Holy Moses! I just got the information packet for the BSN program I'm beginning and we are required to have 28 books for the fall semester! I know those will last the rest of the semesters as well, but WOW!
We also have to order our steth, penlight, etc etc through the school's SNA.
Oh yeah, did everybody else's class require them to have a nursing dress?
Edited to add: Eek! I just printed out my syllabus and calendars for summer classes, and I used nearly half a pack of paper! And I'm only taking 6 hours! Looks like I need to buy stock in a paper company :chuckle
So much to do to gear up for the fall! Anybody else is getting ready to go?

Holy cow! They make you get them all at once?
I guess that will make it cheaper later, plus you'll have all those references if you need them.
I would like to see you walk out of the bookstore with 28 nursing books!! LOL
Our school offered the steth, etc. through the SNA but you didn't have to get their packages if you didn't want to.
I'll be starting my second year in the Fall, but just starting clinicals so I'm excited. I am also taking a class from another school to count as my nursing elective and I'm excited about it too.
Glad to hear it seems like things are working out for you. Have fun!
PS- no dresses required but you can get one if you want. We have navy pants and a polo shirt for one outfit and white scrubs
for another. They do have to be from ONE specific mail order store (Dove), though. We can also get their v-neck cardigan if we want.
