- Jun 29, '12 by Tommy2001Hey everyone first congrats on your acceptance and welcome to EMU Nursing! My name is Tom I have been the President of EMU's SNA over this past year and now the VP of Michigan SNA. When I got my acceptance letter I had all the same questions. Scrubs, etc. Over the past year I pledged I would help alleviate these uncertainties. This year at orientation we have scheduled a rep to be there from scrubs and beyond to help you all purchase what you need at a discounted price. You won't need your scrubs for a few weeks into the semester so no rush ok. I will answer any questions you have, but my advice is to enjoy the rest of your summer. It is true that nursing school takes a large amount of time. If you want a tip buy Potter and Perry and just start reading...lol...you will read that book from cover to cover.. The first semester starts off slow and picks up the second semester. No sweat. I'm here for any questions. Our SNA has a FB page and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you want my phone number just ask. Again Congrats! can't wait to meet you all at orientation.
- Jun 30, '12 by kerunnergirlHi Tom!
Thank you for the info! I am really excited to start the Second Degree Program in Sept. Orientation will be here before we know it. I am trying to enjoy the summer before the "madness" begins. I am taking Micro and DTC now to cut down on some of the stress in Fall and Winter. If you can think of anything else we should know please post. Thanks!

I am starting the second bachelors program in Sept. I am excited yet nervous! Do you have any words of advice? I am taking Micro and DTC now to cut down on the workload in the Fall and Winter. Thanks!
- Jul 2, '12 by cbrooks1127hello tom, what edition of potter and perry do you think we should get? and also do you know what that apa book is that is used all throughout nursing school? I remember my nursing 110 teacher telling us we should get it but I cant remember what the name of it is. thanks for all the info!
- Jul 3, '12 by cbrooks1127I also have another question for anyone who can answer it, i have heard about this ati testing we will be doing during the program, is it just to help us prepare for the NCLEX?
- Jul 3, '12 by keithmcaI think we buy the tests and they are given in class for our grades. From the 2011 Student Nursing Handbook:
The Assessment Technologies Institute (AIT) achievement tests areadministered upon completion of most didactic courses throughout the nursing
program to assess mastery of specific content...
...Students order and pay for ATI tests each semester online through the ATI website. ATI sends EMU School of Nursing a list of students who have purchased the tests. The ATI study review books an DVD’s will be sent to the School of Nursing to be distributed to the students who have purchased the tests. Fees and deadlines are established by ATI testing service...
...ATI testing is a program requirement in the courses listed above. Facultydetermine how the ATI scoring and test results will be implemented and used in a specific course. The curriculum instruction committee has established the 50th percentile rank or equivalent proficiency as the desired goal for student performance. Students MUST complete the ATI testing to progress in the nursing program. Students are expected to keep a record of test performance and review with their academic advisor...
...The following examinations will be given: Nursing Course ATI Test
NURS 208 Art & Science of Nursing I
NURS 250 Art & Science of Nursing II
NURS 270 Pharmacology
NURS 275 Essentials of Professional Nursing I
NURS 304 Childbearing Nursing

- Jul 11, '12 by cbrooks1127What is everyone doing about their books? I recieved the papers about lsevier.com but Im not sure if I should buy ebooks or just the regular text books. I know the ebooks are a little cheaper but I like having a hard copy. Also I was curious why the paper they sent us with all the books lists 7 books but when you look them up on lsevier.com they only list 6 books. Also does anybody know are these JUST the books for NURS. 208/209, if so when will we know what books we need for nurs 220 & nurs 275?? has anyone ever bought these books online from a different website for cheaper or is that not a good idea? I am trying to figure all this out so hopefully someone can help me !!
- Jul 11, '12 by keithmcaI haven't gotten any correspondence regarding books but I used ebooks on my ipad last semester. They were definitely cheaper than renting or buying/sellback plus the ability to find things using a search bar was a godsend for me. Without a tablet, I may not have liked that much. I would usually use the ipad and a computer so i could type papers etc and wasnt switching back and forth between programs. I bought my books through coursesmart, but Im not sure about the availability of this semester's texts.
- Jul 13, '12 by keithmcaNow that i finally got my packet, I see what you're talking about. When you view the ebook package online, only the Potter text, study guide and evolve access are offered. Neither the diagnosis, drug, and lab test references, nor the Medical Terminology book are shown. I'm not sure if all those handbooks are included with the "BSN NSG 208 EONLY EVOLVE" offering. The two Mosby reference are available on the apple app store. The drug ref is like $45 and the Med Dictionary is $25. And unfortunately, if you download an app to you iphone, you typically have to rebuy the app for any additional devices (laptop, tablet etc). I can send ---------- and email to clarify this.Last edit by dianah on Jul 14, '12 : Reason: Terms of Service re: posting names/identifiers
- Jul 13, '12 by Tommy2001Taking micro and DTC right now is a very smart move. I did the same and many in my clinical group didn't. They are in the classroom this summer and I'm working in the SICU making money and gaining experience.... You chose right.
