About Me

undergrad RN
I'm a twenty-something Canadian student. After stumbling through a few years of college, I finally managed to get into the nursing school of my dreams, where I hope to graduate in 2012 with a nursing baccalaureate degree. I want to offer an honest look into how a modern nurse is educated, both good and bad. Eventually I hope to compare my education to my day-to-day career and see how it holds up. Whatever happens, it should be somewhat entertaining. Find me on allnurses.com!

Hey, You! Spam Guy!

I (and every other blogger I know) have been getting a lot of email requests asking me advertise or repost things I do not care about or wish to endorse. I do not make any money off this blog - any endorsements I may make are strictly because I am personally pleased with the results.

I DO NOT and WILL NOT repost anything someone emails me. If I want to link to something, I will find it myself.

If you want to spread the word about something, make your own blog!

Books, books, books

Today I went to the bookstore and picked up most of the books for this semester. 9 so far, and that doesn't include English or one of my classes (Foundations in Health)!

The total for the books in the picture? $743.12.

Ugghhhh... and of course there aren't any used books available. My school encourages all the students to hang onto their books for the full program.

Anyway, in case you want to have a peek at what I had to buy today, I linked them all below. So much to read!! I'm going to get a head start on some of them because new books are completely irresistible to me. That big green one on the bottom left (Fundamentals of Nursing) has about 1700 pages, small type, liberally sprinkled with the APA sourcing that I hate SO MUCH because it interrupts the flow. I've calculated that if I start now and read 20 pages every day, I should be done by mid-November. Since exams are in December, I think I'll do my best to adhere to that schedule!

oh! did you amazon.ca these? that sucks you had to buy them new... i can usually find all of my texts at amazon for wicked-low prices.

good luck!

what an awesome idea! I'm going to see if I can find them. It's the reference books that cost the most, and I'm pretty sure the college bookstore charges by weight ><
