    Ok, just an update but I went to the bookstore at SW (610 Loop) and they had the Health Tote and the pharmacology bundle book BUT... The bookstore told me not to get the pharmacology book they had bc they were going to get the new ones next week and the one they have is an older one that we may not be using.

    I did get the Health tote since I was there; it is a black bag with different medical supplies (Syringes, gloves, gauze, etc.) I did not know we needed this for pharmacology. O_o

    The Health Tote
  5. by   eyaya

    Payday is thursday, I will definitely be stopping by.

    Were you able to find the pocket book?

    Hey I'm Erika btw.

    Which pocket book are you referring to Erika? The Pocket Nurse Student Health Tote? If yes, then its just that tote with all the goodies inside.

    I wish we knew who our teachers are! I want to get in touch with them before the semester starts to ensure I have everything I need before class starts; maybe to send the syllabus online or so.

    Nice to meet you Erika, my name is Angelica!

    Hello everyone! I called the bookstore to see what was going on with PHARMACOLOGY BUNDLE W/MYNURSINGLAB (ISBN:9780133096248)
    and they said that they have received it but I wasn't too sure on their answers :/

    But ANYWAY, I saw that the booklist has two new items and I also inquired about them to the bookstore (which they also seemed confused about that item too)....
    EDOSE ONE YEAR LICENSE 9781935389026
    EDOSE TWO YEAR LICENSE 9781935389002

    They said that they didn't have any licenses at the bookstore and recommended me to contact the Coleman Campus, I sent a message online via chat (AskColeman) and the rep was not sure what item it was. They suggested that I call the ADN department. I spoke with a lady that mentioned that they just added those items to the list. The ADN department wants everyone to have those items, oh and it is software not a book or actual license. The license part appears to be on how long the software can be used, I suppose.
    She also said that the bookstore has prob not received the item yet and that is why prob the bookstore was confused on what I was asking about the edose. I gave her my name and number since she was going to ask the person in charge of listing the required items for the class about it. She suggested that I may have to get it online and was going to call me back to let me know where to purchase. I have also tried looking for it online but a lot of sites suggest that it is sold out.

    I will update once the lady gets back with the information.

    Hello Gelibean but just to let you know you will not be using that tote you bought. Thats for when you actually get into the Nursing Program. I did Pharm this summer and never was asked to buy that tote. Sorry you spent your money on something you are not going to use till next semester. At least you will have one less thing to worry about when you get into the program.

    I stumbled across this discussion while looking for info on the Edose license needed for Pharm this fall- I'll be in the 5-8pm class. I am excited and nervous to finally get to Coleman! I haven't tried study groups yet but I live in the Montrose and am willing to try if anyone is in my area or close by.

    On my to-do list today was to scout out parking around the train stops- I was going to look around the museum area for free parking b/c dum dum me never thought about parking at Central Campus! Thanks for an easy solution! I am going to buy some prepaid parking chips for when the weather is unbearable or I'm running late- maybe I'll find someone in my neighborhood that wants to commute.

    Good luck everyone!

    Yes lovie12! I thought it was very odd that they requested the health tote for Pharmacology!! But the weird thing is that the bookstore implied that it was required and when I called the ADN department they said that they wanted the students to have everything that is "required" to ensure students are prepared... she even said that they are thinking about adding other stuff (ex. edose license/software) because it will be "essential"... either way, like you said, I will have one less thing to buy next semester :P

    Chondra, nice to meet you!! I am just as excited as you are to be at Coleman and start Pharmacology! I'm assuming since you are in the 5-8 pm class, you are taking it on Thursday correct? I live by the museum district so we are pretty close if we ever need to do some study groups. There is also a metro rail stop really close by my house so I am just going to walk to the rail and go; if it rains, I'll drive over there... BTW can you actually buy prepaid parking chips?!?! IF so, let me know!

    BTW the ADN has not called me back regarding the edose license/software and I have looked online for it and it is listed as "sold out". I am planning to call the bookstore next week to see if maybe the bookstore has received it or not. If not, then I will call back the ADN department to see what is going on or so. :/

    Hi again everyone!

    I went today to get the rest of my books and it was a mad house! I did find out that the central and the SW loop bookstore's do not have the EDose software yet. At both places a worker told me that they ordered it last week and should be in sometime around Tuesday or Wednesday. I would call before going if this is the only thing you need to still get.

    I can't wait for classes to start!

    Hi Pinky_patel! Awesome that you have all your books... I just need to get the Pharmacology book with the Nursing lab and the edose software that they are requiring us to get. Other than that, I have everything else. I am a little anxious and can not stand the anticipation.

    Has anyone received their blue clearance cards from the BON? I submitted my background check mid July and have not received anything. It is getting me nervous.
