I wanted to start this thread for all of the new (and current) students at Saint Joseph's College of Maine FNP program.
Any info, news, updates or questions/concerns could be asked here for all the new and current students.
Any advice that the current students can give us new students would be greatly appreciated
1. How many books are required for NU 501?
2. Has setting up clinicals been difficult?
3. Have the current students had any trouble communicating with your advisors? Do they get back to you promptly?
4. Overall, how has the experience been? Are you glad you are in this program?
Thanks so much!

[font=corbel]ljames13, thank you for taking the initiative to start this thread...
[font=corbel]i was also recently accepted to st. joseph's program (so i'm an example of the blind leading the blind), but i can provide some information to help fellow students with textbook purchases.
[font=corbel]if you go the st. joseph's website and go to the link "order your textbooks" you can look up the textbook required for each course or you can use this link: [font=corbel]www.edmapbookstore.com/storefront/index/stjsp
[font=corbel]the website provides a picture of the book, the isbn and the cost. however, i would definitely suggest that you search the internet first...many of these books can be purchased for less than $10 dollars (particularly the core course textbooks).
[font=corbel]i compared book prices at half.com and amazon
....[font=corbel]so for example nu 506 leadership... if you order it from the bookstore link on the st. joe's webpage the used textbook cost $62.04, but if you order it at half.com or amazon the same textbook is currently being sold for less than $5... yes! five dollars ($3.35 and $2.98 to be exact).
[font=corbel]i hope this information helps...
