    Did anyone get just the books option, I was just wondering, the quote they gave us for the bundle, is that all new books or is that used and new? I got each book separately online and I spent around $400 including one of the recommended books. I just haven't decided if I got a good deal or not, I know that it is a lot cheaper than the individual prices they had on the book sheet.

    They don't give you an option between new & used so I'm pretty sure they are all new. That sounds like a good deal to me...but you won't have the nifty online access that they demonstrated at orientation. Also, I don't think there is a book only option. They only let you choose between ebooks only or ebooks + hard copies.

    Also, I was at the bookstore yesterday ordering name tags (btw they are almost $12 each--ouch!!) and they don't have the 101 books yet. They said it probably won't be until close to/after Christmas. What a nice, expensive gift that we will all be buying ourselves :P

    You don't go into the hospital for first semester. You'll be in a nursing home first then sub acute care next. All you are basically doing is CNA type stuff 1st semester. 2nd semester is when it gets fun!

    Sorry...my communication was bad. I know this already. My question was related to knowing where you will be posted. A young lady I know told me she was emailed where she was going to be posted. Sorry. I communicated poorly..thanks for trying to help!!!

    The ebook only option was the one I saw on the bookstore's website. I decided to go old school and just get the hard copies from Amazon and I've already started getting my books! I've also been getting supplies from there, I have yet to get a name tag and I had no idea it would be that much Thanks for the info!

    I was an alternate so they said they ordered my first name tag but they never said when i would get it or where to pick it up. Any alternates here who ended up getting their name tags?

    Hi everyone, this is my first time on here. I may not even be asking in the right place, but, just want honest feedback on whether or not 41 is too old to get started in nursing. I have no undergraduate degree, all I have is a dream. Just went through a major transition in careers and now I'm trying to find out what I'm going to be when I grow up. Any insight would be helpful. I'm going to see the CSN counselor tomorrow and see what they say. This is a whole new world to me.

    Thanks in advance for any input!
    I know I am super late to respond to this but if you are in the Las Vegas area I suggest you go to CSN and talk to the professor that teaches the Nursing Toolbox class. I can't name her by name per the rules of this forum but everyone there knows who she is. She got her RN at 49 and is an incredible, compassionate, knowledgable nurse, instructor, and mentor.

    I know her name because I just took the toolbox but I don't think they let you post names here. But I am 46 so I don't think you are ever too old and there are people in their 60's who have gone through and graduated!!!
