I really didn’t study for the critical thinking portion. I remember it being lots of priority type questions (which patient would you see first). That’s how mine was personally, not sure how everyone else’s was.

Anyone know how much the first semester will cost?  Can someone break down how much each semester will be?

 

Thanks!

It depends on if you’re an in-district or out of district student. I kid you not, I paid over $3,000 my first semester but I was considered out of district because I had moved from out of town. Classes were $1800, books $1200. That isn’t including uniforms, lab bags, extra supplies, stethoscope, shoes. If you do have financial aid, it’ll help a lot. I paid out of pocket and it was costly as an out of district student. In district students do not pay as much. The book price was actually good because for Kingwood, we use the same books for the entire 2 years. This next semester my bill is $2000 lol I am like OMG! It’s a lot for me.

You're in-district. That district thing is tied to what community college zone you're in. If you were zoned for HCC then yes, you'd be out-of-district. If you are in the LSC zone that should be in-district pricing.

From what I've been told there are a few things you can get prior. Depending on the campus you can get scrubs. I'd go into the bookstore of where you want to attend and check what color their ADN students wear. Also, I believe white shoes are standard. You also can get a stethoscope, BP cuff, trauma shears, hemostat, I'm personally opting for an iPad of some sort to put as many books as I can on it, the Saunders book (8th edition comes out in October), and the patches for the program (as well as other supplies) can be found in the respective bookstores. I defer to any who currently are in a LSC program.

Do y’all think every nursing school is the same as far as books needed? I’m aksing because my step dad is a nurse, but he went to San Jacinto, and I wonder if his old books would be the same .

Pretty much what twin said. You can get shoes/stethoscope/patches. We have navy blue scrubs for the Kingwood program. You can buy any kind of navy blue scrubs, doesn’t have to be a specific brand. Get plenty of notebooks, pens, pencils, etc. Invest in a good laptop or iPad, you’ll need it for sure. Lab packs aren’t available until close to when school starts so you may have to hold off on that. They included our hemostats and scissors. I ended up buying an extra pair because I didn’t know they were included. We use the wong’s pediatric book for anything pedi related. You can probably get that off of amazon for cheap. I bought it at the bookstore and it was like $50 to rent/$100+ to buy but you’ll need it the entire 2 years for Kingwood. So search on amazon first before renting/buying somewhere that’s crazy expensive. Also, getting a good drug guide book and a NANDA nursing diagnosis book may be helpful for clinical with care plans and remembering meds for client education. I know my clinical instructor wanted us to know why we were giving each med, how it pertains to their medical diagnosis, side effects, all client education points, precautions, drug interactions about each med we were giving and we had to explain all of it to the patients before giving each med. Those will come in handy!

I’m not sure about this. I honestly haven’t used to books that much BUT everyone is different. You will need access codes for homework for Kingwood to do vsims and prep u questions. I would wait to see what books the particular program uses.
