    The care plans in health assessment are extensive at first but my teacher would cut down on how much we had to do if we got it right a couple times in a row.

    The care plans for clinicals are extensive and time consuming and make sure to get them done before clinicals because you wont have time during clinicals and they will ask you questions about it.

    Hey, probably a stupid question but I'm looking online to buy my books - do you think I could get by with the older text versions?

    It depends on the book and class. Most of my books were 1 edition older.

    Found great deals on books for my first semester classes:

    I got Jarvis Health Assessement 5e for 3 bucks. And Health and Gerontoloy was just 40 brand new.
    Just need to find a cheap Prof. of nursing book and I'm all set.

    What book did you use for pharmacology and Med Surg?

    Med Surg was Medical-Surgical Nursing: Patient-Centered Collaborative Care, 6e. Pharmacology was Pharmacology for Nursing Care 7th edition. I dont remember actually using the Gerontology book. That class was totally common sense.

    sweet - thanks for the info.

    hey, did you know anybody that took health asmnt online? I see they have a few being taught online but I didn't think we were allowed to take anything online.

    The online class is either for Rn to BSN or LPN to BSN students. The only online class we can take is the elective.
