What do you carry your gear to clinicals in? - page 3

Right now my gear is just loose in my backpack, the last thing I want to do is jack it up. Have you found a safer, better way to carry it? Do they make bags just for BP cuff, stethoscope, pen light,... Read More

    I don't need any books at clinical. We have pre-clinical, and we do everything that requires the book the night before. There just isn't that much to being with me.
    Ah, that would be nice! This year we aren't allowed to go early or the night before. The theory being that we can't do that as a nurse, so we need to get used to it now. In theory, it makes sense. In practice, it's annoying!

    I would love to not have to go to preclinical because the nurses/patients are constantly asking me for help and I have to tell them sorry, my instructor isn't here so I can't do anything. I feel like an idiot. Also, even if we go at 11pm the night before half the time the patients have been discharged by 6am the next day so all that time spent doing paperwork is wasted. At least I only have to go for one of my two clinicals this semester. We'll see what happens next semester.

    Our college gave all the new students one of those nylon drawstring backpacks at orientation. That is what I carry my stethoscope and two sizes of B/P cuffs in.

    I keep all my clinical supplies in a pastic bag in my glove compartment and then take it out and put it in my pockets or around my neck before clinicals. Why in gods name are you needing to bring a BP cuff into a hospital!? I had a small notebook, black pen, watch, stethescope, chapstick and my name badge. If I brought my clinical papers in I folded them lengthwise and put them in my pants pocket. less is better

    I thought we would shed preclinical, but my clinical instructor this semester told me we will always have preclinical except the last one during preceptorship.

    We don't, but we do have to bring them to labs and it is easier to keep all my stuff together in one bag. I also carry my extra diaphragm and bell for my stethoscope.
