In regards to the Craven book does that mean we should get all 3 Craven books listed or just the main textbook? I'm assuming all 3, just wanted to see what everyone else is doing.

Most likely the package. After looking at other sites seems that package is the cheapest at beck's. You might be able to fine the book alone but seem cheaper to just get the 3 pack.

So all we need for the 1st semester is just the Craven book package (978-1-4511-7058-0)?

It does not mean that's the only package of books we need; however, if we don't have any others now we can get by with cravens only. however, there are some others, like fundamentals questions and answers (can't think of the author now) that is an important supplement.

hiya, all!

Whatcha guys think of the mandatory "workshop/orientation"? i understand that the first day of orientation at MXC was extremely important, it seems the rest is just informational... I would have appreciated if the latter was optional...

by the way, i got crazy and got all but one of the required books today... Overtime, here I come!!!

Anyways, I'm scheduled w/ **** Mon & Wed at 11-1250 BW clinicals @ OLR on TUES.

see you guys in class!!!

Hi Everyone,

My name is Charlotte and I am in the day program at Truman.

I so wish remembered that this was the place to figure out everything earlier. So I am a bit late to the party or rather the discussions regarding all that confusion with the text books and such. I still have not gotten anything, because I just got the money to purchase books a few days ago. I was trying to save money, as we are very tight on cash... but I am starting to think I am just going to pick up the package at Becks tomorrow after our final day of this silly boot camp, because I don't want to be empty handed on Monday. However there are so many different opinions in this thread it is hard to decide what is the best option.

Regarding the uniforms, I was very misinformed by someone in the Nursing office. And was told that the uniforms would be on campus for pick up. I went and no one was there that day (late July). Then I was told I would be informed when they had arrived and still nothing. So like an idiot I have been waiting for an email or call. Now I am seeing you all have been picking them up at the store. So my question is did you need the receipt we got, when we ordered them? Because I had to hand mine over to my Aunt who is helping me with school costs. I just am trying to find out ASAP in order to organize my next two days. I am my mom's primary caregiver, so I must really budget my time. And now I am rushing around picking up uniforms and books all last minute. I only have help from the Department. of Aging 8am to Noon Monday-Friday (which I am grateful for), but it means I don't have much time to work with.

Well I have rambled enough. Any feedback would be apreciated. Looking forward to getting to know you all. :-)

@Charlotte. Do not despair. I did not need my receipt when I picked my uniform up from the Elston location. There is a consensus that the book Fundamentals of Nursing, written by Craven, et al, will be our primary book for this semester (and most likely the next two years).

@Dave. I have ***** and her class is listed on blackboard, along with a very detailed schedule, powerpoints, handouts, etc. All this information I can easily access thanks to that wonderful blackboard instructional yesterday (insert sarcasm emoticon here).
