So I just received my acceptance letter for the BSN program at Douglas College! The letter included the supply/book list, instructions, etc.. but a blood pressure cuff wasn't on the supply list? They only list a stethoscope, gloves, scrubs, shoes, books, and penlight. No BP cuff.
Isn't that kind of odd? Maybe they would either have them for us at school, or they'll tell us to buy one during the orientation.

As another possibility, maybe your school provides on in a lab kit. My school has a lab kit that is provided at orientation that has all the supplies we will need to practice in lab, BP cuff, gloves, syringes, all that jazz. It is included in the program fee for each semester. We will only use the BP cuff for out of clinical practice though because all the sites provide there own for each patient as infection control. SO either your lab will have them for students, or you will get a lab kit with on in it.
