Best Littmann Stethoscope for Nursing School

  1. Hello everyone,
    I will be starting Nursing School in May '17. I will be purchasing a stethoscope before starting the program, but I am torn between which one is best. I have seen great reviews for the Littmann Classic II SE, but am also interested in the Littmann Classic III. Which one would you recommend is best for Nursing School?

    A great rule of thumb is if you are performing physical assessments and monitoring, to go with the 3M™ Littmann® Classic III™ Stethoscope. If you are performing detailed diagnostic auscultation, to go with the 3M™ Littmann® Cardiology IV™ Stethoscope.

    Littmann Classic II SE is good for overall performance. Classic III is also a good option.
    But, In my opinion Classic II SE works better for Nursing Student
