I enrolled in CNA for the summer & I received a letter saying that I should purchase a white uniform
& shoes & a watch with a second hand. Is it a regular nurse uniform or a specific one for CNA? Where can I find it? For the shoes, is it athletic shoes or what?

My CNA school allowed us to buy our uniforms anywhere A's long A's we bought the right color. A lot of us went to the thrift store. Wal mart was kind of expensive. you will probably want to buy nice uniforms once you get a job, so I wouldn't spend more money than I had to on scrubs for CNA class. Once you know your size you can even buy online.I bought my watch from a medical supply store near a research hospital affiliated with a medical school. I bought a cute purple one with a large face and military and regular time. At the place I work, a lot of nurses wear large faced white watches- like juicy or g shock, I think.Re shoes: dansko is cool once you're working, if you can afford them. I haven't yet bought any. For CNA school and now whole I work, I designate 2 pairs of tennis shoes so I can alternate becausey feet sweat a lot and my feet and shoes will stink if I wear the same ones each day.When I worked and did clinicals in a skilled nursing facility, I only wore certain shoes because I was exposed to so much poop and had to hive showers daily , do I didn't want to wear shoes that I wore at the snf anywhere else.
