Try some better running shoes and leg stretchesumpiron: when you have time though out your shift. my legs hurt when i first started too but your legs strenghthen and your body will get used to being on your feet all day. give it time. I don't wear support hose but alot of nurses i work with that have varicose veins do and they say it helps. Best of luck on your clinicals.
Support pantyhose do a good work. I wear them under white pants. But we have open toed shoes here. My mom, who is a nurse, recommends white cotton socks over pantyhose. This gives a more modest look than nylon feet.

You are lucky! We are not covered by health disability if we injure our feet while wearing open toed or clog style shoes. And clogs are sooooo comfy!
I can't wear full panty hose. Being tall, most hose are designed for peopel that are 5'8" at the tallest and have 30 inch legs. I have 4 more inches of legs, so it takes all of 20 minutes before the crotch of pantyhose is midway down my thighs.
My thigh high TEDs are great, no pain since i've worn them, i just 'adjust' the leg bands every so often.
