Text Book Information
Many of our “programs” require Text Books. Students are welcome to purchase their text books on their own, or through the school (except LPN, purchased entirely by student, not through school). Whatever method you select for your text books, please be aware that Text books are required at the start of your program. A current list of books by programs with ISBN #’s is available in the office.

If you purchase books on your own, please be sure you are purchasing the proper edition.  Additionally, if the required textbook includes access codes or e-packs, students must purchase new books to ensure they will have the necessary codes or other special content available to them.  Otherwise, used books are fine provided they are the proper edition.  If you choose to purchase books on your own, please note that you will be paying for the books “out-of-pocket”. Make sure you purchase your books in plenty of time. 
Books are also available for purchase through the school (except LPN and Nurse Aide) .  If you wish to purchase your books through the school, please let our office know as soon as possible.”
