What did your schools require you to get for Nursing supplies or what did you find useful to have? I am currently a CNA so I already have some good nursing shoes and a stethoscope and cuff.

First of all congrats and good luck! i am about to start my 3rd semester of lpn and i love it. I would def recommend highlighters.. those little plastic tabs for your book, dozens of #2 pencils (i put pencils everywhere in my car, purse, book bag.. to not be without one and running late for a 0730 test) and a large calender!! and if you think it would be beneficial a recorder if allowed. We were required to have steth, bpcuff, pen lights, basic calculator, solid white leather shoes and specific clinical uniform and blue lab scrubs. hope this helps

Good luck! :)
