Required Textbooks — All students in the nursing program will receive their required nursing textbooks with a fee charged along with tuition. This will be at a discounted rate-cheaper than you can purchase at the bookstore or online and will include all access codes needed. Buying books on your own will not be an option-the fee will be charged based on the course you are taking. The only exception will be for repeaters that show proof of purchase of required books/access codes from the previous semester.
