    If you usually go into the nurses office and ask someone in there for the reading material they will usually give it to you.

    Seconding this. If anyone goes and gets anything (syllabus, etc), please do let us know so we can all rush to the office as well.

    I have not gone up there yet (I hate that drive!), but I am getting my books on Monday, and I thought about calling the nursing office to see if we could get a syllabus.

    Hey, Just an FYI I went to the NW bookstore today and they did not give me two of the books on the list, the kozier study guide and the med-surg companion. I grabbed my schedule instead of the book list at orientation (which was dumb) and assumed (even dumber) that they gave me all of the books I was supposed to have. Just thought I'd let everyone know Because now I have to go stand in that ridiculus line again.

    Oh and I'm thinking on selling my nutrition book back, but maybe I should keep it. Any opinions?

    Oh and another thing I didn't go to the nursing office because by the time I got to my car with the 2 heavy bags of books I didn't feel like walking back in. the snow didn't help motivating me either . I will go tomorrow after my class. but did anyone go today?

    I got my books at Western today, and the woman getting the books didn't get the Kozier or Med-Surg study guides at first, but did ask if I wanted them - which, of course, I did. In total, I got eight books: "Nurse's Handbook of Health Assessment," "Understanding the Nursing Process," "Medical-Surgical Nursing: Patient-centered Collaborative Care" (two volumes), Med-Surg Nursing study guide, "Fundamentals of Nursing" (two books), and the "Fundamentals of Nursing" study guide. (They ran around $470, I think?) I also had to go to Downriver, and I grabbed some bandage scissors, penlight, tape measure, and a nifty-looking Med-Surg Notes pocket guide. And, of course, a bajillion pens, notebooks, etc.

    As far as Nutrition goes, I sold mine back long ago (I had it... spring 2008, I think?), but I'd have probably kept it, had I known it can apparently come in handy.

    Didn't go to the nursing office myself. Just didn't have time. :\

    Hey everyone!

    I went and got my books at Western yesterday as well, and ended up with a total of 8. I hope they are the right ones. LOL! It sucks because you can't really match up the ISBN number because they put the sticker over it w/the school bar code on it. Of course I'll worry that they are they wrong ones until we get to class. I don't want to open the packages, and them be wrong, and not be able to return them.

    I did not get a chance to talk to anyone at the NW campus either. I was going to call, but have not had a chance w/work and finishing up this semester.

    Hopefully I (or one of you) will get a chance to do so before they close down for winter break.

    Oh, and @ Cayles1102 -- I kept my Nutrition book only because I could not sell it back (I took it in 2007, and they went to a new book the following semester). So much of the information that is in the book we can find (easily) on-line, that I don't think it'd be a big deal if you sold it back.

    The only books that I can think of that we really should probably keep are our Patho and A & P books (and the Med Math one, but that's a given.)

    Unfortunately, I don't think you'll be able to return them even if they are wrong. When I bought mine yesterday, I was told that "right now, all book sales are final; no returns."

    I just took another gander at the list and compared the titles to my books, and I didn't get the clinical companion, either. I mistook the SG for a companion, when they're actually, apparently, two totally different things. I searched for the ISBN # for the companion, and it doesn't look at all like any of the books I have. Oy. No time to head back to Western today, but I might be able to swing by tomorrow.

    Has anyone gone to the uniform/supplies place (can't remember the name - the one on the price list page)? I'm planning to head there today to get my pin, name tag, and patches. I might also get the pleated top/pant set there, but I want to check a few places online first. We don't need them until clinicals anyway, do we? (Not planning to wait that long, just not in a hurry.)

    I checked my isbn's on the inside front title page, because i opened mine and they were all ok.
