Hi! My program requires me to purchase a reflex hammer. Good luck!!
Jul 9, '11
Only thing I needed to have was a stethoscope and a PDA with the required software. My clinical sites had all the other equipment such as otoscopes, opthalmoscopes, reflex hammers, BP cuffs, ect. Unless you plan on doing a lot of home visits, or are going to be setting up your own practice, I'm not sure you you're going to really need that stuff.
I'm an FNP now and the office I work with has all the equipment I need and even have a travel bag for doing home visits if needed, so I've never purchased any.
