    Yea, they do change books. We're using a new Women's health book this quarter which we'll also be using for peds (it's a combo text), and I think you guys are using some different books than we did in the fall. A rule of thumb is that you generally won't need to buy everything they tell you to, and worst case scenario, the books are on reserve at the library usually.

    I was curious about books for nurs 204 and 337 as well. We don't need books for those classes?

    Regarding orientation, is it usually an all day event or a couple of hours in the evening?

    Thanks.

    drexel nursing graduates excel on state licensing exam
    for the year october 1, 2008 through september 30, 2009, 98.5 percent of bachelor's degree graduates of drexel's college of nursing and health professions passed the pennsylvania state licensing exam on the first try. this is the highest rate in the philadelphia region, ahead of jefferson school of nursing (96.15 percent), west chester university (93.2 percent), villanova university (92.2 percent), university of pennsylvania (91.7 percent) and temple university (83.1 percent). drexel's rate was also among the highest in pennsylvania.
    during the same year, cnhp graduated the second-most students in pennsylvania (340).
    the cnhp graduates' accomplishments were highlighted in a friday, february 26, 2010 philadelphia inquirer story, http://www.philly.com/inquirer/educa...a__s_best.html.
    according to the article, "drexel's nursing program has had a pass rate above 95 percent since its first graduating class in 2002, even as its classes have grown" and drexel "outperformed schools in all categories, from bachelor's degrees in nursing to associate degrees and other programs." dr. mary ellen smith glasgow, associate dean for nursing and undergraduate health professions at cnhp is quoted throughout the article. "to do high-volume, high-quality is quite difficult, and we're thrilled as a college that we've been able to do that," she said."

    I think it was emailed out just before orientation. If you guys haven't activated your Drexel email addresses yet, you should definitely do that. I think if you look on the website for tech services there should be information on how to set it up.

    And you definitely don't need a book for genetics- most of the material will be in the blackboard shell for the class.
