Hi there!

Im wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what books to get for first year nursing students? I'm attending VIU in British Columbia, Canada. It will be awhile before I get a books list but I like to plan ahead and thought maybe I could price some out online!

Only the school can answer that.

It's great that you are motivated to get studying right away! I would call the bookstore at your school and see if they are willing to provide you a list of books. That being said, the booklist does change From semester to semester at some schools so I'm not sure that I would be purchasing anything just yet.
