Well it looks like to wonderfully organized system at Loyola has reared its ugly head. After I submitted all the paperwork they requested, jumped through all the hoops ie: immunizations, uniforms delivered, etc....they decided the grade I received in a class wasn't good enough (even though I retook it with an A) so they disqualified me from the program. Good luck to all in the ABSN prgoram. I really wish I would be with you.

I'm just finishing up. The summer session is pretty intense because you have pharmacology and pathophys at the same time. Definitely manageable though. Just don't expect a lot of beach time! I actually found the fall session much more stressful (not intending to scare you). If you put your mind to it you will definitely make it through just fine!

I do have some textbooks I'm selling, but they're already up on half.com.
I would DEFINITELY suggest buying your textbooks online, it's much much cheaper. I'm also keeping a lot of my books for reference in the future. Some of the books were completely pointless to have and I didn't use at all.
Definitely no need to buy the book for the Leadership course (in the Spring). I never even opened it. Also, you really don't need to buy any of the Research books (also the Spring). I never used that book, and she asked us to buy an APA book for one exercise...I just went to the library and used theirs.
Other than that I would suggest buying the books. I know some people who got away without them or by sharing them for some classes (such as Peds), but I did use my books for the other courses and like I said before, if you know you'll be going into that specific subject area it's a good idea to have some sort of textbook on it.
