    I just had a few random questions not sure if anyone can answer them.

    Just wondering if anyone bought the stethoscope already. Was debating which one to buy.

    Also, anyone know the price on the Nurse Pak we have to purchase?

    If I buy the ebook bundle can I print certain pages that I would want to mark on or highlight? I am debating if I should buy the actual books to be able to mark on them or just do the ebook bundle. When I priced it there was a 50 dollar difference which I would pay for the convenience of not having to carry all the books, but I want to be able to have the option to print pages if I want to.

    That's a great question! I'm debating also especially since I've never done ebooks for any class I will be reading constantly.
    I would assume so but not sure.

    Get a Littmann or Prestige! All the nurses I work with have on or the other......all the doctors have Littmann stethoscopes!

    That's not the nurse pack....the nurse pack is needles, iv saline, gauze, etc that I know of! The other items are just required supplies!

    And I am pretty sure you get the nurse pack on campus bc of the contents but I could be wrong!

    Yes, from what I understand, the nurse pak should be bought at the book store. Every program has different items in their nurse pack, so it's important that you purchase them where indicated in your paperwork.

    I did double check in the paper work and you have to take your class schedule to the bookstore and purchase it. Someone who started last semester said its around 40 bucks. This is getting expensive! lol

    @ jewels2012 I would highly recommend getting a Littmann and if possible the highest level that you can afford. Not saying that you have to go all out with the electronic ones that are $400+ but the ones in the mid $100 are worth the extra money. I am also starting in the spring and have been in EMS for several years prior. Trust me your stethoscope is your main assessment tool and something you will be using for many years to come assuming you stay in this field. There is a very large difference b/w a $20 and $100 dollar stethoscope! Plus Littmanns' last forever and pretty much any part on them can be changed out so if it breaks you can repair it for less than $10 bucks. One of the nurses that I work with has had one for 25+ years and it is still going strong...

    I just ordered the Littman Classic II SE on Amazon for $65... I saw it at the uniform shop for $85. Hopefully it will live up to all its promises! lol
