    Actually yeah they did, here is what they gave me:

    Development Through The Life-Span
    Berk Laura
    Pearson Education, Inc.
    (latest edition)

    I think this is it on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Development-Th.../dp/0205491251
    Different publisher again, but I would think it would still be it. You can always ask them at orientation if the publisher really matters before making the trip out to the bookstore.

    Here's the link for the books that I ordered from Amazon. I believe all of the information matches up:
    ...

    Textbook of Med-Surg (recommended):
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0781759781

    ...
    They changed the med-surg book? I guess that means none of us can sell ours. Oh well, I wasn't really planning on it anyway, I like having the reference around.
    Make sure you do buy both volumes of the Brunner and Suddarth book, the link is just for volume 1.

    Including the PDA programs that is definitely more books than we were required to buy!

    Also, do you know when the 25% off discount at Skyscape expires and if there is a code to get the discount? (pm me if there is)
    thanks!

    Don't know if there is an expiration for the Skyscape discount because it's through the school, but there is no code for it. They automatically apply the discount during checkout.

    Where you required to get RN notes and nursing process approach and the nursing diagnosis handbook in PDA format?
  8. by   Bayley
    For the PDA we were required to get everything except RNotes, that one was just recommended.
  9. by   Bayley
    I think the nursing diagnosis handbook we could purchase as either a textbook or pda version, but I got the pda version as I figured it'd be one less book to carry.

    Hey I also bought the same books but my peer advisor went through the booklist with me yesterday and told me what is necessary and what is not. She said:
    A nursing process approach for PDA - not needed
    But the TEXT version of the Nursing Diagnosis Handbook
    Applying Nursing process - not needed
    Stedman's dictinary- not needed can get everything off google
    Essentials of Nursing Leadership and Management- not needed
    Get the recommended study guide and the Rnotes (PDA version)

    I thought it ok, a little out-drawn. I was with the evening students so I figure that is why I didn't see you. They left us in the room for almost an hour, I guess they forgot about us. Anyway, I'm sorry that I will not get my nursing kit today since I can't be there. But I did let Ms. Gallo know, since I couldn't find Ms. Rubenstein. Please let me know if I missed anything else important today. Well I am definitely getting nervous and anxious at the same time my heart is , can't wait for the first day of classes.

    I also faxed in my uniform order, but no one seems to have gotten there uniform as yet, even the people who ordered at the fitting. So I am not worrying about that anymore since we only need it for clinicals and that is like 2 or 3 weeks into the semester.

    I'm curious what nursing kit is everyone talking about
  13. by   kcsparkles
    Oh they charged us in our Nursing Lab fee for a kit that contains certain things needed for lab, for example I believe the stethoscope is in it. She showed us a small navy blue duffel bag, but she didn't go thru what was included. Today they will find out.

    Wow I wish I was in your shoes right now down the home stretch. What are your plans post graduation. THey went alot into the Pace program, etc. and also told us that maybe in 5 or so years all Associates nurses will have to get a Bachelors or higher.
