    I bought mine through my bookstore because they came in a bundle. I went on Amazon and priced everything and it was actually cheaper through my bookstore! I was shocked!! I spent about $650.

    Do a search for the courses. The books are now required by law to be listed. And all the ISBN's for fall are there. I will warn you though, most of the fundamentals books are packaged together in a bundle.

    I'm in section B. Which is the smallest section! Well we should be in Fundamentals and Med-Surg lectures together!
  14. Ivy Tech Fall 2010 ~ Fort Wayne

    I was just wondering if anyone else on here is going to be entering the nursing program at Ivy Tech's Fort Wayne campus this fall. Would love to get to know a few people before the semester actually starts!
