I just looked it up and it says that the basic ipod touch has 8GB of memory... so, i think itouch is actually a good choice for this unbound medicine thing...
Just a FYI...Im starting at USD MEPN in Aug and the director of the program said we should get an I-Touch...she made a good point, the I-Touch has no camera, any phone or PDA with a camera will not be allowed in the hospital. So that way you can access your e-books in our down time or if you have to look something up....the have different ones with larger memory, 32 GB is $400, thats the biggest
Good luck with your classes!
sooperdooper, they told us at the orientation that they no longer provide those because too many students complain of its bad quality...
I guess changes happen fast considering I started this past January (cohort 17). I sold mine for an ipod touch :) Since you dont get a PDA, do you not get nursing central now? Because that software is definitely worth it on any PDA. Did they lower the orientation fee to reflect no PDA/nursing software?
Hey guys... this may sound like a stupid question probably....:doh: we don't need a student parking permit to park at RB campus, right?.... i'm assuming not, since they haven't mention it... am i wrong? Oh, Danielle, I hope your job is going well :)

You dont need a permit at any NU campus.
PatMicNic, thanks for sharing... Hey, do you recommend getting the $400 one or can we get away with the basic one 8GB (i think it's like $249 or something)... I mean do you really need all that memory? Also, my Blackberry dsnt have a camera. Is that going to be allowed in the hospitals then?
Sooperdooper, to answer your questions: we still get a nursing central, we just need to use our own platform for it. Also, our orientation fee was $1395. How much was yours?
$1500 even... I sold my PDA for $255 tho ;p
Well, in that case... they didn't save us much.... cutting down the orientation fee only by $105!
Well... I did some research.... and it sounds like phones (with or without camera) may not be allowed in some clinical facilities. Since this would be problematic, I am thinking of investing in to the "ipod touch", just like you, Ashley. :) It appears that many nursing students prefer them to PDA's - not that it's surprising But I think maybe it's worth the money...
YAY! I am very excited to hear all this about the ipod touch...i guess it was a good idea! I'll be buying mine shortly! :D:D:D
Hey, which one are you thinking of getting? There's like 3 and range in price from $230 to $400... bigger memory comes at a higher price :)
i might get the 16GB because i have a lot of music and what not. but i don't know, 8GB would probably be enough...
I was thinking of getting the 16GB one too... not because i have a lot of music, but simply because i want to be able to use the memory in the future to download other helpful nursing software like epocarys, RNotes, etc... stuff that I read nursing students find extremely helpfull.... I just don't want to be limited by the 8GB storage....
