    I'm a first year student. I really like the Truman Nursing Program! It has its ups and downs, but I would definitely recommend it. The cost for 1st and 2nd semester is about $3,000 total plus $1,000 for books.
    Hi 4hana9: Do you know if the $1,000 for books covers both 1st and 2nd year? Or is it $1,000 for the 2nd year too?

    $1000 is only for 1st year. Be wise about the books, you do not need all of them. The most important book is Fundamental of nursing by Craven. Last year there was a separate package cost around $250 with Craven text book, study guide and something else (I forgot). This you will need for sure.
    Also, Mrs. Huda is awesome instructor, I had her for both semester in 1st year. Yes, you have to work hard, but you learn a lot.

    I need help to find out which books we are using for 2 nd year (for Psych, and OB). I would like to buy the books in advance and I need the author's names and the titles. The help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks a lot.

    New student in 2011 > Can anyone give me a basic syllabus so I know what I can begin reading in the summer?

    I will be starting the program Fall 2011. I appreciate any info that you could share about these two areas.

    • I have purchased some of the books and would like to start reading early for Nursing 101. What chapters of what books are covered in Nursing 101
    • What have you found to be the best way to study for the course? What has helped you the most.

    Thanks much for your help.

    Are you all going to read the 11 chapters for first week page by page (and all other future chapters)? I'm trying to decide the best way to learn, since it is quite a hefty amount of information.

    Hi nurseollie,

    You're lucky I just found my syllabus! Craven will be your best friend during 1st semester. This is the reading list:

    Week 1: Chapters 1,2,3,5,6,21,22,31,33
    Week 2: 22,27
    Week 3: 4,14,18,19
    Week 4: 9,10,11,12,13,15
    Week 5: 26,35,36
    Week 6: 4
    Week 7: 27,34,43
    Week 8: 33
    Week 9: 7,28,38
    Week 10: 41,42
    Week 11: 39,40
    Week 12: 44,45

    P.S. The semester is obviously 16 weeks long, but some of these will overlap.

    This should keep you busy over the summer! I would suggest you read the chapters and then do the study questions in the Craven Study Guide. Also, do the practice questions on (you'll be introduced to this website at Orientation-it's the website to the Craven book and you can already sign up if you have the access code). My best advice for doing well on the EXAMS is to do practice questions!!! When you think you have done enough practice questions, go back and do more practice questions!!! I hope I've helped. Good luck to you.

    You're welcome. If you have any other questions or concerns, please ask. I was in your shoes a year ago so I can relate to the anxiety.

    Hi, I am planning to transfer my credit from another college to Truman. Also, I am planning to take the compass exam. Were you on the waiting for sometime? Please any advise will help..

    What waiting list are you speaking of????? There is no official waiting list to get into the program. It is all based on grades and having taken the prerequisites and the compass reading exam.

    Does anyone know if we have to buy the entire bundle of book's at Becks or if we can buy some of them individually if we can't find some of them online?
