    Yes, I definitely agree

    I just bought my books for the summer semester. Wow! They cost almost as much as tuition...yikes I'm paying out-of-pocket, so I'm having sticker shock at the moment...LOL

    My Anatomy professor already posted the course syllabus online, so I'm getting a jump start on studying for the first quiz. Now I won't feel like I have to dredge up information I learned 20 years ago out of the old gray matter

    I'm still waiting to hear what this year's cut-off was for points, so I'll know if I'm on track for January.

    I hear you about sticker shock. I've got to pay for tuition and books out of pocket for spring and even though I'm at a CC, I'm still like this: Ready for my grants to pick up again!

    I hear you, my anatomy book was almost 400 bucks! But at least I did use it for two semesters. I even stopped selling my books back since my second semester when the bookstore gave me $5 for a brand new $ 150 math book! Now I figure I will have some great reference books!..lol I just printed my out my list of Nursing books for my first semester..15 books!..ugh kinda scares me

    Ok ladies so I figured it out there are 12 books=$785.62, and 2 modules=$65.40. And we do get to use them throughout the program. Each semester there after you have to buy two modules and a couple of books per semester. So that's about $850.00 just for books! ouch !!!:uhoh21: My meeting is in four days! Woohoo I will have more info for you guys then..yay!

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to post an update: I was accepted into the 3-Year Fall 2013 nursing program at LCC!!! I'm so excited and I just can't wait to get started. I finished all my pre-reqs in December, so I've been working on courses towards the BSN in the mean time.

    Hope nursing school is going well for all of you! Let me know how you're all doing

    Hello, do you know if you have to be taking classes at the time you take the hesi exam? I want to get on the nursing waiting list but I have yet to take the test and I have already completed all my pre-reqs.
