CONGRATULATIONS purple monkey, monkey face and onelove
BIG congrats to the two monkeys , and onelove!
Has anyone applied for ACU Brisbane? That's my 1st preference, but I've also applied QUT Kelvin Grove B.Nurs (only because it's closer to me).
Hi monkey face, I'm at Logan campus. Are you studing a BMid or BNur? I've not looked into nursing subjects, but perhaps we may have some overlapping subjects?! I would definately love to catch up and bounce study questions.
Well done OneLove! Hopefully you can get semester one under your belt before bub arrives. I have a June bub - I love winter bubs, so cuddly.
I am looking at the textbooks required for first semester and the cost is overwhelming me. Can any of the ladies who are studing at GU suggest ones that are must have and perhaps advise on the ones which can be done without (or where I can use the library-owned ones).
If any of you are looking at selling 2nd handbooks that would be great too. I am willing to pay postage.
Let us know your booklist and others from other uni's may have them to sell too.
Yup a BNUR- logan campus. I will have to check out both degrees to see if there are any cross over subjects.
Where did you find the textbooks required, Purple Monkey?
From the looks of it, no cross over subjects.
That's ashame we dont have any crossover subjects! To find the textbooks required - go into the course profile and there at 3.1 - Learning Resources - Required Resources.
Hope that makes sense monkeyface!
RHJ, my booklist is:
Midwifery Preparation for practice Ed2 (Pairman)
Illustrated Dictionary of Midwifery (Gray)
Midwifery COC (Homer)
ANMC - National competency standards for the midwife
Essentials of human anatomy and physiology (Marieb)
Potter and Perrys Fundementals of nursing (Crisp)
Physiology of childbearing with anatomy and related biosciences (Stables)
Lewis'Meidcal-Surgical Nursing: Assess an Management of clincal probs (Brown)
Patient and person: interpersonal skills Ed4 (Stein-Parbury)
If you are wishing to sell 2nd hand books - I am eager to grab them! Just PM me.
Also, if anyone can comment on which books are essential and which can be done without - that would be great!
Thanks Purple Monkey.
Also, have a look for textbooks on http://www.bookdepository.co.uk it's cheaper than aussie sellers, including a lot of students reselling prices. Postage is free too, so that is a bonus.
http://www.textbookexchange.com.au is where students sell their textbooks after the semester is finished.
Have a look through and see if any of the textbooks you will be needing are also used for other, later subjects. I have a few that will be needed for the whole 3 years for diff subjects, which means students don't usually sell them until after they finish the degree, by which stage there is a new addition.
Local library may also have the textbooks. I know one woman that borrowed all her texts at the library and if they didn't have it, she bought old editions for next to nothing, which were almost the same as the newest edition.
