Please purchase a pair of flat black shoes with non-slip soft soles. These MUST cover your total foot (heel, toes and the top surface of your foot). These shoes must be very comfortable and made of a waterproof material, such as leather. You will be spending a lot of time on your feet and you should look after them, invest in a good pair of shoes. If you buy cheap shoes, you will end up with sore feet and have to replace them frequently. Nurse shoes are not fashionable and are designed to reduce risk of injury, including spills, dropped objects or contamination. Soft soles are required to reduce noise in patient and surrounding areas.
Please purchase a fob watch - these can be purchased very cheaply from online suppliers. The silicon ones, come in a range of colours and are ideal as they can be removed and cleaned to reduce risk of infection.
Please purchase a stethoscope - these can be purchased very cheaply from online suppliers. Please purchase a basic dual head model.
