    Manna,
    I was an early childhood education major before I decided on becoming a nurse.

    I just ordered my books from Amazon.com - the total came to $212.04 - Ouch! But I did go ahead and order used copies of some things off my wishlist (including 2 of Echo Heron's books). I'm a book junkie, and my amazon wishlist is still HUGE!

    Now I just have to go down to the school and buy my chem books ($155 more) and I'll be all set for fall. Can't wait!

    No - it's really not. Most of my textbooks this semester were surprisingly cheap. I think the most expensive one was $65 or so + shipping.

    Just when you're pinching pennies and having to wait months on a fin aid refund.. $200 seems like a lot of money! LOL

    They're still "processing" mine - for some dumb reason, I get picked every year for verification and have to fill out all this extra paperwork, submit copies of my taxes.. and I do mean EVERY year I've been in school. Very frustrating - I guess they look at my file and say, "she can't possibly be living on that little money, we'd better double check to be sure!" LOL

    Thanks Agent...

    Come on 2006 hopeful's - give us an update.

    I went and bought my chem book last night, and got my FA processed. I ended up with a grant enough to cover my tuition, books and some left over coming back to me in December... oh well, better late than never!

    Don't get me started on the hellish time I had with the school last night, though! UGH

    Today was my son's first day of kindergarten. I'm so proud.

    Awwww.....that's wonderful. I remember my dd's first days of kindergarten. Did you cry? Did he fit right in? I know you can't wait to go and pick him up. Is it a full day program.

    I didn't get to go in with him, but we had parent orientation Tuesday night. He goes to a small private school (163 students in K-12) - my Mom taught the kindergarten class there for years, and now it's taught by a family friend who also goes to our church - so he knows her. He was also in K-4 at this school last year, so most of his classmates are returning from there. I'm sure he'll fit right in, and he was excited to go! There class goes from 7:55 - 11:00, but since I work full-time, he'll be in after-school care there until 5pm.

    Thanks for askin!

    I submitted my application for the spring this week. I have to pick up the last of my texts today. I bought on Amazon and think I got a really good deal

    I am taking A & P2 (Starts tonight), Nutrition (online), Hist (online), and French. The last three are not required but they will transfer to my BSN!!!

    Good Luck everyone! Hopefully I will be starting my nursing classes in January
