    Jaxia, I think you would have overcome this "waiting" thing already! Since you really had to wait out to get your spot-----I see that you are not a waiter---Hee hee

    It never did come through I even tried contacting their support, but I have not heard anything yet.

    Is it really that obvious that I'm not good at waiting? hehehehe!

    Does anyone know what books come in the book box? If so, would you be willing to share it with me? If you don't want to type it up, I can PM you my phone number if you'd be willing to read it to me

    Pretty please with a cherry on top? I'll buy you lunch. I'll wash your car. I'll...shine your shoes?

    i hope this helps, we weren't given isbn #s, now i wonder why they wouldn't include those??? just kidding, i knnow why, they want us to purchase their book pack! and guess what, i am, just because i am lazy and don't want to search all over to find these books. so far the nlc bookstore still doesn't have this book pack in, so you still can't order it. the bookstore told me to check back later today, or early next week.

    hey jaxia, don't worry about cleaning my car or anything. i don't mind helping out a fellow nursing student :icon_biggrin:

    El Centro has 9 book boxes still in stock and more coming next week - it's a trip down there, and take a luggage cart with you to get it to your car (it's close to 100#). It was $570 ish with tax.

    good luck!

    My daughter took turns carrying the 1st sem. book box from NLC's bookstore 100 miles out the door and another 100 miles to the back of the parking lot.


    OMG...was it heavy! I suggest a suitcase rolling 'thing' too. (Like a freaking dolly or something!) haha




    $291 for 2nd semster, huh? Good grief.

    I'm still giggling like a silly school girl. Wait, I *am* a silly school girl!
