    First semester is probably the most expensive. 2nd semester books were about $250 used for me, plus $130 for ATI. I paid $140 for 3rd semester books, also used, and $130 again for ATI. 4th semester (FT) will be the toughest time wise. Med surge 2 is condensed from 16 weeks into 10 weeks, and there is A TON of work. the next 16 weeks is precpetor, which you follow your preceptor during her full shift. I am sending my kids to Tn with their dad (we're still married, he got a better job there) after Christmas. A few of my friends are quitting work for 4th semester.

    Yikes...I guess I'll be trying to work 2 jobs during the summers so I can save a bit more once things get really tough in the end :/

    Andi311 I sent you a message with the link

    If anyone else has trouble finding it, just send me a message and I'll send the link. I think it's against the rules to post links to fb around here

    per week, I'd say about 10 or so. I don't read the text much, just what I highlighted or marked during lecture. Bad, I know. I read supplemental books instead because they are condensed versions of the book usually! My faves are the Straight A's books and the Fort Dummies books. I also do the questions in the study guides as well. I'm passing, so it works for me!


    As far as the FB group, if it's set to private it's hard to search for. You'll have to be added by someone who is in there already!

    Yay! I'll probably get there around 7:30-7:45 because I'd like to get a good seat in the front. See everyone tomorrow!
