Hey everyone! I'm fairly new to this site, and also to nursing! I start school next week...and was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on which brand stethoscope to purchase for clinicals?! It needs to be a dual-head.... I know they can get super expensive...I'm really just looking for a practical, trusted brand! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks guys! Good luck to all who have started classes, or those who are preparing to start next week!

The littmans are nice... dont get me wrong.. but i know a ton of girls who lost theirs.. i bought mine and it cost 10$ like literally its a canadain company, and it comes with a 3 year warnty.. its simple, but you can hear everything you need to, and if youre only in 1st year a littman can cost you an arm and a leg that you dont have to spare..
The mailing address of the company i got mine from is
AMG MEDICAL INC.
or check the website.... http://www.amgmedical.com/site/cate.asp
and do a seach in the pro diagnostics for stethoscopes.. im not sure if the ship to the states or what not, but you can always contact the companies...
best wishes to you in your fist rotation
