Are these sneakers acceptable for nursing school? - Page 3Register Today!
- Aug 17, '12 by DutchRN09Trust me, you do not want shoes that have anything like mesh. You def. don't want anything soaking through.
- Aug 17, '12 by RNsRWe1: they are not all white, as required. Which means the school would reject them.
2: not only will they allow you to have liquid soak through, but they'll also STAIN instantly. You can't clean mesh as well as you'd want to (believe me). One drop of blood is gonna stay there forever. Which means YOU should reject them.
- Aug 17, '12 by Kier721I just bought a pair of nurses mate shoes for clinicals, not too expensive and very comfortable.
- Aug 17, '12 by ImKosherI don't think those mesh linings will fly in your program. All leather, means no mesh, no nylon, or no holes for fluids to soak. On Amazon click on refine search, and click on leather when searching for a shoe. You can even pick white to narrow it down. Good Luck!Last edit by ImKosher on Aug 17, '12
- Aug 17, '12 by FlyingScotMesh=GROSS!!!! You'll never be able to get the chunks out. Not yelling at you but in general it mystifies me why when students have clear instructions as to the type of gear they're supposed to get they go out and buy something that totally violates said instructions. Personally, unless you have some sort of condition that makes these the ONLY shoes you can wear, I'd take them back and buy something that fits within the guidelines. That way there isn't any question and you don't start your program looking like you are trying to break the rules before you even start! On a nicer note. Good luck in school and in your future endeavors.
PS. Those Timberlands were super cute!

I know my school would not find the shoes you mentioned acceptable. Better to ask and be sure than sorry.I just bought Nike sneakers for nursing school and I am not sure if they are acceptable or not

My worries are that they are not completely white, which I hope is still acceptable.
These are the requirements for shoes that my nursing department said:
Plain, all white leather shoes/sneakers
- No open toes or heels
- These can be nursing shoes or walking shoes manufactured by sports companies
- No clogs or open back shoes are allowed.
- No canvas or nylon shoes are permitted (essentially any shoe material that body fluids can soak through are not allowed).
- Aug 17, '12 by Nurse2Bee2013Don't get mess or anything. They will get dirty and yucky so quickly!! Stick with leather. I would recommend danskos but they are clogs.
- Aug 17, '12 by sKrisI bought these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o04_s00_i00
I like that hey are slip on--no laces to get nasty. Not too pricey and very comfortable.
- Aug 17, '12 by Cold StethoscopeSeveral New Balance models come in all- (or almost all-) white, no mesh, and wide widths for those who need them. In my experience, they're comfortable and rugged. I've had a pair of NB walking shoes that have lasted a long time and still look good.
- Aug 18, '12 by RED1984They would not be allowed at the school I'm attending, and by the sounds of it (RE: No canvas or nylon shoes are permitted (essentially any shoe material that body fluids can soak through are not allowed). They aren't allowed at yours either.....
We are allowed to wear white OR black, and I chose black because our scrub pants are black....

They come in white as well, and are solid leather....
