Nursing Textbooks for Nursing Students

Postby Patrick » 19 Aug 2012, 16:42

Hey Guys:

Good morning from Columbia, SC, USA!

I am a member of the faculty in the College of Nursing at the University of South Carolina (Columbia, SC) and am considering developing a non-profit organization to collect and then donate nursing textbooks to student nurses worldwide! As a member of the faculty I know that we ALL have way too many books on our shelves that could be donated to a better purpose ... the education of students across the world! My intent is to collect these books from faculty and book publishers across the US and then distribute to schools of nursing in countries that have a need for those books!

Please let me know your thoughts on this process and/or if you feel that it is a need!

Many thanks,
