Contact the NSU Help Desk with any questions at (954) 262-4357 or at Audio and Videotaping In some programs of study, students are audiotaped and/or videotaped during class and/or clinical labs for teaching, learning, and/or grading purposes. Students may also submit assignments to the course using Kaltura or other forms of technology. Program offices will obtain authorization and releases from the student prior to any taping. Students wishing to videotape or audiotape lectures or meetings, must first obtain written permission from the individual course instructor/facilitator. In addition to taping, if it is permitted, students should continue to take notes while in class. Repetition facilitates learning. However, absolutely no audio or videotaping is authorized during exam reviews and exams. Computers in Classroom Instructors must authorize the use of the computer in the classroom. Unless the course instructor approves computer use, computers and other electronic equipment, including phones, should remain off during the class. Textbooks and Supplies The textbooks and other related reading materials and supplies required for nursing are available for purchase at the NSU Bookstore or a specified NSU online link, provided by the NSU Bookstore. Unless advised otherwise, it is recommended that students do not purchase textbooks required at other course levels until they are ready to enroll in these courses. This will ensure students have the most current required editions. It is suggested that students put their names in all of their textbooks. It is strongly suggested that students do not leave textbooks unattended in the classroom or elsewhere. The college recommends that students buy their books in ample time. After the first few weeks of the semester, the bookstore returns all books that have not been purchased to the publishers. Books may also be purchased online through the NSU Bookstore. The bookstore purchases the latest edition. If students purchase online from another vendor, they may be purchasing the incorrect edition. In addition to the printed materials, students will also need the following supplies: a watch with a second hand and a stethoscope. These are available for purchase at any local uniform shop or via the Internet. All students will be measured for an NSU lab coat and the ACON-approved uniform during the orientation. Students must have access to a computer with Microsoft Office software. Course Assignment Format Unless specifically indicated by the professor or when prior arrangements have been made, all written work turned in for grading must be typewritten and follow the latest edition of the APA format. Students must have basic computer skills, including, but not limited to, the ability to send and receive emails and attachments, save files, and format documents.
