I've seen a few posts recommending a rolling suitcase for use instead of a bookbag, etc. Are we talking carry-on size? What dimentions? I'm starting an ADN program in the fall, but I already have a BA degree and a master's degree in other subjects, so I do not think I will have to be taking a bunch of classes other than anatomy, physiology, etc. aside from my nursing classes/clinicals. I know that my nursing classes require a ton of textbooks, but will I be toting them all to class all the time? I just don't want to buy something that will be too big, but I don't want to underestimate the load I'll be lugging around, either.
Something like these will do : rolling backpack - Walmart.com
Personally, to class I take my power point and maybe my book for that class (abt half the time).
I think it would be more useful for clinicals. I usually have my care plan book, drug book, lab value book, papers, tools of the trade . My first semester I also brought my gigantic textbook along to to look up info on whatever medical issue my patient was dealing with. All that adds up quickly.
