    I received fund of success and test success textbooks today. I was expecting 100 or so pages, but it is more like around 400~600? pages (i haven't opened them yet, it is based on thickness of the book).

    Someone help me out~~~

    Is this required textbook for RNSG 1209 as well?

    TITLE:Fundamentals of Nursing: The Art and Science of Nursing Care
    FORMAT:CaféScribe Format
    AUTHOR:Taylor
    EDITION:1st
    COPYRIGHT YEAR:2010
    PUBLISHER:Lippincott Williams & Wilkins
    ISBN:9781609136680
    DIGITAL:$111.99

    And where can I find textbook information for RNSG 1144 and 1146? they're not showing up when I searched on my lonestar page.

    Also why is RNSG 1105 and 1209 requiring same textbook but different editions? They both listed Nutrition Essentials for Nursing Practices but RNSG 1105 listed 3rd edition and RNSG 1209 listed 6th edition w/access code.... Do we still have to buy both of them?

    Hello, I currently live in Denver and will be moving to Houston May 2012. Im in my last pre req here and am looking for nursing schools in Houston. Does Lonestar have anything near downtown Houston or close by? I dont mind a minimal commute but dont want to spend an hour driving.

    Welcome to Houston! If you're looking for community college nursing schools in the inner city I would suggest HCC Coleman Center, Lonestar is more for the outter City limits (Northern/NWest/NEast-ern). Thats why all campuses are more towards the outter parts of Houston. HCC is mostly inner city. There's also San Jacinto Community College and they have a Nursing program but againt thats a little further out but in the South/SouthEast outter city parts. Hope that helps.
    Oh! And which ever you choose, make sure the school is in district otherwise they might charge you more per credit hour.

    Thank you JayCazares. Whats the difference between in district and out? I know I will have to pay out of state tuition..at least for 1 semester but not sure about the district stuff. School is cheaper there anyway. Out of state tuition is equal to what I pay here for in state...

    Your "distrist" is based on which school district you live in and therefore which district you pay property taxes to. I am in-district for HCC (Houston Community College) since I live near downtown. I choose to go to Lonestar instead because I feel it's a better school. I pay roughly double the tuition as students who are in district.

    Good luck!

    Is there a map or a link that anyone knows of showing the districts and the colleges in them? I havent found a place to live yet so Im flexible. My brother lives near downtown and I may stay with them for a while when I first move there but I can move if I need to. I think either way its going to be cheaper than what I pay here.

    @flylikeabird The bookstore website is very confusing... but I assume that the book you're talking about is just the regular Fund of Nursing that we're going to be using for RNSG 1105. I would say not worry about it. The only books I'm buying for RNSG 1209 are Documentation & Nursing process by White, and Professional Nursing by Chitty. I noticed they require Nutrition too, but a different edition. I purchased the latest edition (6th ed I think...) and that's the one I'm going to be using for both classes. I guess the difference between the editions in the website is just a typing error.

    RNSG 1144 should require the same books as RNSG 1105 since it's just a continuation of that class. We need to purchase the basic and advanced kits though.

    The book for RNSG 1146 is Legal & Ethical Issues for Health Professionals by Pozgar. 2nd ed, ISBN: 9780763764739. I got that information from mylonestar.

    @alex1987 Thank you for clearing up my confusion!

    One last question! do you know which classes we need to buy access codes? I know people talked about access codes from previous posts, were they talking about the basic and advanced kits for RNSG 1144?

    Some books come with access codes and/or cds. I haven't received all my books yet but so far the ones I have that came with access codes and cds are: Health Assessment in Nursing (both), Dosage calculation (Cd only), Nutrition (access code only) Taylor's clinical skills (both) and Taylor's clinical skills checklist (access code only). All the access codes can be accessed through this website http://thepoint.lww.com so I guess if you get an used book without access code then you can purchase it from there.
