Do we ever....

  1. Hey guys,
    I was wondering.....Do we ever post nursing supplies that we are wanting to part with? For example, maybe you are upgrading to a nicer steth, do we post that we want to part with the one we currently have. (also most don't recommend going all out with the cardio III because we don't know where we will work after grad. Is this correct. I am hoping for NICU, and hated to spend all the $$$ if the babies had their own steths on the unit)

    I was asking because I know many of us are nursing students and on a budget. If we had an opportunity to take advantage of such posts, it could be helpful for all.

    I did a search but did not find this question anywhere. I was just curious.

    Thanks guys,
    Jen:wink2:

    See even my posts disappear..lol. I was just posting that, that would be considered advertising and not acceptable on this forum. I will check into this further and be happy to get back to you.

    It seems lately in ICU that all the patients are in ICU so we use disposable stets. LOL and I spent all that money on my Cardio.

    As a student I prefer to use my more expensive steth, it's so much better than the cheaper one that I have, but that's just my preference.

    You might want to try Ebay for selling items.. I sold a book on Ebay.

    I couldn't hear to check NG tube placement with the cheap scope, so I put a glove on mine and heard it just fine.

    kittyw, I know this is off the subject, but.........What instructor is teaching you to check placement of ng by listening with a stethescope? Slap that instructor hard with a copy of AJN (the OCT 2002 issue I believe).

    Good luck to you in clinicals. Keep that critical thinking going.

    Is That the AJN article that showed a picture of the NG tube wrapped up in the brain? I couldn't believe it. They had 2 nurses that listened with a stethescope and both said they heard the swoosh sound in the abdomen but the xray showed the tube in the head. Unbelievable.............

    sorry to get off the subject again.
