I"ve decided to enter into Nursing at BCCC to obtain my ASN then go on to get my BSN at UMBC.I would like to know what do I need far as books,materials,basically anything that will help me be the best Nursing student! Please Help!!!!!
Do you mean University of Baltimore? UMBC does not have a BSN program (and if they do, I wish someone had told me!
As far as what to have on hand, other than buying textbooks (including any suggested reading in your classes), it really depends on how study. I did pretty well using my notes, copies of slideshows from lectures, and the occasional Google foray. You might want flashcards (there are some very good ones out there), an A & P coloring book, etc. Once you get into the nursing program, there are lots of other books that others can recommend to get you through classes - since I'm almost but not quite there yet, I can't give any specific titles, sorry.
I second the poster who said to start reviewing for the NCLEX as early as possible. I found a website that emails you a sample NCLEX question every day! Here it is: NCLEX Question of the Day by Email
