    I would take Daley over Malcom X. As far as I know, only Truman and Daley are accredited.
    Actually, malcolm x is accredited.

    You can purchase e-book versions independant of the paper textbook. They bundle the books together in the bookstore so it's kind of hard to figure out what the ISBN numbers are.

    My advice, start with just the bare minimum. I can't express how much I regret the $1200 I spent on books and only used maybe 3 of them.
    Thanks for the advice. Do you know if they use the same books every year for the most part?

    Malcolm X is not listed on the NLN or CCNE websites - the two major nursing accreditation organizations. Of the few hospitals in the Chicago area that still hire ADNs, they require one of those accreditations (NLN usually since CCNE is more for BSN programs).

    I would not pick Malcolm X if I had a choice. Whatever accreditation they currently have, it's not worth much. Those accepted to Malcolm X's program should know that going in.

    For the most part. You only need the Fundamentals books first year. Second year you will need to get an OB book, Psych book, Gero book, and Peds book. For Med-surg second year, you just use Lewis.

    I have a problem!! The clerk's( not sure if this is the right name) office is backed up on background checks and so the Illinois part of my file is still in a "pending" status!! The office told the background check people that they should be done by July 18th. I ordered it June 14th. Do you guys think this will hurt me to register? I had my background check in January and it came back fine in 2-3 days. This sucks!!! I don't know what to do.

    Yes! The same people I used in January. I have not ever been in any trouble!!! Don't know what I should do....

    When I talked to the lady at certified background, she said it isn't unusual. Cook county is always backed up in her experience. It doesn't sound right to me.

    Rem1997,
    Call your school and let them know and see what they say. I hope this doesnt stop you, especially when this is out of your hands.
