Greetings everyone. I just finished my first semester of nursing school at RCC and I must say it was a great experience. My biggest tips are buy a good rolling backpack such as the husky rolling tollbag, purchase a printer if you don't already own one, SAVE MONEY NOW (you will have so much to purchase before the program starts.), rent books or purchase used books to save money, and develop/research organization tips for nursing school. Good luck you guys !!!

What if you have a laptop do you sill recommend a roller backpack if the biggest books are on there? Since we have to buy course points unless the stop using that program... did you buy the books that go with the course points? Or just use the e books

I had 85 points when I applied. The application period for spring 2017 was very competitive during the time. It's not always like that though, so don't worry. I purchased the husky rolling tool bag from Home Depot. If you sign up for the SMS alerts regarding sales you will receive a five dollar off coupon which I used. I would not recommend the 14 inch because you cannot fit much in there. If you typically don't bring much to campus, the 14 inch might be just right for you. However, keep in mind that nursing school changes a lot of habits so you might find yourself bringing much more than expected to campus. I would still purchase a rolling bag even if you have a laptop because you will need to bring binders, notebooks, other supplies, and possibly other books that aren't in ebook format. Wearing a backpack with all these items can hurt your back. Coursepoints offer the ebook online with the content so do not purchase the book AND coursepoints, it will be a waste. For example, if you are required to purchase fundamental nursing coursepoints, do not purchase a fundamentals textbook because the textbook will be available online with your coursepoints.

I have this and my email pulled up while trying to distract myself. I doubt they send it out like midnight though. If the emails are sent out tomorrow it will probably be in the afternoon and throughout the day.

I know this is your second time applying I hope you get in. That will give me confidence to keep trying if I don't get in. Are you going to try and keep applying or apply elsewhere?
