RNBSN Textbooks

Online RNBSN program only

RN-BSN students are strongly encouraged to review this list prior to purchasing or renting textbooks as textbook editions will change from time to time. Students should make every effort to purchase books and have them delivered prior to the first day of class. This is especially important in a five-week course. Textbooks may be purchased directly from the publisher’s website or from third-party vendors such as efollett.com, Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble Online. The efollett.com site also offers textbook rentals at a significant savings.

When purchasing or renting textbooks, students are encouraged to search for textbooks using the ISBN number and not the author name, textbook title, or textbook edition.
