Question about Nursing books

  1. 0
    I have a question for all of you nurses that went through nursing school (or are in nursing school at the moment). Next semester I'm going to be taking the nursing program at the junior college in my town, and I want to get a little bit of a head start on "nursing knowledge." I know the books probably wont be exactly the same, but if you could please tell me what books you had to study out of (exact names if you can remember!), then it would help me out SO much! Thanks a bunch!!

    i go to bcc and the book we are using is fundamentals of nursing by potter

    i will also recommend a good book that will help you prepare for nursing test questions: test success by nugent (its a really good book) hope this helps. what college are you planning to attend?

    youíre very welcome. i would also suggest to visit your school bookstore and ask them b/c they would know the exact books you should be using or go online to your schools bookstore. if you have any other questions donít hesitate to ask.

    Erika I go to BCC in Massachusetts. Is that where you go?


    I also used Fundamentals of Nursing by Potter and Perry
    Nutrition and Diet Therapy by Lutz
    Pharmacology for Nursing Care by Lehne

    We have a few others for 2nd semester and dictionary and a nursing dx book. If you want those too I'd be happy to share the info.

    Check out the books in the school library. They probably have the texts used in class and it would be FREE. Also, find out from the bookstore what is being used.

    Potter Perry here also (Gulf Coast CC in Panama City)

    If you haven't done it yet, I'd also recommend you get familiar with math for nursing (not particularly difficult but strange if you haven't used it) and study your med terminology (we were tested during the first 6 weeks on 300 terms)

    Good luck,
    Phil
