatomy, medical terminology, and looking over that Perry & Potter book.

    Your welcome. I think I got just the book but it may have the online supplement. I know when I returned to the college I had to go to one of the offices to get a new ID card. In the meantime until the program I plan on reading the first 6 chapters of perry and potter (I've seen numerous posts about that being the first exam), I plan on working on my nursing math skills and conversions, reviewing A&P, and enjoying my time with my little man before the madness begins (and the I'm a horrible mommy starts.) did you get my PM about supplies?
