    Is there anyone else that has Professor *****and is unable to see any documents on blackboard? In her email this morning she said she posted the syllabus and some other documents to print, but I don't even have the course listed in blackboard yet. Thanks!
    I got an email as well, but there is no information available on the Blackboard. I emailed her back asking to make it accessible for us. So far, haven't got any answer.

    I went home after the first orientation and got just the Craven and Med-Surg books! Now the booklist from D came in and I'm scrambling to get the rest in time without paying bookstore prices! Ahhh!

    Anyway, I was late on Thursday but people said that now they are saying there is no Skills Lab the first week. Has this been triple confirmed? I meant to call since V told me Monday that there WAS. I put it off because I can't deal with the frustration!

    Anyway, happy last weekend before craziness starts!

    What is the booklist from D?? So far I only have to Craven books to start, do you think we'll need the med-surg right away too?

    I also heard that we don't have skills lab next week, but like you said, has it been triple confirmed?

    Only 1 and a half more days!!

    Sorry, meant reading list! Someone has it posted above. The Med-Surg is Lewis but you only have to look up the study tips part on the site. So for those of you who don't have the book yet:

    Medical-Surgical Nursing, 8th Edition - Sharon L. Lewis, Shannon Ruff Dirksen, Margaret M. Heitkemper & Linda Bucher. ISBN:9780323065801

    There is no code to put in so you should be able to register and sign up now.

    By the way, it took me forever to find the required section (Study and Exam Taking Tips). After you register, there will be a bar on the left side of the home page. Under My Content, click on Resources then click on the blue Lewis...etc. link. It will open a new page. Click on the blue Resources link. The section is under Chapter 1 under student resources, then Prepare for exams. A little convoluted but I hope that helps someone else save some time!

    Feeling a little frustrated that I didn't just bite the bullet and get all the required books to begin with and now won't be prepared for the first day. Such is life, I guess!

    Thanks for the link!! I don't have the teacher that y2dave13 mentioned in his booklist post, but do you think we'll all need all of those materials? I may need to do some overnight Amazon shipping!

    Ah I see! I thought I saw above that you also had D? It's really tricky not to be able to use names! We'll have to think of nicknames for everyone!

    The booklist that I got in my email (not on BB) is the same as the one posted above. I have D and class MW 6:00-7:50. Maybe that can narrow it down!

    Gotcha! I am in the 4:00-5:50 class with A, but if you got the same booklist as the prior posting I bet we all have the same readings since he said his professor is R. Like you said, tricky!!

    Hi all, I'm Jeff, evening cohort 4-5:50 class. I couldn't get the BB to work either, all weekend. I'll call Tech today BUT is there any way someone can print an extra copy of whatever it is we're supposed to print for me? Just in case it doesn't pan out. I'll buy you Cheetohs or something to make up for the ink and paper! Or you can email me a copy of the docs (posterboykelly@yahoo.com) that'd be cool too.

    On a side note to any feeling they're putting things off, don't worry, I don't have 1 book yet (needless to say I won't have any reading done by tonight) so you can't be off as bad as I am hahaha. I don't even have the book list, it never opens in my emails.

    Anyway, see you all tonight.

    Is there anyone in the 4-5:50 class that does have Nursing 101 listed in their Blackboard course list?

    I got a hold of tech support and they said the only thing that can be the cause of the problem is that the professor needs to activate the course for us. I emailed our professor and asked her if that might be the issue, but I haven't heard back yet because I just sent it a minute ago. If some students in the class have the course listed I can't imagine that's the problem, but I wanted to check.

    Thanks!
