I always recommend Timbuk2 if you're looking for a messenger bag. I have the medium classic messenger with laptop compartment. My brother, who is just finishing up med school used the same bag during his program (his actually might be smaller)

I'll be starting nursing school in the summer, but Ive used it for most of my pre-reqs. I can let you know how it works for nursing school once the summer is over, although I've never been the type of lugg a million books to class so I'm guessing it should be fine.

From my experience though, if you do carry a ton of books, I wouldn't recommend a messenger bag, at least for me (even wearing it properly) carrying a bunch of books for a long time definitely is not comfortable.

Timbuk2

*note you can find them much cheaper on eBay or other online retailers.

I am finishing up my 1st year of nursing school and I have to say that I have gone through 2 carts on wheels is the best way to describe it lol. I had my books debound the first semester of school thinking that I would only have to carry my smaller and less heavy books and just take the sections we were doing over but as it turned out we didnt always stick to those sections....so I ended up taking the binder that my book is now in. 2nd semester we gained a few books and it got even harder to tote those so hence the 2 carts on wheels. A lot of my classmates have gone to hobby lobby and gotten the large scrapbooking totes on wheels and they have lasted and seemed to work. I will be picking one of those up soon as my 2nd cart is about to bite the dust lol....Good luck to you!:nurse:

I use a rolling backpack. Uncool, yes. Does my back ache? No.

I tried switching my books out between classes but I found that I just didn't have time to do this because we have to park a good ways away from the bldg. A lot of the other students either don't take books to class or they use the rolling backpacks or luggage.

Melosaur, I couldn't agree with you more!

I read the chapters before lecture. I bring only my binder to class and take very good notes. My heavy books stay at home! Then I put it all together to study.

It took me a whole term to realize that I wasn't gaining anything by lugging those books into lecture. I actually think I'm able to pay more attention to what is being said when I'm not busy finding it in the book.

Plus, it's nice to travel light. I can't imagine pulling one of those libraries on wheels!

We are required to bring our books to class :mad: So I'll be needing a good rolling backpack myself. The only problem is I can't find one around here and don't have enough time to order one online(or money for that matter)...

My first class is this Monday so I guess I may end up going with the suitcase on wheels idea. Beats the heck out of carrying all those books on my back:D and I can get one at Wal-Mart for less than twenty bucks...Ah, the life of a nursing student :nurse:
