    Has anyone priced out books? I went to the bookstore online and books are around $1200. Good thing we will use some of them for several semesters.

    For anyone that is in the program, what are your thoughts about ebooks and are all books needed that are "suggested"?

    I was just pricing them and OMG, books will cost more then tuition.

    How are you guys able to find out what books you would need? I have the degree plan that we received so I know what classes I will be taking, but I have no idea how to figure out what books I need for those classes.

    If you go to the online bookstore and put in your course it will give you a list of books.

    I don't know how it will be for your first semester but I know in semesters past the book store will have all your books together, maybe one or two that is not in the package and price is set accordingly. But that might have changed.

    I personally like to turn the pages rather than reading on a computer and I think some teachers will not allow computers in the classroom.

    I think I am going to buy the real deal. I love e-books, but I think it might be better to get books.

    I just priced out some of the recommended books on half.com and Amazon and they are so much cheaper than buying through the bookstore. I think I will be going that route for books!

    NW Scrubs has really reasonable scrubs and they're offering 15-25% off depending on how much you spend. I just bought my 2 sets of Landua true red scrubs and 1 set of white scrubs for less than $100. The white scrubs are Dickies. I have heard that Dickies are really good for being stain resistant.

    I was afraid to buy any scrubs because when I called the nursing department she said we had to have a specific brand and style and wouldn't tell me. She said Scrubb Express would be at orientation so I figured I'd check them out first. What time is orientation on Tursday? I can't find my letter:/

    I think it is at 9:00 or 9:30. I'll double check my letter when I get home.

    From what a friend in the fall semester told me as well as from other threads on here, the scrubs for class are Landau in True Red. Clinicals are all white, no girly tops/empire waist - PLAIN, with white shoes.
