A rolling suitcase....really??? - page 7

    Yeah, backpack and heels won't work. I like my heels and will be wearing them on non clinical days on occasion, so I'll be sticking with my tote too.

    1st semester my first rolling backpack turned out to be too small! I ended up trying to use a suitcase but found that my books shifted around inside too much. I finally found a HUGE rolling backpack at Target that worked perfectly. We were required to bring lots of books to class and I had 3 classes in one day. 2nd semester I was able to go back to a regular backpack because fewer books were required and I was able to get my reference books on my Ipad. This summer all I really need is a tote bag. I'd wait and go to class once or twice before I decided what fits your needs.

    I may have to recant my earlier opinion and give in to the rolling bag. I was at school Thursday and threw my back out toting around my books and my backpack. And, I'm not even fully in to the NS program yet. I am just too old for this stuff!

    I wish I could leave my rolling backpack at home but unfortunately, I cannot find digital versions of my textbooks and I've looked on amazon, barnes & noble, cheggs, etc...

    I don't think I've ever had a teacher make us bring a book to school (except once when a teacher wanted to go through the drug guide with us in term 1 to point out some important bits). I haven't had clinical instructors ask me to bring textbooks either - there are books on the unit/the computers. I'm going into 3rd year btw.

    My backpack only has a clipboard, pencil bag, water, and my lunch. My laptop too if a class is really boring (but lately I have been getting by with my cellphone).
