    Yes that's the website she took me to and said these are the different softwares you will need to download on your PDA. Should be eight of them. Also I just got off the phone with the UTMB bookstore and I'm concerned about some the the books we need to get. On the list two titles say PKG so that means its not just the book. So I called and she said its a package that the publisher puts together just for the school only and they can't be sold separately. So I ask her to tell me what is sold with the book for Fundamentals of Nursing: Art & Science and she said its videos. So I think I will buy part of my books from the bookstore just because there are three of them that will be risky getting from Amazon or other sources.

    Hey everyone in the summer 2009 program. I just spoke to Bonnie Webster at UTMB regarding PDA's and software. She said she changed out a few software requirements and the new changes were up by noon today. I printed out the list this morning but it was still the old list of software. There are eight different software programs you need for your PDA. You simply buy them online and hook up your PDA device to your computer and download the software onto your PDA device. She told me if anyone has questions regarding the PDA's or software to email her at bkwebste@utmb.edu. She did say not to worry if you already purchased software because the company gives 30 day return or exchange. She told me that the books you really need to start out with from day one are Professional Nursing by Chitty, Physical Examination & Health Assess by Jarvis, Pharmacology for Nursing Care by Lehne and Patho Concepts by Porth. (These are all listed on the book list) She said the others you wouldn't need until mid June. I asked her if other editions of the books listed would work and she said you didn't want to do that because the material they review and test go in order of the edition posted. Also she said make sure you get CD with books that come with CD's. Sometimes when you purchase used they don't have CD's in them. Hope this helps. She was very nice and said be sure and tell everyone to email me with any questions that she would be happy to help in any way possible.

    Hey Bazooka, Did you see the prices of the books at the UTMB bookstore? It totaled around $700+ so I printed out each price and I guess I'll compare to what I can get with Amazon and see if its a savings by the time you pay shipping. I also read that wait until you get your UTMB badge so you get a discount on top of that. As far as the PDA software. The website that shows the various PDA's that you can purchase through the school had a memory card that has all the program on it already that you can purchase for $278(?) I was told that the PDA with software would run about $600 so that makes sense. the IPOD touch was $378 and add $278 for software so thats around $600. I was told that at orientation you can place orders for alot of this stuff so I just figured I would wait. Of course, I'm always leary of waiting until the last minute. I'll try to at least get my books and see what happens at orientation. Maybe we can get AggieQT to reply so we know for sure. I am very excited. Just need to figure out the shuttle parking stuff so when I get there at 7:00 am I'm not freaking out because I'm lost.

    UTMB Summer '09 Applicants

    Hey Bazooka and everyone its debra I had to re-register with allnurses.com so now I'm toady123. I am sooo excited about starting the summer nursing program at UTMB. I had to go back and read a lot of postings to get caught up and was disappointed that some are discouraged because they think that UTMB doesn't have their act together. I am very pleased that they gave us a months notice not several days as indicated. Also whoever thinks that needs to go back and read postings for UT-Houston, TWU and other nursing school because some of them give much less than that. Oh well I am happy to be in the program and proud that its UTMB. About financial aid. I have already found out exactly what I qualify for and sent in paperwork to release the funds which I should have by this week or next. I think UTMB has been good about returning phone calls when I had questions so again I don't feel they are disorganized, I just think they are very busy making schedules for 60 students getting reading to come in, probably 60 students getting ready to graduate April 24th, Hoorah to them!!! and still dealing with IKE issues. Good Luck everyone and see you at orientation May 1. Thanks AggieQT for all your support you have given those that have applied to UTMB. I can tell you love UTMB with all your heart. Congratulations on your graduation April 24th.
