The scrubs are Barco in Hunter Green, but I see you've already done your research on that. There was a small selection of white labcoats we were allowed to choose from also, but no white scrubs. I know Stacey's offered embroidery with the purchase of our uniforms, and pretty sure they would embroider yours for a small fee. Although I've heard of students having purchased equipment for clinical use at other programs there has been no mention of it at GBCC. I'm pretty sure the theory is that the facilities purchase, test and maintain or choose not to maintain this equipment, and if there is a malfunction they are responsible. Even if done with the best of intentions if your equipment malfunctions and someone is inadvertently hurt, you could be held responsible. I'm not saying a pulse ox will cause direct harm, but your care would be different if a client had actual O2 sats of 86% as compared to a faulty reading of 96%. You need the basics, Stethoscope, scissors, kelly clamps, and penlight. I seem to hear as well out of the cheap stethoscopes as my cardiology 3, but it's a personal preference. I still hear compressors in the background and it's been a few years since I've regularly been on the jobsite, so don't base your choice on my recommendation, lol. Many students have smartphones with many apps downloaded for use also, and instructor's allow lectures to be recorded, but have a preference that we ask before recording as a courtesy. As far as GPS, you'll repeatedly be at the same clinical sites, so if you're comfortable with Mapquest you'd really be fine. I often have more difficulty navigating inside the facilities than I do of finding them.
