    I don't have orientation until July 21st so I don't have any info on that yet. I'm bored waiting and was curious.

    I know for the Indy campus we were able to buy all of our books in a bundle for first semester. For the second semester we are only required to purchase books for OB/Peds. I am not sure if the other campuses offer the nursing bundle or not, but the bookstore would know!

    We had to get a Fundamentals book, pharmacology, dosage calc, Med surg, can't remember what else. I know it cost me a fortune though.

    Is there anyway you can give me the exact titles and/or authors?

    go to ur local bookstore and ask for the ISBN. They will give you a whole page of books, titles, and ISBN's. This is what I did. This way you don't buy the wrong book, I think different campus's have some different books.

    Be prepared... it was about $900 for that first semester. But you use most of those books for the rest of the program. I don't think the new book lists are up yet on campus connect... my list is old and wouldn't be right or I would tell you.

    Were the other bookstores bought out by Follett like Richmond campus was? They won't give ISBN numbers anymore. Nice, huh?

    Per IT, the new book list for fall should be available on their website ( for each school) the week of Aug 4th.
    I am in the transitional, already did the 5 weeks, and our books were approx 600.00. I was told by the teacher that we should only have to purchase one more book for the rest of the school year.
